A great (but long) day! Our guide Isabelle was very knowledgeable, and the Chateaux visited all very different even down to the wine making. The first Chateau was disappointing as the very first wine offered for tasting was sour as it had been sitting in an open bottle for lord knows how long. The susequent Chateaux (Lynch Bages and Desmiral) made up for it however.
The meeting point was easy to find and the guide on time. Word of advice - the tour is likely to run over time simply because there is a lot of ground to cover.
Awesome Trip. Isabelle was very knowledgable. We enjoyed the chateaus and learned a lot along the way. Highly recommended.
Boris, our guide was very informative about the Medoc and very accommodating. We went to three very different wineries and enjoyed them all. Even though we booked just one day Boris arranged for us to visit another winery the next day as well as a wine shop is Saint-Emillion.
This was an exceptional tour and enjoyed the drive through the country side and extra time for lunch. The three wineries/castels were amazing. This trip was well planned our for tourists.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and can recommend it to anybody visiting the area, interested in the art of producing some exceptional wines. Sarah our guide was most knowledgable, friendly and helpful.
We visited 3 wineries with extensive tours and wine tasting, with a break for lunch. What impressed us most was the fact that this wasn't a tour with a view of selling us wine, rather an educational experience.
We had a wonderful tour. Our guide waist extremely knowledgeable about the wine industry he made the tour kex exceptional
Excellent tour with both wineries providing thorough presentations and ample sampling. The sampling at the The Winery and the food were top class. Tour is great value for money. The only disappointment was that the advert on Viator detailed a gift of a wine bottle stopper for each person which was not provided at the end of the tour.
Both wine trips were excellent. Our guide Marie was wonderful and I feel we were lucky to have her for 2 days. I recommend the wine tours to everyone.
This was a great day tour which covered several major areas of the Medoc and the first stop and rapid lesson in Medoc wines was excellent as an introduction. Subsequent stops at vineyards and tastings were really good. The lunch stop at Puillac was OK but less so if you wanted a snack rather than a restaurant meal as there was only a small bakery which had almost run out of food and it was Sunday so no supermarket/store was open - just seaside restaurants. We had a great day and enjoyed the background information and professionalism of our guide Sarah.
It's a shame the chateaux wouldn't ship a crate back home. I'd have had several!
We had such a fantastic time and learned so much about Medoc. Our guide Sarah was very knowledgeable about the wine region, the history of Bordeaux and made our trip all around wonderful....thank you
This was a great tour! We went to a place where we had tasting of different wines then onto two wineries, which included a tasting and tours of that specific winery. I loved that we chose the small group option b/c there were actually only 4 in our group and we got special attention and all our questions answered. Our guide was super sweet, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable! She made the ride fun! It is totally worth it and I would definitely recommend it!
Our guides were terrific and we learned a lot. The only negative: we were promised 3 classified growth visits, but we visited two classified growths and one unclassified.
This was a great tour. We were booked with a private company instead of the tourism office usual tour. So was in a minivan instead of bus. Great wineries. Well organised. And our guide Moris was just great. So happy he was our first tour as he basically explained to us how the wine classification wk
Our tour guide was terrific...but, the town of Pauillac was a disappointment...and our tour was on Sunday which they did not warn us that most of the wineries are closed so we felt like we had "left-overs"...the van was very nice and clean...we would recommend the tour during the weekdays :}
