A thoroughly enjoyable day visiting 2 vineyards and the charming town of St Emilion with informative explanations of wine making in the 2 Chateaux, tastings of the wine produced, a lovely lunch and an interesting visit to the sites in St Emilion - the highlight of our holiday to Bordeaux. The guide at the second Chateaux made the day for us with his generous spirit and hospitality. Tres bien!
This was a great tour. We started promptly at the time stated! Our tour guide, Laurence Pontallier was great! Very informative, funny and kind. She also kept us on our toes so we would not fall behind with the time. The winery's we visited were very informative. The second winery where we had a male guide was very funny and kept our attention! The food here was also great! Although this was a wine tour I found the old village of St Emillion the most interesting! We went down to the underground church and climbed the bell tower!! Went shopping in this town too!
The tour was excellent. There was lots of information from each vineyard without too much redundancy. The lunch was great with lots of wine! The tour through the underground church in St Emilion was impressive, and the free time in town to explore was nice.
Nous avons très apprécié la visite des vignobles, les dégustations et le lunch. C'est une région magnifique et à voir. Par contre, nous étions seuls francophone. Notre guide traduisait en français au début pour revenir rapidement à l'anglais. Nous aurions dû avoir les mêmes services. Nous avions acheté une excursion en français.
cTrès belle journée à Saint-Émilion. Visite de 2 domaines avec dégustation de très bons vins. Le lunch au Château Haut Sarp était délicieux et le village de Saint-Émilion était charmant. Je recommande vivement cette excursion!
The tour was ok. We went to two prestigious wineries and a small one. Lunch was great. Typical French food. Our tour guide was knowledgeable. Only down thing was the tour was in two language and I felt that some it was wasted saying same things in two language.
Tour was excellent, especially at chateau Figeac (may be spelled wrong). Lunch was decent. The only problem was the number of tastings. We tasted one wine at the first chateau, and 2 at the second. Very limited and at about $150 Euro for the first bottle, would have been nice to have more variety on offer. Still would recommend.
We had an hour to drive to get to the start point of this trip and even though we'd allowed 2 hours we still didn't make it in time to catch the bus. We rang the local organiser to get them to wait, but they would only give us 10 mins. Trip may have been good - we'll never know! Bordeaux however is a lovely destination in itself for a self guided tour ...
