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!
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.
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!
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.
A fantastic day.Tour guide Bruno was lots of fun and informative.
St Emillion was everything we thought it would and more.we'd highly recommend this tour
Our tour was great, I learned a lot about the history of the port of Bordeaux and how the wine business was started. Catherine, our tour guide, was so passionate about the history of Bordeaux. She was an absolute delight and her energy was great! She explained things in English and French! We did the full day wine trip, which I highly recommend.
The tour was thoroughly enjoyable, the guide was friendly and the information was well presented and useful. Definetely very well priced and good value for money.
My husband and I truly enjoyed our Bordeaux wine trip to St. Emilion. The bus was ontime, the guide was knowledgeable and pleasant. The lunch was superb and the visit to the château was informative and enjoyable. In addition, we felt it was a great bargain, well worth the price.

The guide is a very kind lady and the lunch was pretty good!
We loved this trip, as it was a great way to get out into the vinyards, learn about the wine making, and to have some wine tasting. It was a great way to use the one full day we had in Bordeaux. Also make sure you do the full day and not just the half, as it allows a good look into the history of the region and includes a great lunch!
Our tour guide was lovely, really good value, our lunch that was included in the tour was one of the best meals we had in Bordeaux. haven't been disappointed with a Viator tour yet!
4.5! Excellent tour. Lunch was outstanding! Afternoon visits to 2 wineries were excellent as well. Morning could have included another museum or landmark.
Great overall tour, would highly recommend. Good value for money.

Fantastic full day tour including the history of wine making in Bordeaux and trip to vinyard. The bonus was having lunch included at the 'Cheese & Wine' restaurant, where you pick your own cheese board from about 50 different cheeses!! I would recommend this to everyone visiting Bordeaux
Day trip including museum tour, lunch and trip to St Emillon vineyards was excellent value and enjoyable. Guides were well informed and entertaining. Perhaps there was a little bit too much walking in the morning which may not be suitable for elderly people. Aside from that, assez bien!

In general an excellent day out a worthwhile trip, and very good value for money especially considering the lunchtime meal. My only criticism I've seen this mentioned in other reviews was that the tour was conducted in both French and English. This means quite a lot of standing around. Not so bad in the afternooons at the Chateaux, as we could wander about during the French explanations, but the morning museum trip passed very slowly... Would have been nice to split the groups. Our morning consisted of a visit to the wine museum, followed by a walking tour of the Wine Merchant district. An excellent lunch was provided at a Fromagerie if you are a cheeseoholic you should probably seek professional help after devouring their cheese cave if you are fromageophobic like my girlfriend, they still do a decent main course and dessert. After lunch, we joined up with the half-day tour, so the number of people doubled. The chateaux visits are almost luck-of-the-draw. The first one pretty as it was we spent most of our time in a large shed. The second chateau, in contrast, was magnificent. Summary - Plenty of wine tasting I believe we sampled 6 - Opportunity for shopping at each stop - Learn about the wine making process and the region - Friendly tour guide, and helpful chateaux guides
This was much more than a wine tour going from cellar door to cellar door. It added history and understanding to what Bordeaux wines are and where they came from.
