A great day with a friendly, helpful and informative guide. So sorry as I cannot remember his name but he was young and previously lived in Paris. The size of the group and vehicle were also good. The sand dunes were amazing with stunning views of the sea and the forest at the top. Be prepared for a well worth climb up the dunes. I did it fine at the age of 68! Then we drove to the oyster farms and had a delicious lunch of oysters outdoors overlooking the boats and sea - magic! The afternoon was also most informative and pleasant . I learnt a lot of new facts about wine making and enjoyed sampling some good wines! In all, a wonderful day in which you also saw much of the surrounding scenery around Bordeaux without having to drive yourself!
A wonderful day out with a large variety of things to do, Jerome our guide was great and very entertaining. Loved the oysters and the wine especially!
I highly recommend this tour,nice guide,small group,the dune is great,the oysters were fresh and tasty
The tour was a very fun and interesting side trip in the middle of Bodeaux wine country. Manon was an excellent guide. Loved the hike to the top of the dune. Oysters were awesome as well. Ken from Virginia.
We loved this day. The sandhills are immense, like going up Uluru in the Northern Territory of Australia. The view from the top over the Atlantic was mind-blowing; so beautiful. Next came the oyster tasting, washed down with a crisp white. The picnic lunch, wine tasting, lovely guide - superb
We love the combination of visiting Arcachon with Oyster Tasting and wine tasting at Medoc region! Very good mix of exercise and good food and wine!
We met our guide, Stephane, at the Bordovino office in Bordeaux and started our adventure. Our small group of eight travelers quickly bonded and had a delightful day. The dune climb was a bit challenging but we were rewarded with a spectacular view and a refreshment break of fresh oysters and a crisp, dry white wine. After lunch, Stephane, switched our focus to wine tastings at Chateau Chasse Spleen and Chateau Gruaud La Rose, the latter of which was a gorgeous property. Stephane was well versed in his extensive knowledge of wines and the rich history of the region. He also helped us assemble a selection of wines for shipment back to the States. In addition to the wines we purchased at the Chateaux, Bordovino has a large selection available at their office and, if you are shipping out of the area, you can avoid the value added tax. A great day overall!
I really like our tour guides. They are very humble and tell us everything about our tour in Bordeaux.
Amazing experience climbing the sand dune. View at the top was spectacular and we were even rewarded with a glass of wine. Both tour guides were knowledgeable and very approachable. Also enjoyed our time at the different wineries.. Very educational trip and the food platter offered along with the wine tasting during the last stop was delicious. Highly recommended.
Tour gudes were great with good English. Dune du Pila was a humbling climb with the most gorgeous views over the Arcachon basin and the Atlantic. Enjoyed oysters at an ancient fishing harbor. You don't really see Arcachon itself but the other sites were great. Back into Bordeaux to pick up more people to go to the Medoc wine tours which were lovely. A lot of driving and picnic lunch in their office was mediocre and sounded more inviting than it actually was
Comfortable transport, knowledgeable guides / drivers. Recommend this trip for anyone.
The trip was fantastic value for money and a great way of exploring the region. The trip to the Dune du Pilat was definitely a highlight and the view was amazing. The trip to Medoc in the afternoon provided a great introduction to wine making and the guides were very knowledgeable and very keen to answer questions.
We loved the experience and content. Kevin was a great tour guide and we highly recommend him. Only recommendation relates to the van - morning van was good, but we got changed in the afternoon to a van that did not have A/C in the back and it was very hot (and after some wine and with twisty roads it was not good). Also, if the guide could have their commentary amplified when in the van - hard to impossible to hear in the back. Overall, good day - would have been a 5 star if we had A/C in the afternoon van.
It was a nice combination of sand, oysters and wine. First part was very good, nice host. Lunch/picnic was not what I have expected. A baguette and a glass of wine in a crowded kitchen where I was put on a chair with a little space on a table. Second half, the wine in Medoc, was dissapointing because I have chosen an english tour, but we were three which spoke english and five french, so I felt that it was a lot waste of time since they had to do all in two languages.
The tour hardly offered any commentary during the hours of transportation which was a waste of our time. You pay for transfers and brief tours by 2 château operators. Tasting was ok but did not include premium wines we tasted at similarly priced tours. The baguette lunch was embarrassingly cheap.
