It was an excellent tour. We got more than we expected. The knowledge of the wine process, three tastings in different vineyards, a good three course meal with two glasses of wine, great art. A what really rounded things off was that the guide was so pleasant.
The tour was interesting and informative with the bi-lingual guide excellent. Very good value for money. Three excellent choices of vineyards to visit and a splendid lunch.
We had only one day in Bordeaux and had booked this tour ahead of time. I'm so glad we did! The first chateau struck us as a bit odd, like the inmates had taken over the asylum, but it was pleasant, informative, and the wine we tasted was very nice. The other two were impressive and elegant. The lunch we enjoyed near Chateau Lynche Bage was very satisfactory and fun. Over that meal our table enjoyed two bottles of wine, one which sold across the street for 83 euros. We enjoy wine but do not consider ourselves experts or even good amateurs, but the ambiance, information, chateaus, meal, and wine we enjoyed was very special! At the end of the day we weren't exhausted, stuffed, starved or drunk, we were pleased and happy, and ready to enjoy a nice evening in Bordeaux. The tour was well worth the price and made for a memorable day. Thanks to our chateau tour guides, and everyone at the Bordeaux office of tourism.
Our guide knew both the art and the wine very well and helped the visitors understand. I have recommended this tour to my friends.
It was a great day and the guide contributed to it very much.
It was a great day--ON these wine excursions it would be nice to have a wider variety of wine tastings. More wineries and within each winery more wine tasting options. Thanks!
It was a very good trip with a great overview of the wine. Our guide was excellent and she spoke very good English. The whole day was a lot of fun.
I enjoyed the tour overall with a small group of ten, though initially disappointed with tasting coming from a neighbor of Sonoma/Napa in California with the exception of the included lunch where we had bottles to share, it was only one tasting at the other two wineries. But I did particularly enjoy seeing the changing of wine from barrel to barrel by hand and the beautiful chateau, and seeing oversized paintings by an American artist within the special spaces to accommodate them. The excellent lunch at one winery Barge with one very good red, and an excellent red made it worth the money. Only wished we had more time there to visit the shop and take in the scenery a little bit longer after the lunch! The chateaus/winery were more impressive than the art they hold, but this is a good way to see the wine country if you had one day in Bordeaux. To add, the tour guide was great in also pointing out and commenting on the significant and historical sites within the town as we passed, and the tour bus was comfortable.
I loved the first half of the day, in particular the tour of Chateau d'Arsac and the modern art there was wonderful. Lunch was quite nice too. I would have enjoyed to try more than one wine at each place, to really appreciate the different types vintages.
I would not recomend this tour for anybody. Vines were awful, the worth Bordeaux I ever tried. Scenary was nice though and art was OK. Truth is that vinaries do not need tourist there, their vine is already sold in advance. That's why they do not care and give us the worth vine they have. Better go to Vine Bar for tasting.
