a very enjoyable afternoon. Our rep was very informative on places of interest of route to the vineyards. Would reccomend this trip,
Great trip for two novices. We knew very little going into the tour and came out with a great amount of knowledge. Enjoyed the chateaux and St. Emilion tour. Perfect for those on a short trip and limited budget
We trip is a good value - you visit two fantastic wineries, get a very interesting and super informative tour of the facilities and wine cellars, and taste some yummy wine! We tasted two wines at each winery our tour was in the Medoc region. At the first winery our group was split into a french and english tour, and the english tour guide was fantastic. At the second winery, the same guide translated what she said in French into English, and that was sometimes a little cumbersome because she seemed to talk in French forever before doing a quite English translation. We also loved looking out the AC'ed bus at the beautiful countryside.
The tour was very good. Could have done with more english commentary though. Overall, a very good experience. Winetasting was a disappointment, but since we were these for the views and not the wine, the quality of the wine didn't matter to us.
See some fantastic sites and landscape. We visited Clos De Madeleine vineyard and then St Emilion township. Spoke in French and English which helps but can get you confused with what you should be listening to. All in all beautiful!
Good, well organised tour. Entertaining vineyard owner. More freetime in St Emilion would have been good. Worth doing and enjoyable half-day trip. Wine experts will probably not learn anything new.
Wine tour was ok, but guide had to speak in 2 languages for a mixed lingual group, took twice as long as it should have. Better to have had separate language groups as in other tours. Town of St. Emilion was a marvelous choice for 2nd half of tour.
We did the one vineyard and St Emillion city tour. The city was fun. The wine tour was not impressive, having been through countless vineyards and wineries elsewhere, but when in France...
The highlight of this tour was the tour of the church and the town of St. Emillion. The winery location was lovely however the wine wasn't very good. I wish we could have spent more time in the town of St. Emillion as it is a lovely medieval town and worth more time. We were very disappointed with the wine at the winery and wondered if it was because the better wineries are closed in March to big tours Perhaps a smaller group could go to better wineries What made this trip was the visit to the town of St. Emillion and worth seeing if nothing else!
A knowledgeable guide, excellent wines tasted, and good variety from different Bordeaux appellations. Most of the day however was spent on a bus! An excellent way to see the Bordeaux country side, so take a map to clue yourself in on where you are through out the day.
Great tour. We learned a lot and had an enjoyable afternoon.
The trip was interesting, but too much time was spent on explanations on wine production and not enough tasting.
This was a good tour through the region and was very interesting to hear the different processes the winemakers take! Compared to other wine tours it felt a little impersonal probably due to the larger size of the group!
It was a very well organised and informative tour of two vineyards in the Medoc Region. It is a must do for all wine lovers who want to see the inside of a "Chateau". An amazing amount of information was shared by the tour guide and the chateau care takers. Lovely.
The two vineyards we went to were very different. One was really old and had been in the guy's family for years and years, and the second one was an organic one that was very new. My dad and I thoroughly enjoyed both! And my dad is a huge organic guy, so it was a great surprise to learn we were seeing a perfect vineyard for him! Great time.
Lovely place and sights, hence the rating. However, only visited one winery - therefore not really a wine tour!!! St Emillion was beautiful, and we wouldn't have got to see it if not for doing the tour.
It was easy to convert voucher to ticket, easy to hop on bus & take tour, tour very informative.
The tour was great. We ended up doing another one the next day!!! Great value for money!!

I went to St Emilion, and even though we only went to one chateau, the town was really nice! If you really want to go all out for just wine itself, this tour is just a taster. There are better ones out there, but of course they're pricier.
Well organised tour of a Saint Emilion vineyard and the village itself. The length of time was just right for us.
Decent price for what you get, short and sweet, loved St. Emilion!
