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 .

We opted for the half day tour, which comprised a visit to two chateaus in Margaux. Our guide for the afternoon was excellent, very friendly, very knowledgable, and provided a very interesting tour, whilst being more than happy to explain any basics. We stopped for a quick look round at the entrance of the famous Chateau Margaux, before then heading... More

Upon our first visit to Bordeaux, we were introduced to Ophorus by the visitor center of Bordeaux. The guide, David, was very knowledgeable, friendly and informative. Clearly he knows quite a bit about wine and the Bordeaux region. We learned alot, enjoyed the chateaux and wine store he introduced us, as well as the free time we got to spend... More

This is an excellent tour if you are on a short stay in Bordeaux. The group is really small and personal, and the guide Marion is very good indeed. In a small van she will take you around the Vineyards and village of St.Emilion, with a very interesting level of detail about the various chateaux and their production methods and... More

My parents and I recently visited Bordeaux and were fortunate enough to get to go on the "Grand Cru Chateau & St Emilion Half Day" Tour. Our guide, Marion, was enthusiastic and extremely well informed. She was always around for questions and made sure everyone in the group was involved and understood the wine-making process and history. This was an... More

From our punctual 10am pick up to drop off at the Bordeaux Tourism Office, David our guide for the day, gave the most interesting and informative commentary on the St Emillion and Pomerol wine districts touching on other wine growing areas throughout France and throwing in some personal history which totally qualified him as a tour guide for such a...

Our small group of 8 was led by Dave who had excellent knowledge of wine making and the history of Bordeaux. I never really understood much about French wines but with Dave's informative commentary on the way there and the excellent Chateau tours and tastings he organised, I felt comfortable in purchasing a half case each of the best two...
