Beautiful day spent in St Emilion with our charming guide Xavier who was very skilled, a great storyteller and we learnt so much. The two visits at the two wine houses were also very good and both guides at each house were equally very skilled in teaching and answering our questions. The organised lunch was a beautiful treat, looking out at the hills and the tour in St Emilion was gorgeous and a treat to the eyes. Well recommended !

This tour was fantastic! Our guide, Florentine, was so knowledgeable and friendly, made our trip very personable. She took pictures for us, went above and beyond to make sure we were having a good time. Also, the winery Chateau Le Chatel, was the perfect family owned business. Diane served us delicious wine and a great sense of humor.
