What You Can Expect

Small-Group St Emilion Half-Day Trip from Bordeaux

Discover the vineyards of St Emilion on your half-day trip

Meet your guide and climb into an air-conditioned minivan to begin your half-day trip to Saint-Emilion from Bordeaux. Enjoy the scenery out the windows as you travel to this beautiful town, named for an 8th-century Breton monk. It was his followers who first began growing grapes and making wine in this area, now one of the most famous wine-growing regions in the world.

Stop along the way to Saint-Emilion at a grand cru winery to sample some of the local wines and see the beautiful chateau.

Join your guide for a 45-minute walking tour of Saint-Emilion, learning more about this historic village, and then enjoy free time to explore the town at your leisure — including any shopping you might want to do and time to get some lunch (own expense). If you haven’t had enough of the region’s famous wine, you can also stop into one of the many wine cellars in Saint-Emilion for another wine tasting before climbing back into the minivan for the return trip to Bordeaux.

Our guide, Jeremy was enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
The tour was comprehensive and gave us a diverse look at the village, the industry, a chateau and a great vertical tasting in a beautiful wine shop.
I recommend.

This trip was the perfect combination of visiting a winery and seeing a charming medieval village. My daughter, sister and I are not big wine enthusiasts and did not want to dedicate a whole day doing wine tasting. This was just what we hoped it would be. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and we never felt rushed when we were walking around. I highly recommend this tour. Sandy from Cleveland

This was an excellent tour. We were in a van but our guide also used a sound system so we could hear clearly. He knew everything of the area, explained about walking on the steep slope of St. Emilion old town. The wine tasting was excellent.

We took a small group tour to Chateau Soutard. It was a very informative tour by a very good enologist. St. Emilion is a quaint ancient town and our guide gave us a good walking tour around the place including a visit to a wine shop where we engaged in more wine tasting. It was here we tasted the new Chateau Canon, from the winery recently owned by the Chanel Brothers . Certainly worth the visit.

We enjoyed the tour a lot. The guide was very fun and informative. The van was a little tight if your large. the winery as well as the tour of St. Emilion were wonderful. Our guide was easy to understand and really made sure we understood a lot of the grading and status of the wines and wineries. An excellent tour.

A delightful way to spend a half day. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. We had a lovely afternoon. Also a big thanks to the young lady at Chateau Soutard who was our guide at the vineyard who was so enthusiastic and friendly. A must do trip when visiting bordeaux.

Boris was full of interesting knowledge of the region and surrounds. We learnt so much about the wines and St Emilion. History with wine tasting should be a must. If we did this again we would go for the full day tour so we could enjoy a lunch in the quaint town of St Emilion.
