This was defintiely value for money however tour guide didn't sit with the group for lunch, instead choosing to eat on her own at the restaurant. There was no check at the beginning to ensure all participants had arrived so there was confusion about whether there were people missing from the tour. The afternoon tour was too big (an entire coach worth of people). The tour guide didn't check if everyone was on board the bus before leaving Saint Emillion and 2 girls were nearly left behind (we had to yell for the bus to stop). They were only running about 2 mins late. The tour guide just kept saying 'are you sure you're all on the right bus'. The wine tasting was unfortunately a bit boring - the winery owner explained in great detail every aspect of wine making so we stood in the heat for about 30-45mins while he explained in French and the tour guide then translated into English. Unfortunately the guide was not able to translate everything as she was not sure how to translate some words into English. Unfortunately i would not recommend this tour despite the value for money. There were just too many people on this tour for it to be enjoyable and the tour guide was not very personable.
Highly enjoyable. Was something 'a bit different' we decided to do and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The tour guide was knowledgeable and took us to see the major sights and explained quirky facts about the city that we wouldn't have known had we not done this tour.
