5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

We highly recommend this tour. The countryside and chateaux we drove by were amazing. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Most of the fellow tourists were either French or French Canadians and they were happy to listen to the tour guide in French. We ended up being the only 2 English speaking tourists but the tour guide made sure he translated everything for us. The two wineries chateaux we visited for tasting were very beautiful and the wine offered for tasting was of high quality as well as the cheeses that were supplied. The second was built in the 12th century and was very impressive. We actually had the included lunch there. The lunch was an impressive 5 course meal of the highest quality worth every cent. It included Oysters and local cuisine and of course very impressive wines. The red we had was a 2001 vintage. Both wineries also had their own very knowledgeable and articulate people present in detail their winemaking facilities, buildings and processes. Very impressive

This was a great day tour through the Graves region. Our tour guide was extremely friendly and fun, and the meal and wine tasting we had at the second chateau was to die for!

Very well organised. Good value for money. The lunch alone would probably normally cost more than the tour! The guides were all very approachable and spoke perfect English. Highly recommended.

We visited two wineries and had very informative tours led by guides who were very well versed and knowledgeable of the winery. Both French and English were presented. Lunch at the second winery was a 5 star experience in itself. Here we were able to sit with the winemaker and learn even more while enjoying a wonderful afternoon with regional specialties and delightful wines at an elegant table.
The Montequieu's Chateau tour felt long. It was at the end of the day and perhaps after such a long lunch and so much information I wasn't ready to be standing around. The Chateau was beautiful and I think I would have enjoyed this part more if I had understood who this family was to Bourdeaux before I left on the tour.

Excellent days outing and the lunch and wines were the best I had whilst in France. The only downside is the long wait while the guide explains everything in French before repeating it all in English. They seem to have so much more to say in French so we did have to wait quite a while and then ony got a short spiel in English

The wine tour is a good day tour for wine lovers. Packed with information about the wine growers, the "soil terroir" and things about grape growing. The tour was a bit short, though.


3 star rating: Worth doing September 2011

The stops on the tour were terrific. The tour guide was very partial to the french speakers on the tour and did not translate many group discussions into English.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this August 2011

It was supposed to br a wine tour - not a boring, ridiculously long (due to only one bi-lingual guide) tour of some old guy's chateau.
