Went on an 8 hour tour from Bordeaux to Pomerol and St. Emillion in a small group of six people. This tour was excellent for taking you to chateaus that are very intimate and special. The owners of these chateaus and vineyards are excellent at talking about there fine wines and we had many tastings.

During our week in Bordeaux, we used two different groups recommended here on TripAdvisor for wine tours in the region and would unquestionably recommend Ophorus over the other group, which is currently ranked higher in the TripAdvisor ranking. We had a good time on both tours, but our full-day visit to the Medoc with Ophorus was just far superior...and this... More

My partner and I did the full day tour to Saint-Émilion and Pomerol, with Boris as our guide. He was very knowledgeable both about the wine and the Bordeaux region in general, and made our tour great fun. We tasted a good range of different wines and visited some beautiful chateaus. I would highly recommend this tour.

My husband and I took two full day tours with this company and enjoyed them both very much. Day one was St. Emilion, the winery tours were combined with a tour of the town and historic areas. We had a great guide Marion, who knew the area well and provided great information about the local area. She also encouraged us... More

We had pre-booked the full day St Emilion and Pomerol wine tour through Viator, and it was absolutely excellent. Isabelle, our guide, was very well-informed and enthusiastic and we learned a great deal in the course of the day. The two vineyard visits were contrasting and both very interesting - the Pomerol more traditional in a beautiful chateau, the St... More

My wife and I have just returned from a ten day French holiday. While in the exquisite city of Bordeaux, we decided to take a half day (five hour) tour outside of the city to the glorious wine country of Saint Emillion. We booked with Ophorus and were met by our guide, Isabelle. She was both congenial and highly competent.... More

With basic knowledge of Bordeaux and Bordeaux wines I found a half day tour with Ophorus to be a real success. I highly recommend it. I booked it through the tourist information. Ask for Dave to get a guide with a vast knowledge and a great way to share it.

We had an amazing day out with Dave on the wine tour. He took us to some wonderful chateaux and knew so much about the history of Bordeaux and wine, and seemed to have great friendships with the employees of the wineries. Luckily for us, no one else came on the tour so it was just me and my partner!... More

We made a great MEDOC full-day tour . Brice was our guide and could not be better. Extensive knowledge of the region and wine production but above all a great person. Thanks for a great day in this wonderful place.

We took two tours with Ophorus and Isabelle was our guide both times. She was great, we learned so much about how the grapes were grown, how the wine was made and tasted lots of really wonderful wines.
