This trip was amazing and I would highly recommend it to others. It was good fun riding the motorcycle and Alexandre was fantastic!!! He was super helpful and considerate. My husband is in a wheelchair but this didn't stop Alexandre to take the booking. He made it all possible which is amazing as we often face made obstacles that makes thing very inaccessible. It was a lot of fun. Thank you for a great day out!!!

A really great (day) tour! The ride in the sidecar was fantastic, we were entertained and laughed a lot. The selected wineries have given us a good impression. At lunchtime there were regional specialties for a picnic. Our individual wishes were always taken care of. An all-round successful tour. Definitely book when visiting Bordeaux. Thank you, Alexandre! Thank you Arnaud!

This was an outstanding activity to do in the Bordeaux area. We were picked up right outside our apartment by our fantastic host. I'm very sorry but I can't remember his name. He was brilliant, knowledgeable, funny and a great tour guide. The motorbike/side car was a very memorable way to see Saint Emilion and the surrounding countryside of the Bordeaux region. The wine tour and tasting at the chateau was also very good and very cool, we learned alot about the wine making process and the caves underneath the chateau were very cool to see! We were dropped off back at our apartment and given some local recommendations for food and drink. I can't recommend this enough. Definitely worth doing whilst in the area! Thank you so much for a memorable experience!
