It was a great afternoon, even if we are not wine experts we enjoyed the experience. The guide was very nice, speaking a good English. 100% recommended!

An Amazing Time in the Medoc

Our guide, Quentin, exemplified the perfect wine tour host. Knowledgeable, funny, and personable, Quentin led us through a lovely day of tasting. His expertise softened the tannins of a usual wine tour, and we received a First Growth experience for a table wine price! His ability to communicate a love for wine—whether to a wine novice or a Master Somm—is unparalleled. I cannot recommend this tour enough.

As my main man Larry David would say "Pretaay pretay pretay good!" Perhaps I would rate the Fun factor to the max if we got to smash grapes like they did in an I Love Lucy episode, but I digress, the trip was classy AF, the tour guide/driver was very knowledgeable and caring with our inquiries, sorry I forgot his name but the driver was magnificent AF, his experience driving around the backroads of Medoc was awesome, made us feel like we were on a French safari! The barrell rooms were so monumental and the multimedia tools they utilized was astounding. This is a professional crew that also knows how to have fun. Overall great tour, and would do it all over if I only could!

Amazing tour!!

It was a small group when I joined. I like wine but I had no idea actually. The guide explained a lot of information about the wine and winery in Bordeaux from the baby steps. His explanation was so nice. Also, I asked everything I felt curious although it sounds very stupid, the guide answered well and kindly to all our questions. This tour is very useful because you can get information about wine. and it was fun, you can taste wine and some food for wine. we visited two wineries, we can try over two kinds of wine on both. it would be good if I can try upper-level wine in that winery we visited. but considering price, it was reasonable. overall, it was the fun, tasty, good, useful tour!

The tour was a great introduction to the wines of Bordeaux. Our guide, Hugo, was very helpful and gave lots of great information and was always willing to answer questions. Lunch was incredible and seeing and visiting the wineries was wonderful. The trip was laid-back and relaxing. I highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to learn about Bordeaux wines and see some of the countryside.

i had a perfect trip to st.émilion! riding a bike to the village was the best way to enjoy beautiful ambiance. and our guide Vincent was really good in English and had lots of knowledge about the wine and village! So it was a very fruitful tour, learning lots of good things about wine and st.emilion. the lunch was really good too! its a little bit expensive but i can guarantee you that it will be the best choice to look around the village. it worth the money!!
