What people are saying about Margaux

A very complete visit with a guide who did not count her time, expert explanations, a real cultural and oenological exchange. A very rich experience, very well organized. We recommend in particular this very balanced formula between visit of the installations and tasting.

We had a wonderful, guided tour at Chateau Haut Breton. The guide Florentine was very competent, inspiring and willing to answer all our strange questions with an interested and open mind. Not to forget excellent languages skills. We enjoyed every minute.

The Tasting class is good if you're a newbie to wine or to French wine, otherwise you could skip it. The afternoon tour to Medoc and the Tour/Tasting at the 2 very different Wineries was EXCELLENT.

Well worth the money. A great afternoon on the motorbike and sidecar travelling between the chateauxs and vineyards. Thomas, our guide was great.

Great tour with a great guide! Thank you very much
