I liked the educational tour hosted by our guide. He's clearly knowledgable and provided interesting insights about Bordeaux and St. Emillion. The van was comfortable and hassle-free. What I didn't like was the "chocolate pairing". I was expecting good chocolates to pair with the 3 varieties of wine. However, the chocolate was an ordinary chocolate and in tiny portion that came from the guide's Tupperware. In addition, the guide was around 10 minutes late.

We really enjoyed the trip led by Jonathan. He shared information about wine, the local vineyards, St Emillion, and any other topic that came up. He made sure to work around my husband's handicaps due to a stroke, and gave us options during the St. Emilion tour. I would recommend the full day trip, however, the morning trip went by too quickly.

Answer from Jonathan Turban

Thank you so much for your kind review Nancy! When you get a chance could you share it on TripAdvisor too? This would be a great support for our small agency: Thank you and see you again in Bordeaux hopefully :) Jonathan
