The visit of the Bordeaux vineyards is a must when we are in the area and carrying out this activity with "Get Your Guide" was very good because it brings together many advantages (the route taken by the vehicle, the explanations during the journey. .) From the support by René, the driver/guide, who is a Médoc and knows his region very well, the visit of the 2 castles with the tasting of several of their wines each time and above all the very enriching explanations.

I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The mini van was great, with small numbers of us. It was very appreciated on a very hot French day of 32 degrees. The 2 vineyards were beautiful and the wine tasting was great. The tour guide and company were friendly and the location to meet was perfectly central. Thank you, wishing you the best iver the summer
