Saint-Emilion Wine Lovers (afternoon)
Zsofia Stangl 12/02/2021
I had a wonderful afternoon on this excursion. Our guide and our hosts at the wineries were very knowledgeable, nice and fun. At both places they offered 4-5 different wines for tasting. In addition, Saint-Emilion and the region is beautiful. Great experience!

Answer from Jonathan

Thank Yann for the impressive excursion

We thank Yann very much for his comprehensive services. We visited two wineries. They were very impressive. We enjoy tasting, walking in the historical village and shopping. It was one of my best wine excursions in my life.

Perfect way to see Saint Emilion in a personal way
Dana Pariseau-Beach 10/03/2021
We took an all day eBike tour of the Saint Emilion Appellation of Bordeaux with a small group of tourists. Our guide Yan was fun and very easy going. His abilty to go back forth with multiple languages was impressive and the tour was guided in English. He lead us around the region giving some great history and cultural significance of the wine classifications. The area is home to more than 800 wine chateaus, and they are packed into every corner. Only a few are are classified as Gran Crue Classe however. Many of the wineries are transitioning (or already have) to fully organic, including the ones on our tour. We tasted at two of these wineries and had a short winery/vineyard tour lead by the winemaker’s wife. The wines were fantastic. At the second winery, after a nice comparative tasting, we had lunch/picnic by a pond along side of the vines. We were within a couple of weeks of harvest so the vines were full and most vineyards were getting ready. The tour of the town was very personalized and felt like visiting with friends. The eBikes were easy to use and the pace was comfortablr. There was van support in case of any issues and the tour team was great. We would highly recommend this as a quaint, active, & personalized experience.

Great intro to Saint Emilion
Marina Z 08/27/2021
We had a great time on this tour: visited a small winery and their wine shop where we tasted red wines, walked in the town and saw the center. I only wish we visited the underground church. Our guide Marie was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Excellent afternoon in the Medoc
Melissa 09/19/2020
Great afternoon of visiting vineyards and wine tasting with a knowledgeable and fun guide. It was interesting to see two very different vineyards. Excellent communication prior to the tour from the owner to provide alternatives/suggestions (as initially I was the only guest and the tour would have been cancelled in that case), but luckily in the end another couple joined and I was able to enjoy this afternoon in the Medoc.

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

Good choice of winery
Fuyuki Kawasaki 04/22/2019
They took us to two different wineries which has different characters. One winery offered a tasting of grapes(merlot and cabernet sauvignon). I thought they were sour but actually, it was very sweet. It changed my image toward grapes for wines. Our guide and people at wineries speak fluent English and their explanation was easy to understand. The driving by the guide was very good and safe. I highly recommend this tour.

Answer from Bordeaux Wine Trails

Dear Kawasaki San, We are so glad that you had an enjoyable visit with us. Through our different tours we try to showcase the diversity in Bordeaux’s traditional wine making industry. We also focus a lot on sensorial aspects during the tours to make the experience educative and fun, the grapes tasting was a part of this. Your compliments and recommendation boosts our motivation in continuing to deliver the very best to our visitors. Thank you once again and hope to see you again next time you drop by Bordeaux! Warm regards Julie Bordeaux Wine Trails
