This activity will end right where it started.
Depart from Bordeaux in a climate-controlled coach and travel north to two wine-producing regions — Saint-Emilion and the Pomerol. The latter is located within the Libournais area.

Near Saint-Emilion, you’ll visit a chateau — the French word for ‘castle’ — for a guided wine tasting. Find out how factors like soil and climate combine to give wine grapes distinct characteristics, and how those contribute to the flavor of the wine. Learn what grapes grow best in this area and create Bordeaux’s famous wines.

Next, make your way into the town of Saint-Emilion itself, where you’ll get to explore this exceptional UNESCO World Heritage Site during a walking tour. After that, enjoy some free time to see the town on your own, do some shopping and get some lunch (own expense).

The last stop of your tour is a wine estate in the Pomerol. Sample more of the wines during a wine tasting in a Grand Cru Classé chateau. Learn more about the detailed process of making wine during a tour of the wine cellars and vat house before climbing back into the coach and heading back to Bordeaux.

Excellent day trip with Karim to Saint-Émilion

My full day tour to Saint-Émilion was a 11/10! Karim was a charismatic, funny, energetic, super knowledgeable and very helpful tour guide who was full of information, tips and knowledge about wine and the Bordeaux region in general. I highly, highly recommend doing this day tour (especially with Karim). I had a wonderful time and am leaving Bordeaux with much more information and great wine suggestions than I came with :)

Hugo was a brilliant tour guide. Very knowledgable and friendly the whole day through. Everything was done in a relaxed way, and the wineries we visited on the day were welcoming and passed on some local knowledge. Would really recommend this to anyone who wants to get to see some of Saint Emilion, or would like to understand how wine is produced.

This tour takes you to 3 different chateaux to learn about different aspects of making wines in this Bordeaux region and its unique terroir. And of course, you’ll have a chance to taste the wine as well. It will also give you a 2-3 hour stop at the quaint village of St Emilion. Our guide, Julie, was exceptional. She is very knowledgeable, pleasant and accommodating. If you’re a fan of Merlot, you’ll love this tour.

This was only our second viator experience, but we’d had a very good experience with the first one, so based on that and the very high reviews for the full day Bordeaux wine experience, we went with viator again. So glad we did! Our guide, Kareem, absolutely made this visit to 3 wineries and St. Emilion the best. He was impressive from start to finish. He was very knowledgable about both wine and the wineries and history of the region. We had a blast - he is very funny, and he made us laugh while learning all about the different wines and their blends, etc. I couldn’t believe he learned the names of all 8 of us right away - that’s not easy! When I asked him if we would be in St. Emilion for our scheduled restaurant reservation (I had made a guess), he said no, but volunteered to change the reservation for us. We played a fun wine game in the van in the way back to Bordeaux. It helped that the other 4 passengers were lovely and we all had fun together. All in all, an absolutely wonderful day. Thank you Kareem, and hope to see you again!

We had a great trip and learned a lot about wine production in the region. Pacing was great, and after three stops for tastings, we felt that we had a perfect amount of wine. Stanislaus was a great guide, and I’d highly recommend this experience to anyone interested. Definitely worth it!

Excellent tour of Saint-Émilion! We visited 3 different chateaus and learned about the terroir of the region, then walked for lunch in historic Saint-Émilion. Each vineyard was unique and the hosts were friendly and knowledgable. Our main guide Jérôme brought the tour to life! He is passionate about history and culture, with a very engaging and fun personality. Highly recommend!
