Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
The climb to the top of the Dune du Pyla isn't easy, but the views from the top are well worth the effort! Combining this with oyster and wine tasting is a perfect way to experience the highlights of Aquitaine.

What You Can Expect
We loved this day. The sandhills are immense, like going up Uluru in the Northern Territory of Australia. The view from the top over the Atlantic was mind-blowing; so beautiful. Next came the oyster tasting, washed down with a crisp white. The picnic lunch, wine tasting, lovely guide - superb
We love the combination of visiting Arcachon with Oyster Tasting and wine tasting at Medoc region! Very good mix of exercise and good food and wine!
very enjoyable with a lovely guide. We had a lovely day.
We met our guide, Stephane, at the Bordovino office in Bordeaux and started our adventure. Our small group of eight travelers quickly bonded and had a delightful day. The dune climb was a bit challenging but we were rewarded with a spectacular view and a refreshment break of fresh oysters and a crisp, dry white wine. After lunch, Stephane, switched our focus to wine tastings at Chateau Chasse Spleen and Chateau Gruaud La Rose, the latter of which was a gorgeous property. Stephane was well versed in his extensive knowledge of wines and the rich history of the region. He also helped us assemble a selection of wines for shipment back to the States. In addition to the wines we purchased at the Chateaux, Bordovino has a large selection available at their office and, if you are shipping out of the area, you can avoid the value added tax. A great day overall!
I really like our tour guides. They are very humble and tell us everything about our tour in Bordeaux.
Tour gudes were great with good English. Dune du Pila was a humbling climb with the most gorgeous views over the Arcachon basin and the Atlantic. Enjoyed oysters at an ancient fishing harbor. You don't really see Arcachon itself but the other sites were great. Back into Bordeaux to pick up more people to go to the Medoc wine tours which were lovely. A lot of driving and picnic lunch in their office was mediocre and sounded more inviting than it actually was
Comfortable transport, knowledgeable guides / drivers. Recommend this trip for anyone.
The trip was fantastic value for money and a great way of exploring the region. The trip to the Dune du Pilat was definitely a highlight and the view was amazing. The trip to Medoc in the afternoon provided a great introduction to wine making and the guides were very knowledgeable and very keen to answer questions.
We loved the experience and content. Kevin was a great tour guide and we highly recommend him. Only recommendation relates to the van - morning van was good, but we got changed in the afternoon to a van that did not have A/C in the back and it was very hot (and after some wine and with twisty roads it was not good). Also, if the guide could have their commentary amplified when in the van - hard to impossible to hear in the back. Overall, good day - would have been a 5 star if we had A/C in the afternoon van.
