Simply amazing! This is a MUST do tour in Bordeaux specially if you haven't been there yet, which was my case. The guide was extremely knowledgeable, the wines were amazing and the cheeses were divine! I learnt so much about wine and the tasting tips that I now feel like a pro! The place where the tasting took place was really charming and felt very exclusive. It definitely went beyond my expectations!

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!

Very professional guide. She is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the history, geography and wines of Bordeaux. The wine tasting session is very well-explained. We blind-tasted three red wines from Bordeaux. The cheese cellar is located at the basement of the restaurant (5min walk from Tourist office). Lots of selections. Great guide, great tour.
