We were 2 minibuses with 2 drivers and guides. We have adored. They shared their knowledge with great enthusiasm. We were only 2 French people but they translated the visits which were in English. The tours were very interesting. The perfect rhythm. The break at Saint Emilion was enough. We learned a lot about winemaking and the region. Thank you ☺️

A well organised and extremely informative tour maybe a little pricey but I learnt more on this tour than a day at Bordeaux wine museum. Our guide Carole answered every question and our group had many which made us run a little late. Would of loved to buy a bottle of the wine we tasted and drunk it within the grounds of the château and I’m sure the rest of our group would’ve done the same. Perhaps worth adding to this tour.

Very cool trip! The excursion with Carol was very informative, charming and enjoyable. We had a fun little group and there was a good vibe. We really liked the two or three chateaux. Visiting a small wine cellar in the middle of St. Emilion was also very impressive. Definitely a recommendation!
