Nice wine tour
Joost 06/25/2022
The wine tour was nice. Julie was a good driver and also had nice contacts with everyone in the group. The chateaux we visited were also well selected. I can recommend this tour as it has a good quality/price ratio.

Camilienne Elicier 06/22/2022
Très belle excursion dans Saint-Emilion avec notre guide Julie qui était au top! Souriante, passionné et pertinente dans les informations qu’elle nous a apporté. Les dégustations de vins et les visites de domaines étaient super! Je recommande à 100%!!!!

Loved!!
Wendy Wecksell 06/21/2022
It was such a wonderful trip and group! I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to do a tour of Saint Emilion. The only suggestion is to make the assumptions around tipping your guide clearer. I wasn't sure how that was supposed to work since Europe is so different from the USA, so making that clearer would be ideal!

Loved This Tour
Megan Gorman 06/20/2022
Absolutely loved our morning with Clemons! The drive there we asked him tons of questions about wine and the region and he was sooo knowledgeable about everything. The tour and tasting at the Chateau was great. And the walk through the town was a perfect end cap to the day. Definitely book this tour for the Bordeaux wine experience!

Entertaining and informative
robert wheatley 06/19/2022
We had a wonderful afternoon. Our guide, Yan, made the drive out fun by keeping up a commentary on the wine industry in general, Medoc in particular, wines of the region and just about any subject we brought up. The information he provided on Bordeaux and what to see and a little history ,as well, was most entertaining and useful. We would recommend this tour.

Had a great full day group tour with Elise, she is a great guide and very knowledgeable about everything Boudreaux. Regions, restaurant and bar recommendations for after the tour, wine knowledge superb and made the tour fun and enjoyable - the 8 hours flew by.

Great day out to understand Bordeaux wine region
Niamh Simms 06/05/2022
We had a wonderful day learning about the wine making process and the detailed difference between small plots of land and how they influence the wine. The picnic was fantastic and the sparkling wine in St Emillion was a great surprise. A great introduction for those who know something not not too much about wine!

Great day!
Nick 05/16/2022
My wife and I had an excellent experience! Easy to meet in the morning, transportation was safe and comfortable, our guide Julie was fun & knowledgeable, lunch was delicious, it was fun to explore St Emilion, and we liked all the tastings. We learned a little something from each tasting, bought some wine during the tour, and shipped a case home. Our only regret is scheduling it too late in our stay in Bordeaux to take advantage of Julie's recommendations!

What an amazing experience, Cam our guide really made this trip, she was outstanding. The selection of winery’s was excellent and the lunch was delicious too. Well worth the money to see some beautiful places we would have missed out on if just staying in Bordeaux itself.
