Wonderful tour!

Our driver Radouane, was wonderful. Radouane picked us on time from our hotel in Bordeaux. He was very knowledgeable on wine and the entire region, as well as conversational, and kind. Our itinerary was great. We visited 3 chateau. Our favorite was Chateau Hourtin-Ducasse, a small, family-owned vineyard with a strong eco-friendly objective. Fun owner who helped us through our first ever wine tasting. Our organizer Daniel, set up great vineyards to visit and a beautiful lunch at a local restaurant.

Incredibly knowledgable guide, didn't stop learning!

Alain was amazing, not only did he teach us a plethora of facts about Bordeaux and the Medoc region- but wine in general. He had a great personality, and even had us laughing! The drive around the region was incredible, Alain taught us about aprox 50 different Vinyards in multiple appellations. The Chateaux tours were very well done, we were able to taste multiple types of wine, even within the same region. I would take another tour with him again, in a different region!

The Cristina guide is perfect: punctual, kind, friendly and knowledgeable about the region and wines. The tour went smoothly and safely, in an excellent car through 3 wonderful wineries with a delicious lunch in a small restaurant. Very good will, to make photos, nice chat. It left us very comfortable.

Well worth doing, small group in a comfortable mini van, Alex was our driver and was very informative about the region. We visited 3 Chateaus and had a lunch stop, lunch is not included in price.

Would recommend, great guide.

The guide was great and very informative. The only aspect we would reconsider is researching the region a little more to better understand the classification system.
