Wonderful bike tour followed by a delicious lunch in the chateau's garden, a lovely setting. The staff was professional and friendly. You don't need to be an expert biker we would do it again.

This was a wonderful bike tour of two great wineries as well as a small, but beautiful, village. This was an easy bike ride with lots of rest, their are no steep, or even slightly steep, hills to ride. The bikes are geared so there is no need to walk your bike, I must say you do need know how to ride a bike, but the riding is easy. Our group had seven people which seemed to work out great, our guide stopped at a number of different grape orchards and explained about the different varieties of wine grown in the region we visited and the various classifications. The two wineries we stopped at were wonderful, each having great wines to taste. The lunch was great and set up on the grass underneath shade trees at a winery.
This is a great wine tour to go on, easy riding, wonderful wineries and lunch plus very knowledgable guides!! Book it, you'll be glad you did!!

This tour was something we all were really looking forward to and the day arrived and it was raining, not just raining but pouring! We still went in the hopes it would lighten up which it didn't and it was still fun. Claire was such a lovely and knowledgeable guide. The vineyards were stunning and the lunch was amazing. We had to shorten the bike ride but still toured St. Emilion and enjoyed the tastings

We ended up having 5 people for our group and this size was perfect. Our group leader, Nathan, was passionate and very knowledgeable. The food was excellent and the scenery was beautiful. You should be in relatively good shape for this tour.

This was an excellent tour. We were in Europe for 17 days and this was the best day of the trip. The biking was not too taxing. It was just right. The countryside was beautiful. The wine was wonderful and the weather was fantastic. Perfect day.

This trip meet all our expectations and more. Gwen was a very knowledgeable, fun and friendly guide who quickly established a rapport with the group. Each Château guide was also knowledgeable, approachable and made us feel very welcome. We had lunch in such a beautiful setting with a very tasty five course meal served with two different wines from the Château. The tour was well paced and allowed people to stop for photos, gelato and an end of group drink. We appreciated the small group size and the personalised manner in the way the tour was led.

We really enjoyed the bike tour, the chateaux and chais visits and the walk at the gorgeous village of St Emilion. Our guide Yan is nice and knowledgeable. Chateau Siurac is amazing and the lunch in the garden was just perfect. We learn a lot about wine and the region. Highly recommended.

My daughter and I took this tour and absolutely loved it! For an adventure to the countryside, none could be better. While we are not cyclists, we managed the nine miles well. Our guide was knowledgeable and most helpful the Chateaus beautiful. We did not know much about wine, but learned much on this most enjoyable ride through the French countryside. If you are looking for a day in the country, this is a great way to spend it. Wonderful company and guides!!

The tour was fantastic, and our guide was extremely knowledgable and fun!

The lunch was delicious and way more than I thought it would be. The wine was amazing as well, with the chateau selection showing the wide variety this area has to offer. Great tour.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this tour! We got there very early to make sure everything was in order and were greeted by extremely friendly staff who assured us that we were definitely good to go. From there, the guide handled everything very well, even all of the little mishaps along the first few minutes of the bike ride. The chateaux were gorgeous, the vineyards were amazingly beautiful with the fall colors, lunch was absolutely delicious, and the wines were very enjoyable we bought two bottles afterward. We took a stroll through the small, medieval town after all of that and then got restaurant and wine bar recommendations on the way home. All around, it was an absolutely delightful excursion and my favorite part of my 2 week trip to France. Even my husband agrees, and he can be a tough guy to please! Bordovino is the best!

Astrid was a wonderful guide, the bike ride through the vineyards and winery visits were outstanding. St Emillion is a wonderful treasure for all to enjoy. We had a fantastic lunch on a folding table in the shade overlooking the vineyard with St Emillion far in the distance. We toured to wineries, one traditional and the other large and fairly modern. A highlight of our three week vacation.

This was a fantastic tour, a great way to see the vineyards surrounding St-Emilion! My wife and I were part of a small group of casual riders of varying standards so our very professional and informative guide kept the pace at a gentle speed so that everyone was able to stay together and enjoy the great scenery!

The total distance cycled was 20 kilometres, 12 in the morning and 8 in the afternoon. It should be mentioned that there are a number of hills on this riding tour! Some of the hills are quite easy, several may require more effort to master if you're only a very occasional rider.

After a 45 minute drive from Bordeaux we cycled from St-Emilion to a local family-owned and managed Château. Here we were given a private tour of their operations then provided a fantastic lunch overlooking the vines which included several bottles of the local Château vintages.

After lunch we cycled back to St-Emilion where we were given a tour of the village. We were then transported to another nearby commercially-run winery for another tour and some wine tasting.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour which was a present from our children. We learnt a great deal about the local Chateaus as well as the history of St-Emilion and the region from our guide who really took great care of us. Highly recommended!

I was very happy with them as a company - I like their professionalism, friendliness, location, and honest company policies. This tour begins a ways outside the city, so there is about a 45 min van ride (after meeting in the city). It is a bit long when exhausted on the way home, but on the way there it was nice and we basically had a 45 min class in the car as the tour guide told us all sorts of things about wine-making and the different wine regions and classifications in France. The biking was definitely strenuous with lots of long but not excessively steep hills (the picture definitely makes it look more leisurely). But it was wonderful biking through the vineyards - the scenery was beautiful and it was the quintessential French experience. Lunch was absolutely amazing! Our guide was also amazing - extremely knowledgeable, very friendly, and spoke excellent english. In fact I learned more from her tour of the first chateau than I did from the employee that showed us around the second chateau where he worked. All in all an absolutely wonderful experience! So glad I came across this tour!
