    Fun and informative! Managed to feel easy and laid back even though so much was packed into the day. Did not expect to learn so much about wine making and the Bordeaux region and history. A good mix of Chateaus and great hosts. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly; special shoutout for giving the tour in multiple languages!

    The tour was very informative. I learned much about Bordeaux wine! We were able to visit multiple Chateaus and tasted the different wines, which elevated my appreciation for wine. It would have been nice to have a good lunch somewhere in the city but I understand that the schedule was pretty packed.

    A lovely way to spend the day. A small, friendly company with a packed itinerary. The trip includes the opportunity to compare and contrast different scales of producers in 2 different areas of Bordeaux, and really allows you to see the difference between Margaux and St Emillion. The itinerary is packed without feeling rushed and the level of information provided is perfect for everyone from the complete newbie to the enthusiastic amateur. The lunch provided was also simple but delicious and a level above what I was expecting. Our guide, Florentine was excellent with real world experience of working in wine production allowing an extra deep dive into the world of wine-making for those with a thirst for knowledge. A real cut above guides I have experienced on other wine tours with other companies.
