I went on this tour with a few girlfriends and we loved every minute! It was a shame that the weather wasn't great but I would love to come back and do the full-day tour in September. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and super friendly, the chateau's hosts were lovely and we got to taste some delicious wines. I do wish we had a little bit more time to explore the town itself as 15 minutes was very rushed, even to get a coffee. However, it was a successful afternoon! Loved it x
Great afternoon
Highly recomended, Juan our tour leader was very professional and made our tour very interesting.... Well done !
Excellent tour

We liked everything about this tour. Our guide Clement was fantastic, really informative, friendly and great company- a perfect guide. It was really easy to book through the tourism office in Bordeaux. We were in a small group, comfortable transport, visited 2 very different chateaux in Saint Emillion, enjoyed the wine tasting immensely and now know how to properly taste and evaluate wine. We also really enjoyed walking around the medieval town which is beautiful. Highly recommend and now want to explore some of the other areas on a future visit. Will definitely book through the tourist office again. They were super helpful with their advice and the tour was really excellent value.
