Edinburgh, United Kingdom
This was a wonderful trip! The company was excellent and we all loved our tour guide, Sarah! I am so glad I took this trip; if not I would have missed a fab experience, seeing the Highlands and all its beauty! It was a worthwhile trip and I am so glad I booked it your company.
The Wine and Cheese Introduction was the best I have ever had, and I have done quite a few of these. I am not exactly a novice to wine but I wanted to learn more about Bordeaux wines and that I did. In fact Brigitte conducted such a fabulous "class" that I commented to her that this was the most comprehensive and informative wine tasting I have ever done. Brigitte herself is super knowledgeable of her region and its wines and imparted this information to us in such a manner that was easy to understand and at the same time exciting.
The wine shop where she held the class was filled with a wonderful selection of regional wines and had a fabulous cheese room in the basement. We got to try as many of the cheeses as we wanted to; I fell in love with one of the cheeses and asked the owner where I could get it and he was so gracious; he actually went to the cheese room and cut a piece of the cheese and gave it to me. This event was definitely great value for money and exceeded my expectations on every level.
I enjoyed my time in Bordeaux and I have already made plans to return in the Spring.
