Our guide Mel from Bordeaux Wine Trails was fantastic. We loved the entire trip- the journey was quick, the two chateaus were beautiful and the guides/hosts were very friendly and had a wealth of knowledge to share. Saint Emilion is beautiful. We would recommend this tour to everyone.

Very well organized, informative, positive guide. Its a good tour, we were unlucky with the rain, but that is no one's fault. Wish maybe to have seen a bit more time on the wine production. Second stop felt a little bit more rushed at site compared to the first.

Wonderful history and insight into the foods of Bordeaux. Alexandre was friendly and well informed. It was a lot of fun and culminated in a lovely experience of pairing wines and foods! Recommended.

Our trip and our guide Nicolas was extremely informative and the best guide we could have ever asked for. Well worth the money. Would definitely take one of the chateau tours again

Great tour and our guide Pascal was very knowledgeable! Highly recommend to anyone who wants to learn about the region and the wine!!
