We had an amazing day out exploring the French countryside in St Emilion and would recommend this tour without hesitation! Our guide, Debbie, was lovely and had a wealth of knowledge regarding wine production and the history of the region. I can't stress enough just how stunning the views in this area are and if you have the time this tour is well worth the price!

Great from the very beginning. Very nice and friendly guide, perfect group og 8 people. Charming tour in St Emilion and a fantastic visit with lunch and wine at Chateau Cote de Baleau followed by a charming ride on the bike through the wine area. Thank you for a fantastic day.

My husband and I decided to do this on our 10th wedding anniversary and it didn’t disappoint! We thoroughly enjoyed the whole day! Cycling through the vineyards with our excellently knowledgeable tour guide Vincent was truly outstanding. The food and wine were really delicious. We met some really nice people and made new friends. The cycling isn’t too taxing and we learned some really interesting facts about wine from St Emillion and Pomerol. In all a great experience and we would definitely recommend.
