    We have a wonderful time, Angie was fantastic! Definitely can depend on the other people who end up in your group, but luckily we had a nice bunch. I would absolutely recommend this tour - great value for the cost!

    Great tour - small group tour leaving from Bordeaux City Center takes you to 3 different wineries with informative sessions and wine tasting experiences. There is an opportunity to purchase wine but no pressure to buy. Great learning opportunity and it was fun to taste the different wines! Also, there was an opportunity to have lunch on your own in a small seaside town which was quiet, friendly, and beautiful. Our tour guide Morgane was fantastic - very friendly and very knowledgeable.

    My wife and I spent 3 days in Bordeaux and booked this tour to see the left bank wineries and wines of Bordeaux. We had a wonderful time on the tour driving past many of the famous Chateaus of the region and made 3 stops at 3 very different wineries which gave us an idea of the different variety in the area. One of the three visits wasn't very enjoyable but the other two made up for them! Plus we had time to stop for lunch in Saint Julien which was enjoyable. Our tour guide Lea was knowledge, friendly and did a great job showing us as much of the region in one day. Overall I would definitely recommend this tour!

    Three very different operations. All interesting and informative. Guide had good English and excellent knowledge and personality

    We were 5 people on tour with a really great host - Lea. The journey in the Mercedes van was comfortable, the three wineries most informative and all complimented by Lea’s knowledge and enthusiasm.

    We enjoyed our day, it wasn’t rushed allows for as much as we needed.

    Just what we hoped for, our guide Karim was extremely good. Information flowed, he showed us various interesting non wine sites on route and kept us awake after the wine tasting with a challenging quiz. All the Chateau wine guides were excellent but special mention to Alice at Chateau La Grange.
    If you have a free day to do this do not hesitate if you are interested in wine, history or fellow imbibers .

    Jerome took us to three chateaux in the Medoc region. Two of the three were 1855 Grand Cru Classe and the third also produced excellent wines, but was newer. Lunch in Pauillac was delicious and the entire excursion exposed us to great wines with explanations of how they were made and how their terrors make them great. Thank you

    A really fantastic tour with a great mix of different wineries and wines. The whole experience was extremely smooth and well organised.

    Everything about the tour was fantastic -- small group (just my family of four + another wonderful couple), relaxed pace, and a brilliant guide (Bruno was charming, funny, sweet, and very knowledgable). The three chateaux were very different, and the guides at each of them were wonderful too. I would definitely recommend this tour!
