Answer from Bordeaux Wine TrailsMerci 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
Answer from Bordeaux Wine TrailsDear 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
