Took the half day tour to Medoc and took in two chateaus as well as making drive-by stops at a couple other notable ones. Guide was very knowledgeable and provided a informative induction into Bordeaux wine, explaining in detailed but layman terms the various intricacies which moreover laid the groundworks for getting the most out of the private tours at...

We took an 8 hour tour of the Medoc region with Marion, who is one of the most knowledgeable and passionate tour guides we've ever had. We went to three different chateaus, and had a nice lunch in Paulliac, but we felt that the most valuable experience was from learning about French wines from Marion as we were travelling between...

We had a great day visiting the left bank of Bordeaux with the lovely Delphine. We toured the Medoc appellation, and stopped at 3 chateaux. She explained a little history about the region, the city if Bordeaux, and pointed out some of the Grand Cru 1iere classe chateaux, naming which company owned them, or if applicable, when the families actually...

This is one of the best tours I have had anywhere. The group were driven in a very comfortable Mercedes van by a young guide who was an excellent driver and had an encyclopaedic knowledge of the Bordeaux history and wine industry. She was informative and entertaining and her input made for a great day. Excellent value.

First - we know nothing about wine prior to our trip to Bordeaux - Ophorus helped us learn, taste and enjoy French wine. We (3 bothers and a wife) arrived in Bordeaux without a wine-tour plan. After some research we found Ophorus excursions and tours in France. After talking with them via phone we scheduled the 1/2 day tour to... More

Excellent experience there. Except different wine tasting, we also could learn a lot. After this tour i really can see much difference between the french and italian or portugal wineries. For me that' very interesting.The guide is very friendly too. 很值得推荐,沿途景色优美,每个酒庄都很不同。整个行程下来学到了很多新的东西,法国的酒庄真的和意大利,葡萄牙,西班牙,克罗地亚等地的酒庄区别很大。规模也要大的多。

Marion was quite knowledgeable of the entire wine-making process & was extremely patient in answering questions. Her command of the English language is excellent & her cheerful & playful attitude was refreshing & most welcomed.

We did 2 wine tours when we visited Bordeaux (a half day tour of St. Emilion and a full day tour of 3 chateau's on the left bank of the river (Medoc region). St. Emilion was a beautiful village full of restaurants, shops and wine stores so you'll have plenty to do. For 1.50 euros per person, you can climb... More

During our stay in Bordeaux, we went on two wine tours. We enjoyed them a lot! My favorite was the tour of Margaux. Delphine is a sweet girl, she is a great tour guide!

We did two tours with Ophorus during our stay in Bordeaux. One to St.Emillion and one to the Medoc region. Both guided by wonderfully knowledgeable and friendly guides that both spoke very good/excellent English. The vineyards we visited were lovely and didn't try to 'sell' to the tour but rather showed off their beautiful facilities and conducted very relaxed and... More
