Fredric went above and beyond any expectations that I had before starting this tour. My friends and I had a beautiful and fun day visiting three very different and distinct chateaus, which each had very friendly and welcoming owners. We learned a lot about wine, we laughed a lot, and we had a great time with Fredric. I would without... More

Knowledgable, informative and an excellent low key introduction to the food and wine in Bordeaux. Frederic was accommodating, courteous, unhurried and pleasant company for our long day tour. We would highly recommend him both for those with little knowledge of wines and the area as well as those who are well versed in the delights of the region.

My husband and I are beyond happy that we chose to spend a day touring châteaus with Frédéric Borliachon. We were pleasantly surprised by his proposed itinerary since it was perfectly tailored to our needs and accommodated our requests/budget. What first impressed us with Frédéric was our initial email correspondence prior to the trip. He truly sought to understand our... More

Thank you Frederic for an incredible day of wine, food and beautiful chateaux! Frederic delivers everything promised and more (at one winery the tour was given by the owner who then invited us into his personal residence which was an amazing chateau built in 1865!) I think Frederic's passion for wine and knowledge of the region is what makes his... More

This was one of the best days I've had on a holiday recently, it was just absolutely perfect. I was with two of my girlfriends from London. I looked into many tours but it felt to me that Frederic was offering something very unique and special. We considered joining a bigger tour but it wasn't that much cheaper to do... More

Highly recommended. Frederic customized the trip for us: we asked for a sampling of different wine-making personalities and styles in the area. We saw "homemade" wine making and also very professional and marketed wines. It was a good mix of chateaux, and Frederic did well to explain the region and it's people, the complex classifications, and the business/money side of... More

I can't stress enough what a fantastic day we had with Frederic. After making initial contact, he was booked on the day we wanted to do the tour. However, he checked with the other couple who had booked him and we shared the tour which only added to the enjoyment. We didn't have transport but Frederic was happy to pick... More

We made a last minute trip to Bordeaux on a cold Sunday morning and were so fortunate to have Frederic as our guide. He was patient (we knew next to nothingn about wines), knowledgeable (not just wine, but also history, culture, etc) and funny! Even though it was a Sunday and chateau options were limited, Frederic managed to pick three... More
