My Review

We were very fortunate in that we were the only couple on the safari, and so got a luxurious 4x4 to ourselves. Driver was really friendly. Had a fantastic morning. Realised I am a better snow-skier than sand-boarder. We went in January, when it wasn't too hot. Walking back up the dunes is hard work, so wouldn't fancy it so much in the summer heat! Definitely recommend though.

Bordeaux Wine Day Trip

My Review
In general an excellent day out a worthwhile trip, and very good value for money especially considering the lunchtime meal. My only criticism I've seen this mentioned in other reviews was that the tour was conducted in both French and English. This means quite a lot of standing around. Not so bad in the afternooons at the Chateaux, as we could wander about during the French explanations, but the morning museum trip passed very slowly... Would have been nice to split the groups. Our morning consisted of a visit to the wine museum, followed by a walking tour of the Wine Merchant district. An excellent lunch was provided at a Fromagerie if you are a cheeseoholic you should probably seek professional help after devouring their cheese cave if you are fromageophobic like my girlfriend, they still do a decent main course and dessert. After lunch, we joined up with the half-day tour, so the number of people doubled. The chateaux visits are almost luck-of-the-draw. The first one pretty as it was we spent most of our time in a large shed. The second chateau, in contrast, was magnificent. Summary - Plenty of wine tasting I believe we sampled 6 - Opportunity for shopping at each stop - Learn about the wine making process and the region - Friendly tour guide, and helpful chateaux guides
