Staff is great but too much time spent on background. We all wanted tasting, and more tasting!!! I would prefer hitting at least 4 wineries or more.
This was my first wine trip with Viator. I was very impressed Sandrine our tour guide and with her knowledge of region and her enthusiasm and passion for wine.
Not worth your time if you are interested in a day long wine tasting tour. The guide was very knowledgable however it felt that she was just talking at the group for the whole day even on the bus ride out to the vineyards it was non stop talking and because there was a different group that joined us after lunch, she pretty much just went over everything she had already told us in the morning. The morning part was far too long. We were in a Museum from 9.45am - 11.15am, and the guide talked us through every point where there were many times where the info was already written on the wall displays. We just walked through Bordeaux city to a restaurant after -The lunch was good, however it wasn't a wine tasting match as stated on the itinerary. We had one bottle of wine per table of 4 people and the wine was pre chosen and not explained at all. The wineries we were taken to 2 in total were very average and the busload of people meant everyone was trying to get a taste of a wine all at the same time. Seems a bit of a shame when you're in one of the best wine regions in the world. If you are under 40 this likely isn't the wine tour for you!
the introductory part in Bordeaux was very informative and the luncheon was delicious... and the tour of the Chateau was lovely. I just wish we had more time in St. Emilion for our own exploring!
Great tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Christine seamlessly provided information about Bordeaux, its wine history, and the Bordeaux wine region in both English and in French. We toured a wine museum in Bordeaux in the morning, ate a nice lunch in a local restaurant, and visited two chateaus in the Medoc region in the afternoon. Definitely a great experience for the value!
Excellent tour! A great deal for the money - 9am til 6pm - and a museum and two chateau included with two wine tastings at each place plus a wonderful lunch with more wine there. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very competent for a bilingual tour. For students, the price was a little daunting at first, but we were easily able to follow the descriptions in French and came away very satisfied from a full day very much worth the money. Learned a ton, got to see a lot outside of the city of Bordeaux. Overall an excellent experience.
