This tour was first rate! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and easy to understand. Our winery visits contained a ton of information, wine samples and a food pairing. Our gourmet lunch was awesome. The scenery was beautiful!
The only suggestion for improvement would be at the vineyard where the tour guide and the owner took turns speaking in English and French. This resulted in taking twice as long. Two guides are needed: an English speaker and a French speaker.

a really great day out although our guide did not give such a good commentary in English, and was the first one to sit down for lunch leaving a really great group of people to sort themselves out. However the food and wine made up for the guide, with another guide this would rate five stars

Very professional guide. The day covered several top growth Chateaux with a the red carpet rolled out for all attendees. The lunch provided was delicious with more wines being tasted during lunch. All well timed visits without the feeling of being rushed. Comfortable large bus.

There are few vineyards to see and quite interesting to see the different operations. Lunch was not too bad.

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2017

This tour was an excellant introduction to the Medoc wine country and 4 different winerys. I was glad we took another tour the next day to St. Emilion because the winerys there were more family owned and we could purchase wine for shipment to the US. The Medoc tour was like touring the larger winerys in Napa...beautiful scenery but you are not tasting their best wines!!The guide was very well versed in his subject matter and was well worth our trip.Food and lunch were excellant and very filling...
