We spent a half day touring around two wineries in Margaux wine region of Bordeaux. Our guide Delphine was lovely. She was very friendly, easy to speak to about wine (especially if you're not a wine expert) and was very knowledgeable. We toured Chateau Lascombs and Chateau Haut Breton Larigaudiere, walking through the wine process and sampling a few wines.... More

We booked the half day margaux wine tour. The guide we had was very knowledgeable and friendly. We visited two chateaus, the guide at the first chateaux was much more engaging than the second. We learned a lot on the tours but I realised that if we organised them ourselves it would only cost EUR7 each and the cost of... More

We just got back from Bordeaux and had 2 days with Ophorus wine tours. It was a fantastic two days and we loved it. We went to Medoc-Saint Emilion and Pomerol. If you want a great trip with a wonderful and fantastic tour, ask for Delphine. Delphine was the nicest person to our group and very, very knowledgable about the... More

Booked a one day tour as an alternative to a cruise ship offering. There were only two couples on the tour. The experience was better than the ship's tour, by all reports, as well as, not surprisingly, less expensive. The tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. The vineyard visits were outstanding. If we were to return we would book... More

My husband and I did a full day tour with Matt (Mathieu) as our guide. Everything about this tour was excellent. Matt is extremely knowledgeable about wines, the area, etc. He taught us so much throughout the day. Our vineyard visits were excellent and Matt recommended an excellent restaurant for lunch during our stop in St. Emilion. Highly recommend this... More

We added this tour at the very last minute to our 5 day stay in Bordeaux and could not be happier with the service and experience! Our guide, Mathieu, was incredibly well informed on every aspect of our wine day and, as others have pointed out, obviously has a very good relationship with the various establishments we visited. The tour... More

We did two full day wine tours with Ophurus. Both were excellent in all respects. Our guide for both days was Isabelle. Her English was excellent and she gave us a commentary on the region and how the various wines were grown and made. Absolutely fascinating. She taught us so much and made the visits special. We had 6 in... More

Our guide Isabelle was so knowledgeville and passoniate about the area, history and wines of this area. We have traveled the world in many wine areas and we learned more from Isabelle than all the others . We loved this tour!

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...
