A good tour but could have been better
Elaine forristal 08/13/2022
Booking the tour and the meeting point was easy and convenient. Brigitte, our guide was an absolutely lovely lady. She was excellent. The bus was excellent. It would have been better if we were told upon booking, that we would have 2 hours in St. Emillion to explore and some advice on the best way to spend the 2 hours would have been helpful. This information should be given at the time of booking by Isabella and then could have been restated by Brigitte onboard. The tour guide at the winery was not good. She spoke too fast and was not loud enough. She allowed no time for questions and discouraged questions throughout. We were rushed through the winery.

Chateaux & Terroirs - Wednesday Graves/Sauterne
christopher watton 08/01/2022
this trip was everything i had hoped for and more. a region i had not been to before (graves) two beautiful, historic and fascinating chateaux, with excellent presentations at both. the bordeaux guide was excellent too, informative, relaxed and helpful. even though the bus was full, the tour was well organised, so it did not feel crowded. so, just as much information and fun as would be expected on a smaller group tour, but at a much lower price! and now i know all about liquorous wine!!

Beautiful area however could not hear what was said by vineyards as too large a group
Kath 07/21/2022
Beautiful area, comfortable coach, excellent tour guide on coach. Unfortunately most of the trip was nasef on listening was was being said in wine warehouse. I could not hear what was being said as there are approximately 60 people on the tour. A microphone and speaker box is required . Maybe a walk through the vines would be nice
