We had a very enjoyable day out on an Ophorus tour in June, visiting two chateaux in total (Chateau Soutard in St. Emilion, and Chateau de Sales in Pomerol), as well as stopping off in the beautiful, atmospheric little village of St. Emilion itself for lunch and a wander around. Our tour guide Isabelle was very knowledgeable and attentive throughout,... More

Guides are helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Small groups meant a more personal and cosy experience, but there is a little bit of the “hard sell” approach when it comes to various vineyards – but this could be advantage if you are looking to buy wines on the tour. Would recommend this tour group, they are very organised and professional.

We did two full day tours, one to St. Emilion and Pomerol with Isobel and one to Medoc with Marion. Both tours were worth every penny and both ladies excellent tour guides. I usually don't like to do group tours but these were the best I have ever been on. You are not rushed and are left to explore the... More

We had a lovely day-tour of St. Emilion and surrounding areas. Boris was a wonderful guide, and took us to two chateaus, a lovely lunch and wander around the old village of St. Emilion, and then a tasting at a very nice wine-shop. The prices in the shop were very competitive ,and each of us went home with six bottles... More

We booked an all day tour of St. Emilion with Ophorus and ended up having a private tour in a nice new van with Isabelle. We enjoyed the day visiting interesting wine producers and exploring the underground church in St. Emilion. We had a delicious lunch in the village and she arranged for us to have a private tasting at... More

Very informative, a bit of walking but lots of wine tasting. Some pairing at certain chateaus, especially loved the canneles.

To see the beautiful vineyards of France and taste their wines definitely makes for a pleasant day but what made this tour extra special was our guide, Isabelle. She spent every second of our ride there and back, sharing with us her vast knowledge about wine making and the environs. We learned so much .
