Excellent tour. Though it did seem that the guide spent more time talking in French, when there were more wanting to hear the English version only 2 people wanting French compared to around 20 others.

St Emillion was fantastic. I would recommend choosing the Sunday as your option to see this beautiful town.

Great tour to see some of the Medoc scenery and to get detailed explanations and tastings at two vineyards. Bruno was very informative and talked practically the whole time about what we were seeing and about the history of the Medoc and the wines. Half a day was just the right amount of time.

It was a very nice trip, would be nice to have more time on the vineyards but is totally understandable due to the limited time we had. Anyway, it was a great experience and a nice opportunity to know the 'art of wine' in Bordeaux Nonetheless, maybe more balance between the french and english would be nice, sometimes it seemed the french version was the most profound

This was a great trip to get a feel for the Bordeaux wine area. You visit a traditional style vineyard that utilises old methods for the production of the Sauternes style wine. The second winery is a more modern operation producing white and red varieties. Staff at both wineries gave a comprehensive and interesting talk about their vineyard and their wine making operations

We took the Sunday half day trip to Saint Emilion. The village was stunning and the chateau/wine tasting exactly as imagined. Couldn't have been better.

The half day tour was just good to visit Saint Emilion and then a small wineyard. The guide brought us to a church in a cave and explained the interesting and unexpected history very well. The owner of the wineyard explained the whole wine process very good and thus realising that wine making is a highly sensitive process. All in all it was a worthwile tour and I can recommend this to everyone!
