My friend and I had a really enjoyable half- day excursion to two chateaus and the beautiful and historic town of Saint Emilion. We found our guide to be very knowledgeable and friendly. It was a great way to authentically visit the region in a short amount of time. It was easy to book, great value for the money and the meet-up and tour went smoothly. Highly recommend!

Interesting activity in terms of the knowledge gained relating to wine and local history. No issues with pick up or language and all went well. Our guide, Theo was approachable, knowledgeable and kept to schedule. He was supported by a female colleague Galaad -who was learning the role- and she was also helpful, had lots of local knowledge and was in good humour, which assisted our party of six having a nice day. We went on the tour with our 14 year old and she enjoyed also.

Saint-Émilion is super cute. The two châteaux were pretty great - learned a lot about the process that goes into wine making. Enjoyed the wine & appetisers. Thank you , Rémi & Théo !
