Answer from Daniel (Guide conférencier)

Bonjour Madame Barrault. Merci d'avoir participé à notre excursion à Saint Emilion et d'avoir pris le temps d'écrire un avis auquel je prête la plus grande attention. En premier lieu, je suis désolé que cette journée ne vous ai pas satisfaite. Nos châteaux partenaires sont pourtant des Grands Crus de Saint-Emilion et ont été choisis avec le plus grand soin. Aussi, je puis vous assurer que vous avez dégusté du vin issu du Château Panet. Cependant, la perception olfactive et gustative variant d'une personne à l'autre, un vin ne peut plaire à tous, n'est ce pas? Concernant le repas, il vous à en été indiqué dès le début de l’excursion (avant de monter dans le van) le planning de la journée ainsi que les possibilités de restauration sur place qui s’offraient à vous (boulangerie ou restaurant). Pour le confort et la sécurité de nos clients, nous avons pris le parti d’effectuer la dépose entre les lieux visités sur des parkings. Je suis vraiment navré que vous ayez pu penser qu'il en serait autrement. Enfin, pour se qui est de la rapidité de la visite, nous prenons vivement en considération votre évaluation et réfléchissons à un nouveau format de visite, plus long afin de toujours répondre à la demande de nos clients et d'améliorer la qualité de nos services. Bien cordialement, Daniel M. Votre guide.

Margaux était vraiment "la magnifique"!
André Lefrançois 07/10/2019
Une guide délicieuse, soucieuse de rencontrer les intérêts du visiteur et experte en oenologie, trois domaines représentatifs de l'appellation et assez différents (quel bonheur de visiter le Marquis de Terme!), et le confort d'un mini-bus délicieusement climatisé pendant la canicule (et harmonieusement piloté!). Quoi de plus pour recommander cette activité, surtout si elle est gérée par Caroline?

Answer from Max Travel

Merci pour votre excellent retour, André. Nous sommes ravis de constater que vous avez passé une agréable journée et apprécié les différents domaines visités ainsi que les vins dégustés.

An afternoon in Margaux with a squeaky van
ann 06/19/2019
This trip offered two vineyard visits with tasting and a look at the Margaux vineyard from the gate. The tour was well structured with two different experiences and the guide informative and organised. Unfortunately the passenger van had an annoying squeak/ rattle in the rear which made hearing the guide very difficult and uncomfortable for the three back seat passengers. We advised the guide, who couldn’t rectify the problem, and then provided a sound recording to assist the mechanics in sorting it out. Sadly we haven’t heard back from the Tour company in over two weeks which is disappointing.

Answer from Max Travel

Hi Ann, It is nice to see you enjoyed the tour despite this mechanical problem. We are working on fixing it and we also use a micro so that the guide can be heard in the back of the van.

Excellente expérience. Le guide était très aimable et compétente. On aurait apprécié plus de temps libre pour explorer St Emilion mais je n'hésitérais pas à recommander cette excursion.

Answer from Max Travel

Merci beaucoup ce retour. Nous sommes contents de voir que vous avez passé un agréable moment à Saint-Emilion et prenons en compte votre recommandation.

interessante giornata bordolese
Tiziana 06/14/2019
La giornata è stata ben organizzata e la visita alla vigna degli chateaux con relativa degustazione molto interessante. La nostra guida, Carolina, brava e cordiale ci ha accompagnato per tutta la visita avendo attenzione che tutto funzionasse. Ho apprezzato il pranzo organizzato presso il primo chateaux, mangiare all'aperto con vista sulla vallata di Bordeaux è stato molto bello e rilassante. Sicuramente consiglio la visita.

Brilliant day out
Rose Alice 09/29/2019
Booked this trip before I went to Bordeaux for a day out learning about and tasting wine. I don't know a lot about wine and St Emillion looked stunning, so I wanted to do it. I was travelling to Bordeaux solo so I knew I would be with other people for a day and be able to chat. The vineyard and chateau tour was great. The wines were great. The scenery was amazing. St Emillion was great and so pretty. It was one of the prettiest places I have ever been to. The food and wine was great! It was a great day out and our tour guide Caroline was amazing! I learnt so much and had a great day out.

A superb tour
Brian McBride 08/30/2019
I would highly recommend to anyone to spend a little extra and book this tour. It was the highlight of our holiday to Bordeaux. Our guide Christelle was a delight. Friendly and informative, she didn't just recite a set form of words, it felt more like a conversation. We learnt a lot from her. The tour of the vineyard was excellent and the wine was delicious. St Emilion was beautiful Christelle recommended some places to eat but we tried somewhere else we fancied and the food was excellent. Christelle gave us a tour around and showed us places that we would never have seen by ourselves. In summary. Book this tour.

A good way to spend a Sunday
PATRICIA RYAN 08/11/2019
Overall the experience was great, my one disappointment was that we only visited one winery.
J
Great experience worth to book it
Jens Beimel 06/08/2019
Our guide was great, with an incredible knowledge about St. Emilion. The visit at the Chateau was a truly unique experience, lots of hidden facts about Bordeaux wine makers. Highly recommendable.
