Extraordinary
Smile 06/18/2018
It's fun to drive that little buggy and everyone smiles at you or asks you lots of questions which of course I couldn't answer. But the best thing really was the wine tour at Chateau Castres where the owner took more than an hour for a very personal tour and tasting. I was just one traveller, so Mr. Rodrigues is obviously very dedicated and professional!

Super expérience ! Trop fun

Après quelques explications concernant le fonctionnement du buggy et du GPS, nous avons suivi le circuit nous amenant jusqu'à Margaux en passant par une visite de cave avec dégustation. Nous avons également pu profiter d'un beau panorama sur l'estuaire de la Gironde. À chaque point d'intérêt, l'audioguide donne des infos super intéressantes. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié cet après-midi en buggy, manière originale de découvrir le Médoc. À conseiller pour les personnes qui veulent passer un après-midi fun, hors du tourisme de masse.

Agréable escapade dans le Médoc
Marie 05/10/2018
Tout d'abord, l'équipe a pris le temps de nous expliquer le fonctionnement de la voiture ainsi que le parcours. La voiture est facilement maniable et relativement confortable. Le parcours est agréable et complet.

excellent and accomodating tour
karla and chris 08/26/2018
We had a fantastic trip around the Graves vineyards! We arrived late as it was a Sunday and public transport was a lot more difficult than anticipated, but the tour operator was very understanding, flexible and reasonable and had a buggy waiting for us. The weather was great for us but definitely dress warmly as I'd imagine poorer weather would have had us pretty chilly in the convertible buggy! Beautiful scenery, lots of freedom, great wine - 5 stars, highly recommended!

Great fun way of exploring Bordeaux's vineyards
Chris and Karla 08/26/2018
We had a great day on the buggy tour. Despite arriving late due to transport issues, the lady in charge was extremely helpful and kindly sorted everything out for us so that we could still do the tour. The buggy was great fun to drive, the tour was scenic and of course the wine tasting was lovely. The GPS navigation and tour guide system was a great idea and easy to use. We even had time to visit another chateau for a tasting ourselves. Highly recommended for a great day out in Bordeaux!

Unique and fun way to explore The Graves Vineyards
Karen 06/04/2018
We would highly recommend this trip as a really fun and unique way to explore the beautiful surroundings outside of Bordeaux itself. The owners of this business are extremely helpful, friendly and professional, and set you off with all of the information that you need to really enjoy the trip. You do need a fairly confident driver and navigator but the trip is well organised and the navigation app is really easy to use, allowing you to take a little detour for lunch etc. The tour of the Chateaux at the end of the trip was really informative and very personal and was the perfect end to the day. This is a really nice way to explore a very beautiful area of France and we would highly recommend it!!
