Our tour guide, Julia, was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the wine industry in Bordeaux-- she gave us a great intro in a comfortable ride to St. Emilion, and then a very nice and relaxing stroll around St. Emilion itself. We visited Vignobles Carles, where a very bright woman named Berengere shared what it is like to make some of the best wine in the world! She was fantastic! The perfect way to spend a half day trip to wine country!

We went to Chateau La Croizille for our wine tour and tasting. The host had a nice tour of their facilities and did a good job talking us through it. The wine was good too. Our driver/guide for the day was very good. Very knowledgeable about the area, not overdone though. She led us around the town of St. Emilion but you can also tour it on your own if you'd like.

Great tour and our guide Ugo was very friendly, knowledgeable and happy to tailor aspects of the tour to suit the objectives of our small group. At the winery Chateau de Ferrand, Charlie was our guide and we found it very informative and there was an opportunity to taste and buy wine but no pressure or heavy selling. At St Emilion we saw some fabulous sights before being taken to a private tasting with the very knowledgeable and passionate Jeremy and learned a lot about this regions wines and then had free time to wander at our leisure. We found the small group tour much better than a large group where it only takes one or two people to disregard others and throw the schedule out and subsequently cut short some of the highlights. This tour ran perfectly from start to finish and would recommend to anyone

This was an excellent tour and our guide and driver Hugo was exceptional in his knowledge, especially of wine. The trip to winery was very informative as was the visit to the wine shop in St Emilion. Love the heritage township of St Emilion - so quaint.

This was an excellent tour. Our guide, Ugo, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We learned so much about wine and the wine making process. The wine tasting at the chateau was excellent. St. Emilion is a beautiful medieval town and very worth the trip.

What a wonderful time. Our guide Karim was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable about wines, the wineries and vineyards. He took us around the backroads of St. Emilion to see every aspect of wine grape cultivation, even talking with workers and harvesters. One could not have gotten any closer to the ground-to grape-to-wine process than this. The tour of the wineries, both small and large, was informative. The wine and cheese parings at one winery sorry, can't remember the name was memorable. Karim's professional, enthusiastic, congenial nature and pleasant dialogue was refreshing. Definitely a well-worth experience! Thank you Karim and Viator.
