Excellent tour from Ophorus.
Our guide, Marion, was very knowledgeable, lucid and very happy to answer all the questions that we had.
Both my wife and I enjoyed the tour and hope to return some day soon.
Our guide David was the main reason for the rating. His history and experience in the wine industry made the driving interesting as we went through the growing areas. The chosen wineries were distinct and very interesting. The guides at the sites answerred all questions and we left as quasi-experts.
St. Emilion is charming and full of wine shops.
Great tour. Pierre was very knowledgeable, professional and charismatic. St Emillion region is just beautiful. Half day was plenty of time to appreciate a couple of chateau's and the village. Very friendly small group from all over. Highly recommend the tour company.
Very informative tour with 2 great but different chateau's visited with tasting and tours of their processing facilities. History of the two chateau's and the local wine region was comprehensive.
Stephane, our driver/guide also gave us a short guided walking tour of the beautiful medieval village of St Emilion
A perfect day out! We took part in the Saint Emilion tour. Astrid, our guide made the tour very entertaining, fun and highly educational. The wine making and tasting at a chateaux was really enjoyable as we also met with the owner. We listened to his stories and really added to the personal history of this family and wine heritage. The final leg of the tour to the town of Saint Emilion is simply breath-taking: historical, beautiful, interesting and cultural. If you travel to Bordeaux, this tour is a must, as you will be immersered in the history and culture of this region. A heartfelt thanks to Astrid for our long-lasting memories and pictures of this wonderful day!
This was an amazing tour! Remi and Claire were our guides and they were great fun people. The ride is great passing by beautiful chatous and breath taking landscapes... The ride isnt hard to anyone can do it. Wine tasting was really good, and lunch was just wow!!
I highly recommend to take this tour
Very comfortable transport. Great small group. Stunning vineyards and very open and informative guides at each. The wines were very tasty and learning about each wine and its region was fantastic. I'd do it again tomorrow. Fantastic guides were a definite bonus.
This tour was the perfect way to spend a sunny, spring afternoon in the beautiful area around St Emilion. We visited two beautiful vineyards, we tasted some great wines and some delicious cheese. Claire the main guide and both the guides at the the vineyards were all charming and very informative, we also met the owner of the first vineyard who was very welcoming to our group. We would certainly recommend this tour.
Excellent tour. Lunch was a delicious 4courses under the shade of a beautiful tree in the chateau gardens. Cycling fun, wine yum! Our guide Remi was most friendly and knowledgable. Highly recommended.
Our tour guide Julie was lovely. It was a lovely day out and I learnt a lot about the wine and the region.
This tour is not one to miss. My favorite was the St Emilion tour. If you are ever in the region it's a must!!
Guide Julia was lovely. Informative and talkative when needed, very responsive to questions. Assisted us in getting our wine sent home so we didn't need to transport.
Isabel was a wonderful guide, knowledgeable, personable,and she loved the area. Wish the day,had been longer. Our traveling companions were delightful as well. Weather was great too. We were impressed with Bordeaux and wish we had had the opportunity to spend more time and tour the city as well. Thank you, Isabel, for making our day there so special!
Fantastic - we loved it.
Great fun for wine connoisseurs and novices alike. Our very knowledgable guide, Remy, was excellent as were the guides at each of the chateaus we visited.
Fantastic, very interesting, great quide! would love to go again!
Excelent and knowledgeable guide Isabelle.
good guides, excellent chateaus
Alain was a marvelous guide and offered excellent information on the countryside, history and vineyards. We wrere met on time and deposited back as promised and had a fine day in between.
This was a fantastic tour, a great way to see the vineyards surrounding St-Emilion! My wife and I were part of a small group of casual riders of varying standards so our very professional and informative guide kept the pace at a gentle speed so that everyone was able to stay together and enjoy the great scenery!
The total distance cycled was 20 kilometres, 12 in the morning and 8 in the afternoon. It should be mentioned that there are a number of hills on this riding tour! Some of the hills are quite easy, several may require more effort to master if you're only a very occasional rider.
After a 45 minute drive from Bordeaux we cycled from St-Emilion to a local family-owned and managed Château. Here we were given a private tour of their operations then provided a fantastic lunch overlooking the vines which included several bottles of the local Château vintages.
After lunch we cycled back to St-Emilion where we were given a tour of the village. We were then transported to another nearby commercially-run winery for another tour and some wine tasting.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour which was a present from our children. We learnt a great deal about the local Chateaus as well as the history of St-Emilion and the region from our guide who really took great care of us. Highly recommended!
We enjoyed everything about this tour. The chateau's were beautiful, the wine tasting lesson was fun, wines were great, and St. Emilion was beautiful. We loved the small group and the friendly staff/tour guide. Thank you for new memories.
A bit pricy compared to other wine tasting tour in Bordeaux but we found it worth paying an extra. Very knowledgeable and friendly guide took us to visit a number of vineyards and chateau and and a small village of St Emillion. Wine tasting in 3 different places, which was a great opportunity for us to try different age and taste of Bordeaux wine. 6 participants in total from different areas of this planet and we all became good friends by the time this tour was completed. We would definitely recommend this tour to make the most of the day in Bordeaux.
Isabelle was the best!! She was so informative on the history, the terroir and everything about wine in this beautiful region! Isabelle was very congenial and a lovely guide who looked after every detail including an additional wine tasting at a St. Emillion wine shop. We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful day trip. Thank you! Isabelle. You are first class!
Very enjoyable day tasting merlot based wines with a personable and knowledgable guide (Christophe). Even in the rain St Emilion was a beautiful town. At Chateau Sales, one of the owners, who happened to be on site, approached us and introduced himself. It was a pleasure to meet a man who had high respect for the land and the vines that had been in his family's hands for many generations. Highly recommended tour.
The tour was fantastic and we learnt a great deal from our extremely knowledgable tour guide Isobelle. Saint-Emilion was beautiful, and it was there we ordered wine from 'Bordeaux-Classique' which arrived the day after we got home! The only negative we had was the visits to the wine estates should have been the other way round as we found the one in the morning to be the better one so we were slightly disappointed by the one in the afternoon.
