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.

We enjoyed a half day tour to St Emillion. We had planned to go ourselves but getting to St Emillion by public transport isn't easy. We were picked up and dropped off at Tourist office. It's a small group and Dave was a very informative guide. We did a tasting in a wine merchants in St E as well as... More

Our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. In addition to a well organized visit to a vineyard, our half day visit included time in the village of St Emilion. If you are interested in seeing the monolithic church, which I was, make sure to inquire in advance. The Bordeaux tourist office neglected to tell me that it was not part... More

Fantastic 5 hour visit to the St Emilion area, with several wine tastings at a couple of different locations - plus chance to visit the beautiful village of St Emilion. Our guide was Marion - she was excellent. Her English is fluent. She is full of interesting and useful information and is a real pleasure to listen to. She takes... More

We booked our tour a few days before, and chose the half day Saint Emilion Grand Cru tour. Our guide Brice, was very nice and knew a lot about the area. We first went to Château Soutard, which was a very pretty estate just outside Saint Emilion. The local tour guide took us through the production process, which was mostly... More

We had a brilliant tour of a vineyard and enjoyed a walk in the lovely cobbled old town. Our guide Dave was extremely knowledgeable and we would recommend booking him through the Bordeaux Tourist Office.
