Enjoy a local Bordeaux chocolate to pair with your wine.

Friendly and Professional Guide

The tour is nice, guide was friendly and knowledgable. The wine tasting is very short and could be improved though.

Not enough time in St Emilion

An average tour with an excellent guide ( Nicholas ). Too much time was wasted at the first winery, which meant very little time in the village of St Emilion. A real shame when you consider that St Emilion is what the majority of us wanted to see. The village is stunning and we spent approx 30-40 mins at the village out of a 4 hour trip. In hindsight I would have been better off going by myself to St Emilion using public transport.
