A great tour of two vineyards in the Médoc region of Bordeaux, with wine tastings and a great guide Brigitte. Such a great value for the price!

Wonderful tour of two different vineyards in Bordeaux Entre Deux Mers wine region. Our guide spoke english and was very accommodating to our different French language levels. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the exact processes of wine making from picking the grapes to the precise way to taste a small glass. She went into great depth about the fermentation process and the science behind making a good Bordeaux wine. I would definitely recommend this tour. A wonderful drive through the wine region in a comfortable coach bus and a perfect amount of time to see a bit of Bordeaux before the tour started and have a nice dinner after the tour ended.

I followed up my walking tour in the morning with a trip out to the wineries with guide Laurence. Very knowledgeable on wine and the area. We toured to wineries in the region one looking at whites and the second held a red wine talk and tasting. A good way to get a taste of the region if you only have a litlle time.

We were lucky enough to visit two chateaux in the Bordeaux region Entre Deux Mers. We tasted two wines at each winery, 2 dry whites, 1 sweet white and a tasty red. The guide and winery representatives were very informative and made the tours interesting and fun. We would highly recommend!

Excellent tour guide and the wineries were not bad at all. This trip is definitely not to get tipsy since the wine is limited but its a great way to see Medoc with limited time. You can always buy a few bottles from each Chateau bring them back to the park by the tour center and enjoy it with your significant other. I highly recommend this tour.
