Superbe excursion que je recommande à tous. Départ de Bordeaux en mini bus. Arrivée au 1er château château Baleau pour une balade en vélo dans les vignobles. Retour au château pour un excellent dîner dégustation de vins 1 blanc et 2 rouges. Seconde balade en vélo avec arrêt à St-Émilion puis visite d'un 2ième château et d'une autre dégustation de vins 2 rouges. Retour au 1er château puis retour en mini bus à Bordeaux. Arrivée vers 19h00. Super groupe petit et excellente guide, flexible.
Overall it was very enjoyable. Low impact, easy ride and beautiful scenery. Our tour guide Soline was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and funny and charming. Great way to spend the day. St. Emilion was quite a surprising town. My suggestions, for a party of eight, a little more food would be appreciated. And more wine. I'm sorry, but 3 bottles among 8 people at lunch did not cover it. We had to buy an additional bottle for table. We took a similar tour in Tuscany and had a much larger group and wine was flowing easily.
This was a wonderful bike tour of two great wineries as well as a small, but beautiful, village. This was an easy bike ride with lots of rest, their are no steep, or even slightly steep, hills to ride. The bikes are geared so there is no need to walk your bike, I must say you do need know how to ride a bike, but the riding is easy. Our group had seven people which seemed to work out great, our guide stopped at a number of different grape orchards and explained about the different varieties of wine grown in the region we visited and the various classifications. The two wineries we stopped at were wonderful, each having great wines to taste. The lunch was great and set up on the grass underneath shade trees at a winery.
This is a great wine tour to go on, easy riding, wonderful wineries and lunch plus very knowledgable guides!! Book it, you'll be glad you did!!
This tour was something we all were really looking forward to and the day arrived and it was raining, not just raining but pouring! We still went in the hopes it would lighten up which it didn't and it was still fun. Claire was such a lovely and knowledgeable guide. The vineyards were stunning and the lunch was amazing. We had to shorten the bike ride but still toured St. Emilion and enjoyed the tastings
