A well organised and extremely informative tour maybe a little pricey but I learnt more on this tour than a day at Bordeaux wine museum. Our guide Carole answered every question and our group had many which made us run a little late. Would of loved to buy a bottle of the wine we tasted and drunk it within the grounds of the château and I’m sure the rest of our group would’ve done the same. Perhaps worth adding to this tour.

Very cool trip! The excursion with Carol was very informative, charming and enjoyable. We had a fun little group and there was a good vibe. We really liked the two or three chateaux. Visiting a small wine cellar in the middle of St. Emilion was also very impressive. Definitely a recommendation!

This was one of the best tours we ever took. Not only was our tour guide, Hugo, excellent at his job, but he went above and beyond by recommending restaurants following our excursion…even offered to make reservations if we desired. As for the tour, the wineries we visited were highly informative and welcoming- not to mention beautiful. St. Emilion is magical and such a jewel…brings you back in time. This tour is well worth the money.
