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!

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.

It was a good time! Me and my wife really enjoyed our winery tour. The way to Saint-Emilion was beautiful, and the weather also was very good. The wine we tasted were great, so we bought 3 bottles of wine at the winery we visited.
