Outstanding Customer Service
Jamie Liebold 06/25/2023
The tour was wonderful, but the outstanding customer service made it truly remarkable. I went on this tour with two friends and our train was delayed, making us arrive about two hours late. Nevertheless, the tourism center was incredibly helpful in getting us the best value for the time we were there. Most other places would likely take our money and leave us empty handed. This tour was wonderful, and the staff is well prepared for the worst-case-scenario.

Not the best of
Michael & Beth Trevino 06/15/2023
First of all, I would not recommend this tour to anyone. The booking process was easy enough but the “Chateaus” (I use this word loosely as they looked more like warehouses) were not what I expected. We did buy a few bottles of wine at the second winery, Chateau Reaut, but the first and the third were not worth the visit. I was expecting best of wine making, not best bio or best of whatever. We thought perhaps it was just us, but nobody on our tour bought wine at either the first or third “Chateaus”. In fact, the third was so bad we noticed that most people in our group poured out their tastings after one sip rather than drink them. I rate this a two star experience only because of Chateau Reaut. The lunch was good, the wines were worth the time. We came to Bordeaux to experience good wines; your tour did not deliver this.

Dear Miss Trevino, It is with regret that we read your review. We have noticed your feedback about the visit and thank you for it. In a quality concern, we sent your impressions to the wine estate to improve the quality of this wine tour in the futur. Best regards, Tourist Office Team
Excellent tour
Deborah 10/25/2019
This was a fantastic tour from the booking all the way through to the drop off return. Laurence was our tour guide and she was friendly, considerate and fun. We visited three chateaux - all different. The visits were not rushed we had a talk and tour at each and plenty of time to taste their wines. There was no hard sell at all. The lunch was more than we expected with three courses and wines to sample with each course in addition to the tasting. To cover three very different wines areas i Bordeaux there was quite a bit of travel on the bus but it was comfortable, a small group and the scenery was delightful. Highly recommend
Day out in the Medoc
Kenneth Millsteed 07/11/2019
We visited 3 wineries in the Medoc region on our 'Best Of' tour. The wineries featured beautiful gardens, diverse architecture and of course great wine. The representatives who managed our visit at each of the wineries were very professional and welcoming. The presentations on the history and operation of the wineries was very interesting and surprisingly diverse with insights to the various issues and challenges in managing the business. Our tour guide and the driver were intent on providing a memorable day and were very much appreciated by the participants. The only issue was a general issue in touring in France, that is a lack of catering for vegetarians. A lunch was included and was fine for non vegetarians, but a vegetarian salad was a challenge. Please ask at booking if there are dietary needs. Very much enjoyed the day and recommend this tour.
