Excellent tour guide and very knowledgeable personnel at the chateaux. A great opportunity for tasting some of the higher end priced wines.

We learnt a lot about the region and appellations. The small group meant that we could ask more questions and we got to taste and blend wines which was fantastic. The visit to the wineries was good and also very interesting to learn about the wine-making process.

It was a very fun and informative tour. Our guide, Marion, was very knowledgeable and attentive towards us during the trip. We liked that she also showed us attractions in Bordeaux itself and not only the vineyards and chateaux. Overall, it was a great tour and a nice way to spend the day.

The guide was great, very dedicated to his job and we had a lovely day! The wineries were lovely and the people very friendly, saw some beautiful scenery. It was very easy to do the booking in the Iphone and just show the voucher rather than having to print it off - I would definitely recommend this trip.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better May 2015

The Medoc tour we took via aviator from Bordeaux was underwhelming. The tour operator did did seem very organized and the chateau's we visited were not as grand as I was expecting. A positive note is that both wineries staffed professional, knowledgeable wine experts. Our guide talked way too much.
