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).
This was a great tour. We were booked with a private company instead of the tourism office usual tour. So was in a minivan instead of bus. Great wineries. Well organised. And our guide Moris was just great. So happy he was our first tour as he basically explained to us how the wine classification wk
Convenient and well organized day trip
Doing what: Bordeaux Vineyards Wine Tasting Half-Day Trip
The tour was ok. We went to two prestigious wineries and a small one. Lunch was great. Typical French food. Our tour guide was knowledgeable. Only down thing was the tour was in two language and I felt that some it was wasted saying same things in two language.
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.
The morning session on the history of wine in Bordeaux was very good. The wine history museum was interesting and well presented. We also walked through an interesting part of Bordeaux that I may not have otherwise done. It was nice that it was the annual wine and jazz day with street markets along the way. The guide was very good. The morning ended with a lovely lunch in a local restaurant. I didn't find the afternoon visit to two vineyards so interesting but achieved the aim of seeing some of the countryside. The afternoon program and information were good, but not something I'm really interested in. It was all well organised.
Doing what: Bordeaux Wine Day Trip
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.
EXCELLENT!!!! VERY CLASSY and upscale and informative...very VERY clean and comfortable bus and interesting day!
Doing what: Bordeaux Wine and Culinary Tour
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.
Our tour guide was terrific...but, the town of Pauillac was a disappointment...and our tour was on Sunday which they did not warn us that most of the wineries are closed so we felt like we had "left-overs"...the van was very nice and clean...we would recommend the tour during the weekdays :}
Really nice! The cheese selection was awesome! Wines were great with good talk about the Bordeaux region wine making. Nice beginning to an evening in Bordeaux
This was a fantastic excursion as St Emillion is a picture perfect medieval town. The drive from Bordeaux was a beautiful drive through their wine country and its' Chateaus. This was worth every penny.
Boris, our guide was very informative about the Medoc and very accommodating. We went to three very different wineries and enjoyed them all. Even though we booked just one day Boris arranged for us to visit another winery the next day as well as a wine shop is Saint-Emillion.
Enjoyed the trip very much. Tour guide Marie Wallerand is very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Recommend this excellent tour to anyone.
