Great day in the vineyards
Jon Van der Walt 10/07/2019
A very well organised tour with a great guide. The Château visits were informative and the lunch was the highlight. Excellent food in a lovely room gave us a chance to chat to other travellers. This is the best of the various tours on offer, in my opinion.
More than wine tasting

Good wineries, informative information, a great meal. If you can spare a Wednesday when this tour is offered take it!
A good opportunity to discover a famous wine region of France
Jeff M 09/14/2019
Interesting tour of the region covering three chateaux and an opportunity to taste a variety of wines. The coach from central Bordeaux was comfortable and the bi-lingual tour guide on board was clearly highly knowledgeable and passionate about the region. The setting of the first vineyard was stunning. The lunch at the second vineyard was excellent and we were fortunate to have the host of that chateau on our table who was fluent in both English and French describing how she came to be an expert in this industry. The third visit was also nice but perhaps the day was beginning to stretch at that stage, possibly due to the effect of the long lunch! Nevertheless, would certainly recommend.
Medoc 1855 premier cru wines and great lunch

Our guide was very informative and interesting. The chateaux visited were all interesting and we enjoyed the wines. Lunch was outstanding - we were expecting a small buffet lunch but had a really fine, full meal with plenty of wine. Would recommend to friends.
