Isabelle was a great guide giving us a wealth of information non stop from the time we boarded the vehicle until we made our farewells. A nice variety of vineyards and a great education.

We had an excellent tour guide with Monica. She was very knowledgable, happy to answer questions and spoke excellent English. The chateaux we visited were varied both in terms of scale and modernity so you get the opportunity to see a variety of producers. Highly recommended.

GUIDE WAS PERFECT. FIRST 2 VINEYARDS WERE OUTSTANDING...THE LAST WAS LIKE
A HOSPITAL, VERY STERILE, I BELIEVE IT WAS OWNED BY THE BIC FAMILY. I LOVED THE
BEAUTIFUL, MORE INTIMATE CHATEAU VINEYARD, I BELIEVE IT WAS LA SALLE.
ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS AND THE OWNER GREETED US!

Absolutely loved this trip. It was thrilling to visit the ares where these famous wines are made and then to experience actual chateaus where the wine is produced. We learned so much about the plants and how they are tended to the creation of the wine. We would recommend this to any one: oenophile to amateur such as ourselves.

This tour was wonderful. We were also lucky because on the day of the tour we had:
(a) excellent weather
(b) an excellent guide: Delphine
(c) in the two Chateaus that we visited we had a chance to be guided by the owners
We also had a wine tasting at a small wine shop at Saint Emilion where we were able to test examples of all the qualified wines. The tour was well organized and paced. Highly recommended indeed.

An excellent trip. Boris was a superb guide and very knowledgable. Good tips on where to eat for lunch too. The afternoon wine tasting in St Emilion was the icing on the cake. Very comfortable transport.

Book with confidence.

An excellent and very enjoyable day trip. Our guide Matt was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable about the wine growing business and he spoke excellent English. A little more free time in St Emilion would have been helpful. However all in all very good value for money.

It was FANTASTIC. It was worth every penny we paid. But the greatest thanks and appreciation goes to our super guide ISABELLE. She gave us every single information about the vine industry with special emphasis of Bordeaux. She answered all of our questions with patience and displayed amazing in depth knowledge. She was pleasant and handled our small group from different corners of the world very professionnaly. Thank you Isabelle, thank you for making our day. Claudia and Turhan

The old petite town of Saint-Emilion is a must if you are visiting Bordeaux and this tour is the perfect way to do it as it also visits 3 beautiful chateaux wineries as well. Wine tasting is of course included at each winery and optionally at the town of Saint-Emilion as well. The overall tour guide Marion was excellent. Each winery also has its own guide and all of them were excellent. Highly recommended

We had a wonderful day touring this region with our guide who was very knowledgeable of the history of the area, of the growing of the grapes, the wine making process and the differences between the Saint-Emilion and Pomerol appellations. At our first chateaux we had a great tour of the winery and then a very comprehensive wine tasting lesson. Our time in the lovely town of Saint-Emilion was fun with an informative tour, a delicious lunch of Croque Monsieur, followed by an enjoyable wine tasting in a local establishment run by a delightful Irishman. He regaled us with stories and had us taste two wines at a time without telling us the price. We then would pick our favorite and more times than not it would be the less expensive wine. Lesson learned. Finally we went to a chateaux in Pomerol for another tour and wine tasting. It was a thoroughly pleasurable day and well worth the money.

We had a wonderful time on our tour this past Saturday with Boris. He was a fountain of information and energy, with a sincere love for Bordeaux. Our first stop of the day was a small, family-run winery in Pomerol Chateau du Tailhas. We received a tour by the niece of the owner and her ability to share personal stories from when her grandfather and great-grandfather ran the winery made the tour special. The tasting was a bit underwhelming, but still enjoyable. Our next stop was in the village of Saint-Émilion. Before arriving in the village itself, Boris took us on a bit of a driving tour of some of the surrounding vineyards, pointing out some prestigious wineries to better explain the classification system. It was quite helpful, and the scenery was superb. Boris then took us on a short walking tour of the village, pointing out restaurants for lunch as well as sites we might want to visit. We had about 1.5 hours of free time, which afforded my fiancé and I enough time for lunch, a climb of La Tour du Chateau du Roy, and a peek inside the Eglise Collegiale de Saint-Émilion. As a group, we then went to Le Cellier de Saint Emilion, for a wine tasting with Bruno, the owner. Bruno was very generous and had seven wines for us to sample that had very different profiles and prices. It was a great tasting and Bruno was very happy to answer any questions the group had. For our last stop, we left the village and travelled to Chateau de Pressac, which has an impressive history: the Hundred Years War ended there. The views from the Chateau were spectacular, and a reason to come here in and of itself. The tour and tasting were enjoyable, and while we would have loved some free time to just admire the scenery, we were on a bit of a tight schedule. Overall, we had a great time on this tour and highly recommend it. We even considered going on Boriss tour to Medoc the next day!

Our tour guide was lovely and very knowledgeable. Our first winery at Pomeral was a delightful traditional winery. We enjoyed our visit there. Arriving at Saint Emillion we visited a wine merchant, the village is full of them. It was an interesting visit and good wines were tasted. We had an hour free time before a walking tour of the village and the church. We caught a quick bite then explored...so much to see...lovely streets and everything so old. The walking tour was interesting and not hurried. We would have liked more free time there really, to relax over a meal and explore the museum and shops. Our last stop out of the village was another winery but it lacked charm and was so very modern and efficient. Wine was very rough. Disappointing. We would have rather had another hour at Saint- Emillion or another winery with character. We did however have a great day and were well looked after by our guide.
Can I suggest a tour to Saint Emillion with less wine tasting and more time in the village.Thank you!

This is a fantastic day trip. Our host David, a fellow Australian from our home town, was extremely knowledgeable and made the day very interesting. This is a must do side trip from Bordeaux and if you are fortunate enough to have David as your host then that is an added bonus. Thank you David for ALL of your assistance. Robyn, Dennis and Dana

What a wonderful day. Boris was fantastic, very knowledgeable and quite funny. We had 6 in our tour all 8 would have been a tight squeeze in the van which was perfect. 2 vinyards we visited were different and interesting in their differences. The town was great - the 2 hours to eat and wander around were perfect.

This was an excellent tour. Isobel, our guide, was enthusiastic and very well informed, as were the staff at the two vineyards - and the contrast between the two locations and wines was very interesting too. It was good to have a decent amount of free time to explore and enjoy lunch in St Emilion. Highly recommended.

Matthew was a very knowledgable and professional guide and the tour was very worthwhile. Early on we visited Chateau de Sales in Pomerol where we were shown over the winery by a manager who provided expert commentary and information and were able to taste a number of wines from different vintages. We had an extensive tour around St Emilion , had lunch in the village not a good choice of restaurant as it turned out- Matthew was advised to not recommend it in future and a wine tasting in one of the retail outlets. After leaving the village we were taken to another chateau and winery for another tasting. Altogether a very informative tour which included a stop at Chateau Latour which produces the most expensive wines in the world. To be in close proximity to the merlot vines that produce that wine was very exciting.

This trip was really great. We saw some beautiful chateaus and had great wine. The town of Saint-Emilion was also really fun and interesting. It was a great day and the guide was well versed in everything we wanted to know about the town and the wine process. It is a great tour.
