The tour was fine for the price, which only included one winery and 2 wine tastings. The guide was excellent in her instructions and information. She did her best at herding a very large group (30-ish), which got challenging when not everyone returned to the bus on time after the free time in Saint Emilio. The biggest challenge was 8 booked an English speaking tour and there were about 6 people who wanted French, so we had to hear every explanation and detail repeated in both languages.

It was a good half-day trip for the price we paid. Good reception and introduction to wine making at each vineyard.
