First, and most importantly, François was a terrific guide. He was friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining, and I highly recommend him as a tour guide. The two locations selected for the tour were very interesting, and it was wonderful to meet the owner of Chateau Lamarque, in her living room while tasting her excellent wines. The Gruaud-Larose tour was very comprehensive, and again, the selection of wines for tasting and the cheese/charcuterie offered was excellent. I would love to take the St-Emilion tour next time.

We had a lovely day with our tour guide. We toured the Medoc region and had a tasting at two different chateaux. Our guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant and gave us excellent restaurant recommendations in Bordeaux. The tour was fun and relaxed and very informative!

My family and I truly enjoyed this trip. The tour of 2 chateaux in the south of France and the tour of St-Emilion was great. We found the information on wines and vineyards fascinating and informative. The wine tasting and the food tray of cheeses and cold cuts was very delicious. I now appreciate a glass of wine and do want to learn more on the topic and do want to return to the south of France to experience more of the same. The tour guide was very personable and took the time to explain and answer queries and was a great part of the reason why the tour and the day was very satisfactory.

Excellent tour - Francois the driver and guide was knowledgeable, had excellent English and was entertaining to boot. The tour was a great mix of sightseeing, learning and tasting/ creating. Very pleased. Only constructive feedback would be that we were not aware the tour was not run by viator, so there was some confusion when we were picked up. A notification about that when booking would be useful (I.e. the name of the tour company).

The tour was very well organized and the tour guides were very knowledgeable about the wine region and wine tasting in particular. The vineyards we visited were all completely different and offered a very unique view of the region. The tour of St-Emilion was also very interesting. We would definitely recommend this tour.
