Waste of time and money
Sergio Granados Torres 10/19/2019
Due to a mistake of the company i wasn't able to do the tour and ir was ver discusting, they didn't offered me any solución even when i told them that i didn't want my money back, i only wanted to have the tour a different day because they booked my tour when i haven't arrived yet in Bordeaux. I wouldn't recommend ir to anyone. Also they took my 84 euros and didn't help me of find any solución. A completely shit.

Not your run of the mill winery tour
John 10/18/2019
Our guide took us to see two very different wineries near Bordeaux. The first was special: all natural and organic. It was a small family owned chateau. The owner explained its process for making wine, including how they grow the grapes. We also got to see the development over time of the equipment used in wine making at the chateau. The second winery was much larger and more modern, processing the crop from many different growers in the area. Our guide was knowledgable and spoke well. The bus was modern and clean. The tour was well organized. I would recommend the tour to friends.

Great experience
Piotr 10/15/2019
Direct contact With producers. You can get as much details as requested. No clear program description on website, but final outcome is outstanding. Groups can reach 50 people (full bus), which is too much - should be divided into 2 guides.

Wonderful Saint-Émilion
Tor 10/13/2019
The whole trip to Saint-Émilion was wonderful. We had a chance to walk through the narrow city streets and see the monolithic church, which was very nice. The second part was at a vineyard where we had the chance to learn about the wine making process as well as taste a few wines. The tour guide was nice and knowledgeable throughout the whole trip and provided interesting insights about the areas we where passing through.

Day out in the Medoc
Kenneth Millsteed 07/12/2019
We visited 3 wineries in the Medoc region on our 'Best Of' tour. The wineries featured beautiful gardens, diverse architecture and of course great wine. The representatives who managed our visit at each of the wineries were very professional and welcoming. The presentations on the history and operation of the wineries was very interesting and surprisingly diverse with insights to the various issues and challenges in managing the business. Our tour guide and the driver were intent on providing a memorable day and were very much appreciated by the participants. The only issue was a general issue in touring in France, that is a lack of catering for vegetarians. A lunch was included and was fine for non vegetarians, but a vegetarian salad was a challenge. Please ask at booking if there are dietary needs. Very much enjoyed the day and recommend this tour.

Great tour!
Harry 06/27/2019
Great tour, highly recommended. Excellent tour guide. Be warned though- I told them in advance I was vegetarian, and they tried to serve me fish for lunch...so please be explicit with any dietary requirements (it appears that being vegetarian in France has a different meaning to elsewhere!)

BEST of BORDEAUX
Couple fro 10/06/2018
Wonderful day spent touring the St Emilion area of Bordeaux with Christine as our guide. Christine did an excellent job informing us about the area and the Chateaus -alternating between English and French. Our driver too did an excellent job transporting us to each destination. The three wineries they choose for us were terrific and we had an extr bonus of spending some time in the town of St Emilion. Highly recommend this tour and give it 5 stars. The only negative is the organization with the boarding process - it was chaotic and the Tourism office did not open until everyone had arrived. We all had to stand outside unsure of what to do.
