This was a thoroughly enjoyable tour. We had great guides explaining the history and the 'science' of wine making. To add to that there was a lovely variety of friendly people on the tour. The town of ST Emilion was incredibly picturesque. I would thoroughly recommend this tour.
We have taken this tour before but did it again with our friends who had not been. The guide at the first Chateau was very knowledgeable and interesting although she had a challenge curtailing some of the behaviours of other party members who continuously "clicked" and chattered over her. Unfortunately our tour of the second Chateau was disappointing for us this time as the usual guide was preparing lunch and his replacement didn't speak English so our main tour guide had to interpret and translate. However the lunch provided was as good as we remembered and our friends enjoyed their experience, it was just us who were a little disappointed in comparison to our last visit where we enjoyed the attention of our previous host through the entire tour and all through lunch.
Wonderful way to spend a day with a knowledgable tour guide and welcoming Chateaus. The lunch we were served at HautSarpe was fantastic!
Another excellent tour, St. Emilion was amazing and lunch at Chateu Haute Sarpe was superb.
Excellent day, the wine tours are both interesting and delicious, the coach was comfortable, the guide excellent and very helpful with a lovely tour of the town and church. The lunch was fantastic, highly recommended.
Fabulous trip. Very interesting. Yummy lunch with wine. Love St Emilion. Would do it again.
one word- FABULOUS!! we were treated to a "gourmet" rustic wine makers luncheon at the chateau. The tour was very informative, and we were made to feel like we had been friends of the winemaker forever. DO NOT miss this tour when in Bordeaux- well worth close to the 100 euro's
th whole trip was a great experiance ,our guide was very informative. I would recomend this trip to anyone not just for the wine tasting but what goes into making a grand cru wine and to learn about the history of Saint-Emilion and the area .

Superb, is the only word that best describes the perfect relaxing day out in St Emilion the guide was friendly and knowledgeable the 2 vineyards we visited were extremely interesting, the first due to age the 2nd likewise but the marketing guy was the most friendly funny and interesting, he made the tour "great" the lunch provided was equally one of the best meals I ate in Bordeaux during my break. this tour in my opinion was the best value, I took 2 others which were dearer and not of this quality, I would definitely book again when I return to Bordeaux.
Excellent day. Wineries first class, lunch very pleasant and the village of Saint-Emilion a very nice surprise exceeding expectations.
An excellent day made extra special by an informative and well spoken guide. Both chataeux visited provided us with a well rounded insight into the making of wine, its grading and subesquent cost. That was the only "sad" part. Had a lovely buffet lunch at the second chateau where the owner entertained us with a wry sense of humour, much appreciated by me. I would recommend this tour to anyone making their first visit to the St Emilion region.
Nice trip, nice guide, visited good vineyards and had a good lunch! Be prepared to get a 5050 FrenchEnglish guide, meaning that heshe will talk in French first and then in English. It worked out ok! We printed out the voucher the last minute and found out that we were supposed to call the tourist office the day before the trip. Everything turned out ok even though we didn't do it, so I dont quite get why we were supposed to do so. Overall, an interesting and nice day trip!
My husband and I had a wonderful time. The visit to the wineries was well planned in terms of timing. The Guide was knowledgeable and informative.
This was one of the highlights of our time in Bordeaux. It was a lovely day and the lunch was just beautiful. The winery visits were fun and informative and our guide was professional. We dont usually go on large coach tours but this one was well worth it. Great Value.
