Wonderful experience!

I have been on many wine tours in Bordeaux when I have guests in town and this one was the perfect value for your money. It is so much more convienent to have someone drive you to the chateaus and you get the benefit of a great tour guide. Brigitte, our guide, was a delight and was very knowlegeable. The two chateaus we visited in Blaye were lovely and we had a great experience!

I liked the choice of chateau we visited, the guide was nice, gave a lot of interesting information and even a short tasting course. Definitely would recommend to those looking to get the first taste of what Medoc region has to offer.

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.

Great tour!

Great tour, highly recommended. Excellent tour guide. Be warned though- I told them in advance I was vegetarian, and they tried to serve me fish for lunch...so please be explicit with any dietary requirements (it appears that being vegetarian in France has a different meaning to elsewhere!)
