Highly organised. Reme was friendly and informative, willing to answer questions at any time.
Well worth the money. Tour guide Julie was great. The whole experience was great fun and very informative.
Scenery was fantastic and the 2 Chateaus we visited were top class.
Absolutely loved this trip. It was thrilling to visit the ares where these famous wines are made and then to experience actual chateaus where the wine is produced. We learned so much about the plants and how they are tended to the creation of the wine. We would recommend this to any one: oenophile to amateur such as ourselves.
Wonderful tour. Great if you only can fit in a half day tour. It was fun visiting a try wine producer and finding out about the region and the Medoc wines in general.
This tour was wonderful. We were also lucky because on the day of the tour we had:
(a) excellent weather
(b) an excellent guide: Delphine
(c) in the two Chateaus that we visited we had a chance to be guided by the owners
We also had a wine tasting at a small wine shop at Saint Emilion where we were able to test examples of all the qualified wines. The tour was well organized and paced. Highly recommended indeed.
An excellent trip. Boris was a superb guide and very knowledgable. Good tips on where to eat for lunch too. The afternoon wine tasting in St Emilion was the icing on the cake. Very comfortable transport.
Book with confidence.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this tour! We got there very early to make sure everything was in order and were greeted by extremely friendly staff who assured us that we were definitely good to go. From there, the guide handled everything very well, even all of the little mishaps along the first few minutes of the bike ride. The chateaux were gorgeous, the vineyards were amazingly beautiful with the fall colors, lunch was absolutely delicious, and the wines were very enjoyable we bought two bottles afterward. We took a stroll through the small, medieval town after all of that and then got restaurant and wine bar recommendations on the way home. All around, it was an absolutely delightful excursion and my favorite part of my 2 week trip to France. Even my husband agrees, and he can be a tough guy to please! Bordovino is the best!
Tour was great! Could not have asked for better, Great Job.
Great trip. Guide was well informed, the entire day was informative and totally a pleasure
Excellent tour. Knowlegableand interesting guide.
Great tour, very personable and knowledgeable guide David. He kept the tour moving well and we had a thoroughly enjoyable day along with some nice wine!
We had a lovely experience with our small group and tour guide Marie. She was able to explain the difference in regions and history of the area. The wine tasting was delicious and scenery magnificent.
The trip was fantastic and our guide Fiona was knowledgable and amazing fun. I'd highly recommend this tour experience.

Very enjoyable and informative tour in a small group. The guide was very knowledgeable and hosted the day very well. The tour really makes the most of the time available without feeling rushed. Would recommend to anyone with an interest in wine.
The day was amazing. Remi, the guide, was so knowledgeable about the history of area and the making of wine. He was so proud of his country and it showed. When visiting the different Chateaux's we were the only ones present so the tour was very personal. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting a small group setting with the best host from Bordeaux.
An excellent and very enjoyable day trip. Our guide Matt was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable about the wine growing business and he spoke excellent English. A little more free time in St Emilion would have been helpful. However all in all very good value for money.
It was FANTASTIC. It was worth every penny we paid. But the greatest thanks and appreciation goes to our super guide ISABELLE. She gave us every single information about the vine industry with special emphasis of Bordeaux. She answered all of our questions with patience and displayed amazing in depth knowledge. She was pleasant and handled our small group from different corners of the world very professionnaly. Thank you Isabelle, thank you for making our day. Claudia and Turhan
The old petite town of Saint-Emilion is a must if you are visiting Bordeaux and this tour is the perfect way to do it as it also visits 3 beautiful chateaux wineries as well. Wine tasting is of course included at each winery and optionally at the town of Saint-Emilion as well. The overall tour guide Marion was excellent. Each winery also has its own guide and all of them were excellent. Highly recommended
We had a wonderful day touring this region with our guide who was very knowledgeable of the history of the area, of the growing of the grapes, the wine making process and the differences between the Saint-Emilion and Pomerol appellations. At our first chateaux we had a great tour of the winery and then a very comprehensive wine tasting lesson. Our time in the lovely town of Saint-Emilion was fun with an informative tour, a delicious lunch of Croque Monsieur, followed by an enjoyable wine tasting in a local establishment run by a delightful Irishman. He regaled us with stories and had us taste two wines at a time without telling us the price. We then would pick our favorite and more times than not it would be the less expensive wine. Lesson learned. Finally we went to a chateaux in Pomerol for another tour and wine tasting. It was a thoroughly pleasurable day and well worth the money.
We had a wonderful time on our tour this past Saturday with Boris. He was a fountain of information and energy, with a sincere love for Bordeaux. Our first stop of the day was a small, family-run winery in Pomerol Chateau du Tailhas. We received a tour by the niece of the owner and her ability to share personal stories from when her grandfather and great-grandfather ran the winery made the tour special. The tasting was a bit underwhelming, but still enjoyable. Our next stop was in the village of Saint-Émilion. Before arriving in the village itself, Boris took us on a bit of a driving tour of some of the surrounding vineyards, pointing out some prestigious wineries to better explain the classification system. It was quite helpful, and the scenery was superb. Boris then took us on a short walking tour of the village, pointing out restaurants for lunch as well as sites we might want to visit. We had about 1.5 hours of free time, which afforded my fiancé and I enough time for lunch, a climb of La Tour du Chateau du Roy, and a peek inside the Eglise Collegiale de Saint-Émilion. As a group, we then went to Le Cellier de Saint Emilion, for a wine tasting with Bruno, the owner. Bruno was very generous and had seven wines for us to sample that had very different profiles and prices. It was a great tasting and Bruno was very happy to answer any questions the group had. For our last stop, we left the village and travelled to Chateau de Pressac, which has an impressive history: the Hundred Years War ended there. The views from the Chateau were spectacular, and a reason to come here in and of itself. The tour and tasting were enjoyable, and while we would have loved some free time to just admire the scenery, we were on a bit of a tight schedule. Overall, we had a great time on this tour and highly recommend it. We even considered going on Boriss tour to Medoc the next day!
The Tour guide was fantastic. Her descriptive information on the Bordeaux region and the wineries was very informative and made me appreciate the passion and dedication of the people associated with Bordeaux.
Our tour guide was lovely and very knowledgeable. Our first winery at Pomeral was a delightful traditional winery. We enjoyed our visit there. Arriving at Saint Emillion we visited a wine merchant, the village is full of them. It was an interesting visit and good wines were tasted. We had an hour free time before a walking tour of the village and the church. We caught a quick bite then explored...so much to see...lovely streets and everything so old. The walking tour was interesting and not hurried. We would have liked more free time there really, to relax over a meal and explore the museum and shops. Our last stop out of the village was another winery but it lacked charm and was so very modern and efficient. Wine was very rough. Disappointing. We would have rather had another hour at Saint- Emillion or another winery with character. We did however have a great day and were well looked after by our guide.
Can I suggest a tour to Saint Emillion with less wine tasting and more time in the village.Thank you!
Great tour! Really felt as if we were able to see things we wouldn't have known to do without the guidance of our wonderful tour guide. Completely worth it!
