Excursion

Chateaux & Terroirs, on the Bordeaux wine roads

From 50€ / pers

Do you have only a few hours to discover the Bordeaux wine country? Then this "flying visit" is just for you! Are you interested in seeing mythical châteaux in the Médoc? Famous estates in Saint-Emilion? The "golden" wines of Sauternais? Yes, but there is so much more! Bordeaux also has plenty of lesser-known appellations, small family estates, affordable wines, etc.

  • A good overview for a first visit
  • Tour conducted by official guides with professional card, in French and in English
  • An attractive price for a first discovery of the Bordeaux vineyards
  • Discover the amazing underground church of Saint-Emilion
  • Due to the European Heritage Days on September 22, the destination is the Médoc on that day.

With this tour you will discover the diversity of the Bordeaux wines during an afternoon session every week. The destination is different every day and each one has its own special charms!

Saint-Emilion, the name of a famous charming village and of delicious wines, on Monday & Sunday.You will start with the visit of the amazing underground church in the Saint-Emilion village followed by a guided tour in the small streets. Then the tour continues with a visit to one wine estate in Saint-Emilion appellation or surroundings where you will learn about the winemaking process by discovering the vat room, the cellars with all the barrels, etc.. A tasting of 2 wines will be offered.

The Medoc on Tuesdays & Saturdays and Entre-deux-Mers on Thursdays with the visit of 2 wineries and wine tasting. Your guide will remind you at this point that you first of all taste wine with your eyes and nose!

MARIO CATTINI 01/05/2024
The trip was overall a good experience. The guide was excellent and relayed all the information clearly and interestingly. The coach we travelled in was also first class (and well driven). it was unfortunate that it was raining all day and the beauty of St Emilion could not be appreciated fully. THE VINEYAROUR WAS VERY INFORMATIVE AND WELL WORTH THE VISIT.

Great experience
Vinicius Cota 11/20/2023
A nice experience. Saint Emilion is a charming village and the vineyards are stunning. The bus was comfortable, the staff was kind and prepared, and everything was sharply on time. I am not sure the price is the best, but I do not regret having invested in this experience.

Answer from Monsieur l'Office de Tourisme et des Congrès de Bordeaux Métropole

Dear Vinicius, We thank you for your feedback. We are happy that you enjoyed the tour. The trip lasts 5 hours and is generally appreciated because of its good value, 50 euros is the best price that we propose comparing to 99 euros for a same time tour with our partnairs. We hope you will keep good memories of Bordeaux and we are looking forward to seeing you here again.

Too Many People
Paul Curran 10/07/2023
Our guide was wonderful. Our tour was almost wonderful. The size of the group was simply much too large. And an obnoxious couple pushing to the front of every single line, to the point of literally shoving a phone in the face of our very tolerant guide’s face(apparently recording) detracted greatly.

Answer from Monsieur Office de Tourisme et des Congrès de Bordeaux Métropole x

Dear Paul Curran, We thank you for your feedback and are happy that you enjoyed the tour. We propose tours by coach up to fifty persons to be able to have a good value offer for our visitors and we work with partners that have smaller group tours. Thank you for our guide, we transmit your impressions. Best regards. Bordeaux Tourism Office Team
