Yanaka was an excellent guide. It was very well-paced. And everything was very comfortable. My husband and I enjoyed the day a lot. Totally worth it.
Nice Tour, Not Enough Tasting
golfkat, May 2019
Staff is great but too much time spent on background. We all wanted tasting, and more tasting!!! I would prefer hitting at least 4 wineries or more.
Great Experience

This was my first wine trip with Viator. I was very impressed Sandrine our tour guide and with her knowledge of region and her enthusiasm and passion for wine.

Not worth your time if you are interested in a day long wine tasting tour. The guide was very knowledgable however it felt that she was just talking at the group for the whole day even on the bus ride out to the vineyards it was non stop talking and because there was a different group that joined us after lunch, she pretty much just went over everything she had already told us in the morning. The morning part was far too long. We were in a Museum from 9.45am - 11.15am, and the guide talked us through every point where there were many times where the info was already written on the wall displays. We just walked through Bordeaux city to a restaurant after -The lunch was good, however it wasn't a wine tasting match as stated on the itinerary. We had one bottle of wine per table of 4 people and the wine was pre chosen and not explained at all. The wineries we were taken to 2 in total were very average and the busload of people meant everyone was trying to get a taste of a wine all at the same time. Seems a bit of a shame when you're in one of the best wine regions in the world. If you are under 40 this likely isn't the wine tour for you!

Lovely afternoon. Bus held about 45 people which was a lot. Tour guide Brigitte did a great job. Morning with Francisca was wonderful. She had to fill in last minute for another guide but was calm and collected. She spoke fluently. Lunch was amazing, great value.

Matthew M, Oct 2016
Great tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Christine seamlessly provided information about Bordeaux, its wine history, and the Bordeaux wine region in both English and in French. We toured a wine museum in Bordeaux in the morning, ate a nice lunch in a local restaurant, and visited two chateaus in the Medoc region in the afternoon. Definitely a great experience for the value!

Janine M, Oct 2016
Excellent tour! A great deal for the money - 9am til 6pm - and a museum and two chateau included with two wine tastings at each place plus a wonderful lunch with more wine there. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very competent for a bilingual tour. For students, the price was a little daunting at first, but we were easily able to follow the descriptions in French and came away very satisfied from a full day very much worth the money. Learned a ton, got to see a lot outside of the city of Bordeaux. Overall an excellent experience.

Emily_W, Aug 2016
Worst decision ever. This is actually a boring 4 hour tour of the city. Not the vineyard. Then lunch is a sparse rice, chicken and veg dish, with one glass of wine. There is finally a bus at 1:30pm to take you to winery 1 hour away where you will be told to be silent on the bus, not talk or make any noise while your guide waffles on through an inaudible mic and broken bus speaker at high volume. We passed lovely wineries only to ewnd up in a really small dismal winery where again we were lectured for another 40minutes and tasted a pretty awful young wine then another pretty 2012 wine. It was such a waste of a beautiful day. We had no walks through the vineyard either. I cannot tell you enough how awful this experience was. I felt trapped on the tour, and utterly annoyed and disappointed. People were afraid to talk or ask anything in case we were all scolded again. waste of time and money and sadly affected my experience of what should have been a well deserved holiday. Never again

Trip was not the expected tour of vineyards but a rather long walking tour of Bordeaux with lunch in town before going to two chateau tasting rooms. I had been expecting more time touring the wineries.

Kate W, Jul 2016
Had a great day with out tour guide Brigette, loved the slower pace of the tour, it made you feel like you were actually on holidays, not rushing from one sight to another. Lunch at the Fromages restaurant was delightful as was the visit to the two chateaus, I came away with so much more knowledge on wine... And a few bottles under my wing!

Nicole_N, Jun 2016
The first part, with the wine museum, walk and lunch was sensational, we were a smallish group.......but then, when we went to the winery we ended up being a large bus full group, with people being babies over seating. At St Emilion it was rushed and overcrowded with tourists. The winery was meah...

Bonnie W, May 2016
Worst Tour EVER. Very boring morning. The Guide was terrible, she repeated the same thing over and over and the delivery was not engaging. she talked the whole time on the bus but again saying the same thing over and over. At the wine tastings you receive the smallest amount of wine ever - book something else.

Darryl r, Oct 2015
Great value for money and an excellent guide - started the morning with a tour of the wine museum, a walking tour of central Bordeaux and then had a lovely lunch at a fromagier. The tour of St Emillion was great too - very informative and the tour of the underground church was very interesting. Would highly recommend.

Excellent tour with great meal and company thrown in. Could't have asked for more. My knowledge of Bordeaux wines and St Emilion in particular has been improved considerably due to all the guides encountered on the tours. Would recommend this tour to anyone.

Samuel Z, Apr 2015
2 1/2 hours at in that basement at a "museum" was excessive. Not only was it boring and tiresome to stand there for that long but the information was hard to believe on account of the dozens of typos and grammatical errors the museum had in their displays. The vineyard and lunch were nice though.

Gozde A, Apr 2015
The morning part was mostly spent in the wine museum, the talking was a bit too much and too detailed at times. Saint Emilion is beautiful, the chateau trip was nice as well for the afternoon part but the ultra-talkative guide has killed the charm a bit.
