A
Perfect Half Day Trip to St. Emilion
Alexandra Armacost 02/27/2024
My partner and I booked the half-day tour with Emmanuel, and it was well worth the cost and time. Emmanuel was an excellent and knowledgable guide. It was the perfect way to explore outside of Bordeaux, with great wine and history. I would recommend everyone to book this tour - far better than a huge bus full of people!

Muito bom, recomendo!

Emanuelle é espetacular, muito simpático e muito conhecedor do que fala. A visita ao Chateau Coutet foi de uma naturalidade muito boa, um bocado desenhada pela vibe de todos os elementos que a compõem (staff, estrutura, etc). A visita inclui uma ótima prova (especialmente com uma colheita de 2011 e de 2020, e mais uma especialidade do chateau que não iremos desvendar). A visita à cidade de St Emilion foi boa, conseguindo-se no espaço de uma hora e meia ver tudo o que a cidade, que vem sendo abandonada, tem para oferecer. Os macarons foram um must e no complemento de tudo, é fácil resumir a uma excelente e tranquila visita. Adoramos e recomendamos muito!
