Luigi was amazing - he is a sommelier doing a wine tour. Enough said! Grazie Luigi!!!

This tour exceeded my expectations! Our guide Luigi was knowledgeable and incredibly patient. He made sure to answer all of our questions even the 'stupid' ones and gave us time to take photos of the Chateaux' and surrounding areas. As well as this, he made the experience fun and light hearted we played a smelling game on our way back.
We were a group of 4 young girls with little to no knowledge about wine, but thanks to Luigi we've come home confident that we know all there is to know about Bordeaux wine.
It's one of the best tours I've taken and I recommend it 100

This was a lot of fun. It was very nice to see a little of the country side. The wines were good.

Really enjoyed our tour with Ugo. The size of the group meant you could ask lots of questions and Ugo was really knowledgeable about the region and the wines, as well as being very friendly and enthusiastic as well as being very polite. We couldn't have had a better host. We visited two chateaus and both were interesting for different reasons, and the wine was lovely. The tour was not too long to be tedious, and we would definitely recommend this company. Also excellent value for money, especially when looking at the prices of the competitors.

We had a great tour of the Medoc region. Boris, our guide was very helpful during the tour. He was friendly, outgoing and very informative about Bordeaux and the Mediterranean region. Highly recommended. Next time maybe we can do a longer tour.

An excellent tour of 2 chateaux in the Medoc region. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The conversation was informative and fun between stops which made the time pass quickly. We were in the Margaux area specifically and stopped at Chateau Haut-Breton and Chateau Dauzac. There was also a brief stop to view Chateau Margaux itself though only from the gate. Both chateaux had friendly and helpful reps to guide us through the grounds and the wine making process. The wine tastings were excellent as well. In all an excellent tour and well worth the cost.

Excellent tour guide and very knowledgeable personnel at the chateaux. A great opportunity for tasting some of the higher end priced wines.

We learnt a lot about the region and appellations. The small group meant that we could ask more questions and we got to taste and blend wines which was fantastic. The visit to the wineries was good and also very interesting to learn about the wine-making process.

It was a very fun and informative tour. Our guide, Marion, was very knowledgeable and attentive towards us during the trip. We liked that she also showed us attractions in Bordeaux itself and not only the vineyards and chateaux. Overall, it was a great tour and a nice way to spend the day.

It is beautiful to drive to Medoc area. We enjoyed the visit to both wineries. Tour Leader was very informative, she spoke very good English. I wished that there would be appetizer or lunch with the tasting, since wine taste much better paired with food.

The guide was great, very dedicated to his job and we had a lovely day! The wineries were lovely and the people very friendly, saw some beautiful scenery. It was very easy to do the booking in the Iphone and just show the voucher rather than having to print it off - I would definitely recommend this trip.

The Medoc tour we took via aviator from Bordeaux was underwhelming. The tour operator did did seem very organized and the chateau's we visited were not as grand as I was expecting. A positive note is that both wineries staffed professional, knowledgeable wine experts. Our guide talked way too much.

We were the only two people on the tour which made it nice and private. Our driver/tour guide was fluent in English and knowledgeable about wines - like us. Now the bad news.....Because we rented a car, we could have easily driven to the two wineries ourselves. We had no control over which wineries the company chose and how well they were rated. In France, you have to take a tour of each winery before a tasting - seeing the same vats, barrels and listening about how to make wine over and over again. Some interesting facts were gathered and fun seeing the different wineries, but overall boring and time consuming. In all led up to....We were very disappointed that only 2 wines were poured for tasting and very, very small pours. That was it. For $157 plus tip to guide, we spent over $180 - big rip off. I would recommend renting your own car, calling the wineries you want to see, and book yourself.

This tour operator is dishonest. We arrived at the pickup point on time, and waited for the tour guide. After over an hour, a guide from the company arrived, for a later tour. They claimed the guide was there and called for us, which is a complete lie. When contacted the company was unhelpful and said, the only option was to take a taxi to one of the wineries, approximately 40 miles away. They us no rebooking options and have continued to lie when asked by Viator. We plan on never using them again.
