We had a great time, the guides were really interesting and taught us a lot about wine. It finished earlier than expected. We hope to have had a chance to walk around St Emilion for longer.

An amazing experience with an amazing tour guide, Charles. He was funny, kind and made learning about wine interesting and fun. A lovely fellow who from the start was clear on what the plan was for the half-day trip to St. Emilion. We were picked up in front of the tourism office, walked over to the comfy van and within 45 minutes were in St. Emilion to the winery. Winery tour was short and sweet then we went to the wine shop for the tasting. All of the wines we tasted were great, the only change would be that I would've liked it to be more formal and sit down versus standing and discussing wine in the middle of the wine shop. Then, Charles gave us a nice tour of the town and some free time to roam which was perfect. Overall, it was a lovely day!

Best tour ever - a must do in Bordeaux!

Fantastic tour with Karim! Highly recommend - a must do in Bordeaux! We both agreed after this was the best tour we have ever been on. Karim was incredibly knowledgeable about the region, wine, history and culture. He also brought so much humour to the trip! Really well organized. Great to explore Saint Emilion village, followed by the two chateaus for a tour and wine tasting.

Luigi was super knowledgeable, funny, and helpful throughout the whole tour. Went to a chateau in St Emilion, toured the town, and did a tasting nearby. As a sommelier, he answered all of our wine questions and did some fun exercises for us to understand the flavor underneath the wine. 100% recommend, would do another tour with this group and Luigi again.

Our guide, Karim, was fantastic! He was informative and funny, and was very knowledgeable about the St Emilion region and Bordeaux wine. He made the drive very enjoyable with his commentary and activities. The wine tasting was great and St Emilion is a very cute town. We got to go down to the limestone quarry area and it was very unique and fascinating.

Our guide was knowledgeable and so charming; she gave us a great background on Bordeaux on the way to St. Emilion. The chateaux tour guide was also great, very friendly. He poured us 5 tastings from a varied monetary and taste range, explaining each in detail. He was also very helpful in providing recommendations. St. Emilion was gorgeous and has some very nice shopping and food. The trip exceeded our expectations and we are already planning our next trip to Bordeaux!

Karim, our tour guide, was excellent! Highly knowledgeable, hilarious and a great guide overall. The choice of winery for tour was great and the staff were welcoming and knowledgeable too. We had a tour of the winery, then the limestone caves where wine is kept, then moved on to Saint Emilion where we stopped for wine tasting and a hour of free time. We ordered wine and cheese at a local wine bar and it was phenomenal. Views, good and wine were all great. Would recommend. Thanks Karim.

A peek into the vineyard

Our guide was a true lover of wine and did a wonderful job sharing this region with us. We were separated into groups of 8 (in our case, four couples) and rode in a van for about 45min to see two adjoined chateaux. There was more tour/education than wine tasting but it was fascinating and enjoyable!

A lovely morning. Well constructed tour. More time and explanation during the tasting would improve it.

St. Emilion and it’s vistas are beautiful. Our guide Julie was lovely,very knowledgeable and friendly. Slight downsides: we left Bordeaux 15 minutes late which ate into our time at St. Emilion. The wine tasting did not include much detail about the three different wines we tasted. For example which aromas and characteristics the wines demonstrated or not.

St Emilion was a gem, absolutely worth a visit. We tasted 5 delicious wines and learnt so much about the history of wine in Bordeaux & St Emilion, it was fascinating.
