Une journée inoubliable
Gaëlle Tournade 08/17/2019
Excellente organisation. Très bon accueil dans les 3 châteaux visités. Belle diversité de domaine offrant un bon aperçu de châteaux aux volumes de production et techniques de vinification différents. Formidable accueil par Sylvie au caractère fantastique à l'occasion d'un déjeuner local typique et convivial. Formidable expérience que de s'arrêter pour admirer les châteaux les plus prestigieux du Médoc. Taille de groupe idéale pour prise en charge individuelle soignée et faciliter le contact. Merci et bravo !

Overly expensive, not to be recommended
Patrick C 03/16/2019
Too expensive for what we received. Visited two chateaus. First chateau we were given two tastes of wine. This tour would normally cost ¤10 on the chateau website. For lunch we were brought to a small restaurant that was very out of the way from the Saint Emilion village. There were mo vegetarian options even though this was advised in the morning. We received boiled rice and fried potatoes. We expected better for a tour which costs ¤150 per person. The guides were excellent however their good humour and knowledge unfortunately did not balance how overpriced the tour was. I would not use this company again and I would not recommend this tour to a friend.

Answer from The Bordeaux Top Growth Team

Answer from the organiser : Dear Patrick,Thank you very much for your feedback regarding your tour last Saturday, we have read it carrefully. We are deeply sorry and surprised by the content of your comment. We are always looking for improvements of our services, so we take your message very seriously and with great care.Please note that for our regular clients, we have negociated with the restaurant a single and unique typical menu of the region composed of 3 courses, 1 glass of wine and the coffee. The restaurant has been able to adapt at best to offer you a special menu suitable for vegetarians. It appears that you did not like it, and we do apologise about that. Indeed, you should have mentioned your food preferences at the booking, well before the D-day. We will be very careful about that in the future.Also, may I kindly remind you that the price you have paid for this wine tour (149¤) includes not only the catering, but also the 2 visits/tastings, as well as the transportation with Romane, the driver/guide.I wish you a pleasant day. Best regards,The Bordeaux Top Growth Team

Chateaux Jean Nouvel
Jojo 02/09/2019
I suggest your guides at least mention the chateux that have been re-designed by Jean Nouvel: Cheval Blanc, Dominique and Grace Dieu des Prieurs. it would be very interesting to have the opportunity to tour these chateaux, which seem to be within walking distance of each other, and learn about grand cru classe wine quality, technology used and design.

Answer from Visiter Bordeaux

Dear Jojo, You can not visit these wines châteaux because they are open only to wine professionals. By cons I tell guides to mention in the future the name of these wine chateaux. Cordially

Great day in the Bordeaux region!
Excellent 11/17/2018
Brilliant all day tour that took us to both major wine areas in Bordeaux as well as the gorgeous medieval village of St Emilion, plus you get a lovely restaurant lunch and free time in the village of St Emilon. Two beautiful chateau/vineyards visited in each area. Christopher was a great driver and tour guide as well. It was nice and relaxed and comfortable, 7 of us on the tour.
