I was an excellent experience overall. The only blemish on the tour is no fault of the tour operator. The second and third winery guide was not pleasant, especially for the fact that when pouring the wine for the tasting, all 3 kinds, he gave me and my partner less than what he gave the others.

Jérome is an excellent expert in vignoble et vin. Il nous a emmener visiter deux domaines et trois caves. (2 son sur le même domaine). Les explications sonr complètes et agréablement ponctuée par deux dégustations. Entre les deux dégustations il ya la visite de St Emilion. Grand merci pour cette excellent après-midi.

The tour was amazing!!! We are so glad we booked this and not just drive up ourselves and wonder. Our guide Jerome was awesome. He was charming,spoke perfect English and was really informative. He was a really cool fella. The chateau tours are super pretty. The work that goes into these places are unbelieveable. We learnt so much about the grapes, terrior, vac machines, the process etc....SO COOL and most importantly...the wines tasted GREAT.. Do this tour, you won't be dissapointed.
