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

My wife and I went on two separate tours: Great Cabs of the Medoc and Saint Emilion. Before going on the tours we had concerns that they would get stale, just visiting a series of wineries. Not the case at all! Mathieu, our guide for both full-day tours, put together a great itinerary that included three very different and distinct... More

It was a nice trip and we were so glad from our guide tour Isabelle because she had an infinite energy to talk (explain many things in a fluent and understandable way). She was also friendly. Wine tasting in Chateau Souhard was very nice and St.Emillion is a wonderful place still "alive" since medieval times. Thanks for all.

We booked a day tour to the Medoc region with Ophorus Tours and it was simply out of the world!!! Our guide, Marion eased us into the tour with her enthusiastic and cheerful disposition and she was extremely knowledgeable about all you need to know about the Bordeaux wine area. The whole tour was also extremely comfortable in an air-conditioned... More
