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.

Ugo the guide was incredibly knowledgable.

The wine tasting at the winery was great.

Would have liked to have a little more time to walk around St. Emilion, but this was only a half day.

Our guide, Luigi, really made the trip fun and interesting. He knows a lot about wine and was a wonderful guide. Small group of 8 people in a mini van made for a real personal experience.

Our guide Luigi was friendly and spoke good English and French. He also was genuinely interested in wine and knowledgeable on the subject. That coupled with the small size of the group 6 people and the beautiful destination of Saint-Emilion made it a great tour.

Consider getting up early and taking the first tour as according to Luigi the town gets very busy later in the day, especially during peak season as we were in August. In the morning it was almost like we had the town to ourselves.

Two of our fellow travellers were a bit late so maybe that is why we didn't really have any 'free time' in Saint-Emilion, but I didn't feel any was necessary. We walked through the church and town and spent a nice amount of time at one wine tasting in the town and then later one at an actual chateau/vineyard just outside the town.

I'm glad we took the tour. And I just have to say Bordeaux is looking great these days!

Great half day trip - tour of St. Emilion which we wish would have been a full day but unfortunately we didn't have the time so this was a quick tease of a great trip we will definitely do again in the future. Our tour guide was great and very informative and we really enjoyed spending half a day with her on this tour. Thanks.

Our tour guide was Karim and we could not have asked for a better guide. He was quick witted and humerous and so he added to the fun of the day. And let's face it, wine tasting for Australians has got to be a fun day! We had a casual trip to the village of St Emillion that included discussion on the history of the area going back to the time of the Crusaders and the life of the hermit Emillion. The English occupation of the area was an interesting period of time and Karim covered this with sensitivity and humour. His knowledge of the vine growth and operations, the wine making process and the chemistry of the production of fine wines was exquisite and giving us information on the appellations clarified many questions we had on wine from France. It was a lovely, relaxing, entertaining morning.

Karim was our fantastic tour guide for this amazing and educational winery tour and tasting. He was knowledgeable of the history of St. Emilion and the science of wine making. There was never a dull moment....we had lots of laughs too! There were only four of us on this tour which allowed us to see and cover lots of ground. We explored the amazing Chateau Franc Mayne Vineyard, VATs and underground storage areas. We toured the quaint/ small town of St. Emilion and enjoyed another tasting with a local wine merchant. We enjoyed our drive to and from our venue. Karim gave us a great education and his passion was quite visible and contagious. Loved the sniff testing on our trip back too!. Karim, Thank you for a fabulous tour that should not be missed! We will look you up for our next trip to bordeaux!

My sister and I booked this tour when we visited Bordeaux in early March. Our tour guide was Karim, and he was very knowledgeable of the wines of the region. We loved visiting St. Emilion and especially enjoyed the variety of wines we tasted on the tour!

The tour itself was very very good. The venues the guide took us excellent particularly the wine tasting in St Emilion.
BUT VIATOR fell down by not even telling us which Company we would be with. Not on our ticket anywhere. Very poor information on Viators part.
