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.

Amazing chateaux, great visiting St Emilion, really and professional nice guide, lunch was perfect and all wines were amazing. Think it's a bit overpriced, though.

Everything about the tour was great, the tour guide Frederick, the choice of great vineyards, the lunch was incredible! Worth the money just for the lunch and the fabulous tour of chateau bouglais! Natalie and Jerome were so hospitable and we all really enjoyed it. It was a long day but for us, it was well worth it and you get to see some beautiful Bordeaux countryside into the bargain!
