My partner and I chose this tour to further explore wonderful Bordeaux and we couldn't have been happier with our experience. The tour was very pleasant and we particularly appreciated our guide's performance. Marie, our guide, was great at managing the tour in both French and English. She knew the topic very well and delivered a very insightful presentation into Bordeaux wine and French cheese. Kudos to her for also being graceful while firm with one of our fellow toursits who played the bad cop. In addition, the restaurant where the wine and cheese tasting was held was very nice and its staff pleasant. And oh my, the cheese cellar is so impressive! To sum up, I highly reccomend this tour for exploring Bordeaux wine and get an interesting introduction to wine tasting, cheese a volonte to taste and a knowledgeable tour guide.
I loved our class! Our "teacher" was very informative about French wines which really allowed us to make informed decisions when driving the countryside on our own. And the cheese cellar was a-mazing! I didn't want to leave!
