A wonderful day in St Emilion
Mary Wilson 09/23/2022
We enjoyed our day in St Emilion very much. Camille our driver guide was fantastic. Each place we stopped was carefully chosen and offered great insights. All wine tasted was delicious. We had a generous amount of time on our own for a leisurely lunch. Highly recommend!

Medoc wine tour
Jonathan Wyatt 09/19/2022
Thanks for a very nice day. This full day wine tour has changed since we last did it before Covid, when we visited 3 Classed Growth Chateaux and had lunch at one of them. However, we were properly entertained and had some tours of three very different chateaux, with some great hosts and lovely wines. Thoroughly recommended!

I totally enjoyed the tour since the guide(he was the elders, sorry for not remembering his name) was nice and proactive when explaining information about the city. I feel thankful so much for his work for a day. I definitely recommend this to others.

If you can rent a car do that
Millie 11/22/2021
Sort of a waste of time. Tour guide gave basic info that everyone knows and you go to the most basic, unimpressive vineyards(just two). Sorry.

Answer from Carole d'Ophorus

We always have very good comments regarding our guides and select carefully the Chateaux in order to offer a great experience to our clients, it is sad to see that your visit did not meet your expectations.

why did they want us to taste the provence rose?
samejima 11/07/2021
The guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about Medoc from him. We visited two wineries. The second winery was very impressive. We made many questions responded in a satisfactory manner. Also shopping at their shop was enjoyable. The first winery served us Provence Rose wine for our first tastings. As we live in Provence and drink Provence rose wine on a daily basis, to be honest with you, we were not so happy.

Answer from Carole from Ophorus

Bonjour samejima, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are sorry to read that you did not enjoy tasting the Provence wine of the first Chateau visited, they probably wanted to offer you this extra glass of wine to show you what they offer outside of Medoc area. However, we are pleased to read that your second visit was excellent. It is always a pleasure to know that our clients learned a lot during their tour. We sincerely hope having you back on tour very soon. Best, Carole from Ophorus team

Excellent
Natallia Vinahradava 09/09/2021
Our tour guide Emily was excellent. Great knowledge combined with her delightful sense of humour. She is a true Bordeaux lover. We loved the first vineyard more than the second one in bunker. More history and better presentation, but that’s a subjective opinion.

Answer from Carole from Ophorus

Bonjour Natallia, Thanks for sharing your feedback with us! It is a pleasure to read how much you enjoyed your wine tour along with our amazing guide Emily. Hope to see you back in France very soon. Best, Carole from Ophorus team

Leisurely, enjoyable discovery.
canuckshutterbug 08/16/2021
Overall, a wonderful day. Good weather helps. Chateaux selected were very clean, well-maintained, and yet contained historic elements. Indoor areas were easy to navigate and the staff were enormously helpful. The pace wasn't too brisk and there was always plenty of time to ask questions. Complimentary souvenirs were a nice touch. Downsides would be the van. It was a bit tight, but then cars in France don't really have a rep as being roomy. The choice of vintages was a bit thin, I thought there might be more available. Super plus was our guide Julie who was very patient, full of fun facts, prompt, and very organized.
