    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.

    Our train got cancelled so we didn’t make it to the scheduled tour date but they called and asked if were coming and scheduled us the next day. Estelle is a really good guide, knows alot about wine and we enjoyed the tour very much. I Love this tour company. 100% recommend this

    If you are wanting to have time in St EmilIon to explore, this is not the right tour for you. The information we were given about the area and wines was all excellent. The picnic lunch was quite good. I had hoped we might visit at least one winery with prettier grounds, grand chateaux and take a walk into the vineyards a bit so that was a bit disappointing. I was also mistaken about how much time would be spent visiting St Emilion village but I also could have asked more questions about that before booking. In hindsight, I probably should have booked a tour that featured more time in the village, including some free time to explore and shop and maybe one tasting.
