Lovely Day
May 2018 • Couples
Helene, so much more than a tour guide, she made our wine tasting trip such an enjoyable one, her knowledge on the region and the wine is second to none and she went out of her way to ensure our day was fabulous! The Saint Emiliion tour took us to four Chateaux and was a thoroughly enjoyable day. We highly recommend this day out and having Helene as your guide would be a definite bonus.

Apr 2018 • Couples
Typically, I avoid such tours. I was so glad my wife, sister-in-law and I joined this one. It was an extraordinary experience which included a tour of the Gaudet winery in St Emilion. Our guide for the entire day was Karim who was knowledgeable of wines and the region. He was thoroughly engaging. I cannot recommend this one strongly enough.

An excellent wine tasting day
Bruno was at the airport to meet us off our flight from London. The mini bus was spacious and clean. We had lunch at the Lard at Bouchon which was lovely, very unusual dishes, I have posted separately about this Restuarant.

In the afternoon we visited a traditional winery, chateau Guadet and then chateau de Ferrand. Quite different. Bruno was most curtious and very knowledgeable about Bordeaux wines.

Disappointing tour
We had booked this tour based on the small "group" idea, which is true.... but not really.

We were 8 people in our van for our day trip, however, we were two vans travelling together so we were actually 16 for the tours. It was also unfortunate that when we arrived for our tasting in St. Emilion, we actually waited outside the door of the winery for over 30 minutes with no explanation. We where then informed that there was a mix up and could not visit the winery. We instead went on a scattered walk around the town while the guide scrambled with what to do with us. He decided to leave us for lunch early with 3 hrs to kill. It was extremely unfortunate that this is the tour we booked... not very professional
