A nice drive through the region. Tour guide was great. We learnt a lot about French wine. We loved the stop at St Emillion.
Great Tour. Guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Interesting and educational wine tasting tours with highly personalised service in a small group situation.
Boris was a wonderful guide and host. He was very familiar with the area and its history. There were a total of 7 guests on our tour which was perfect for this type of location. The tour was well paced and informative. We were given sufficient time for lunch and sightseeing on our own in Saint-Emilion.
Our trip with tour guide Maria was a delight. Maria was very knowledgable about Bordeaux and the surrounding wine regions. We stopped at both a modern winery and a small family run winery as well as having just enough time in St. Emillon to enjoy the town. Highly recommmend going to the tasting at Le Cellier De St. Emillon, owner (from the UK) is eager to share his wines in a fun atmosphere (Maria recommended this). Wonderful having someone else take care of the driving!
I really loved this tour! As someone who has never visited vineyards or learned about the winemaking process, I felt it was as thorough as it needed to be. Additionally, everyone was exceptionally nice and welcoming, and our guide was fantastic.
Excellent value and so much fun. This tour is an entire day of fun times. We rode bicycles all over St. Emilion, had a gourmet lunch and learned about wine, vineyards, history etc. There are a couple of decent sized hills on the ride, but our bikes had gears, so that made it easy. The wine was fabulous and our tour guide was great. He made sure that everyone had a great time on this tour. Highly recommended.
This was the highlight of our 12 day trip. I was a bit nervous at first as my husband and I are "ride around the neighborhood" kind of bikers. It was perfect! A bit difficult in places but I was very happy to say I only walked my bike in one very steep place. It was the highest point of the ride and definitely worth the effort.
Lunch was very good and had lots of fruit, cheese, meat and pasta choices along with 3 bottles of wine and dessert. Good thing there were 9 of us.....the most difficult part of the ride was behind us and we were a happy group from this point. the winery was very informative and well worth the visit. We learned a lot about Bordeaux wines and wine in general. There were several photo ops along the way. The path was mostly paved, very safe and picturesque. Oh, and the wine was Delicious. :)
All in all, a fantastic day!
I recommend this tour to anyone in average to above average physical condition.
Our trip was great. Boris did and awesome job showing and explaining everything for us. We had a people from 4 different countries and he covered us all. it was by far the best tour i have had there ( and this was number 4).
If you love wine and biking, DO NOT miss this adventure! The people who run the tours are professional, well trained and caring. Our tour guide was unbelievalbe. While traveling, he discussed the region as well as wine making and tasting. We learned so much! When we arrived in St - Emilion, we picked up our bikes and spent the day touring the vineyards, riding on country roads, sharing lunch at a French farmhouse, touring one of the best vineyards in the region and, of course, enjoying excellent wine. We ended the day with a tour of St-Emilion. What an amazing medieval town! Do not hesitate to book this tour. You will not be disappointed.
Excellent. we actually ended up having a "private" tour as no one else booked on our date and it was fabulous. Arriving for this tour we were hopelessly lost driving into downtown Bordeaux, but the guide waited for us despite being significantly late, which we really appreciated. The guide was very nice and knowledgeable, the wineries they select for your visit are excellent, and we had plenty of time to explore Saint Emilion on our own. Absolutely recommend.
Loved this tour. We did the half day St Emilion tour. Our guide was lovely and the Chateauxs we went to were very interesting, both quite different to each other. The town of St Emilion is gorgeous and our guide had a wonderful knowledge of the area without boring us to tears. Would highly recommend.
It was a superb tour with lots of wine tastings, personal attention from the guide and a wonderful itenerary.
Enjoyed the trip very much. Tour guide Marie Wallerand is very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Recommend this excellent tour to anyone.
It was a nice entertaining tour and we were well taken care of. The guide had a pretty good knowledge of the regions of St. Emilion and Pomerol and the wineries around in the area. We just visited two wineries in this one-day tour, so if one really wants to know learn more about Bordeaux and its wines, one has to plan for a 3-day tour.
