Your tour from Bordeaux starts with the drive to St-Emilion with your private guide, who shares enthusiasm and information about the history and wine industry in the Bordeaux region. When you arrive, hop inside your hot air balloon for your exciting flight over the vineyard-covered landscape.
During the 1-hour ride, rise slowly into the air and look down on the wine estates of appellations like Pomerol, Fronsac and St-Emilion. While you take in views of the châteaux and rolling hills, enjoy an aperitif with local products. Then return to the ground for the drive to a high-end classified St-Emilion winery, where you’ll take a tour of the estate and enjoy a tasting of its wines, some of Bordeaux’s best.
Finally, visit the UNESCO World Heritage–listed village of St-Emilion, where your guide will show you its medieval landmarks and tell you about its history. Don’t miss a taste of a local specialty—macaroons. Your tour then concludes with return to your Bordeaux hotel.
