What people are saying about Saint-Émilion

Our guide, Jerome, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the area and the wines and production, rating, and all other aspects. Jerome was very courteous and helpful as it was raining all day, he did his best to make sure that he parked where we wouldn’t be walking in the rain too much. The entire tour was fun and very interesting. Even though we have been on several different wine tours in the past, we learned several things on this tour. We were very glad we took this tour and are going to make sure to recommend it to our friends.

As part of the tour, we had three wine tastings in the St. Emilion region. The wine was amazing. As a bonus, we were able to have a chocolate tasting and toured the church. The guide, Jerome (sp?), was highly knowledgeable and spoke excellent English.

Wonderful experience! Visiting 3 chateaus was amazing and with a trip to the Saint Emilion town it was definitely worth the price. Would highly recommend!

The guide was fun, had the knowledge, was interested and kept everyone talking and asking questions.

Amazing tour, our guide was very helpful and really know about the wine.
