It was a good time! Me and my wife really enjoyed our winery tour. The way to Saint-Emilion was beautiful, and the weather also was very good. The wine we tasted were great, so we bought 3 bottles of wine at the winery we visited.

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.

Kim Hyerim 08/31/2019
It was so nice winery tour and so funny. Activities are impressive, educational. And owner of each winery, they are so friendly, professional. Also Guide too. I think that these tours(any winery tours in Bordeaux) are valuable for Bordeaux trip.

Good experience, could be better
Ivan 08/30/2019
We spend a fun and enlightening afternoon tour with the best guide ever (Yan). We went to 2 different wineries, explaining the wine making process and having wine tasting at the end. The tour is pretty good, but would be better if they let us know in advance while booking which wineries are included. It's easier to decide and meet expectations if we knew in advance. Nevertheless still pretty OK.

Answer from Bordeaux Wine Trails

Merci Ivan! Thank you for this nice review. We understand your will to know the wineries in advance. However, it is not possible for us to do so, as we can't book visits at wineries before clients book a tour with us (or we would have to cancel reservations at wineries everytime a tour is not booked, and we have 5 different tours possible each day of the week!). We are glad to see that you enjoyed the tour anyway and we will pass your kind words on to Yan, he will be happy to hear your lovely compliment. Warm regards

Great Trip
Will Schwartz 07/05/2019
This was a great tour. I only had one full day in Bordeaux, so this tour gave me an opportunity to see vineyards in Graves, Bordeaux Superieur and Saint Emilion all in one day. I also enjoyed seeing the town of Saint Emilion. This is a great tour to do if you only have a short stay in Bordeaux, and if you are trying to see as many places in one day as possible at a reasonable price. Thank you!

Answer from Bordeaux Wine Trails

Merci Will! Thank you for this lovely review. We are glad to see that you had a great time with us and that you enjoyed our regions and Chateaus selection. The next time you drop by Bordeaux, do let us know! Warm regards

Fabulous Wine Tour and Experience
Aly King 06/11/2019
This full day experience was well worth the money and time. The day was full of opportunities to learn about the Bordeaux wine region and taste some amazing wine. Each Chateaux was very different which made each stop unique. The opportunity to have lunch at one Chateaux was a highlight of the trip. Beautiful scenery, amazing selection of food, and great wine you can't beat that. Our tour guide/driver (Kammie V) was extremely knowledge and very friendly. She made the experience even better. I would recommend this experience to anyone looking for a full day of wine tasting and wine knowledge.

Answer from Bordeaux Wine Trails

A highly recommended excursion to the vineyards
Philippe 10/12/2018
We researched wine tours in Bordeaux with the Bordeaux Office of Tourism and this tour was the most comprehensive. We loved it. It offered a full day from 9h15 to 6h15pm visiting and wine tasting 3 vineyards in Graves and St Emilion, including a lovely picnic at one of the wineries drinking their wine plus a tour of the lovely village of St Emilion and enjoying a glass of Cremant sparkling in the garden of an old cloister. Jonathan, our guide speaks perfect English, is very knowledgeable, professional, friendly and approachable. He runs his tour business, selects and books the wineries in advance and these wineries offer very few tours each day. He has lived on a winery in Australia and visited US wineries, so he has a very open mind beyong Bordeaux. You get a personalized welcome, a tour for a small group (there were 7 of us and Jonathan's van can take a maximum of 8), with no crowds. Jonathan knows the winery guides personally. Our group of Latvian, Australian, Irish, American and French blended perfectly and we learned a lot about wine in a lighthearted atmosphere. A very highly recommended tour if you want to visit several vineyards, taste white and red Bordeaux and sparkling Crémant.
