We used the services of Mary at Decanter Tours for the second time. Two years ago she put together an amazing day in Bordeaux. There were close to 30 in our group. This year, she worked with us to put together three days of incredible tours for our group which numbered from 35 to 59 people depending on the day.... More

Mary was our guide and host for a group of us and took us around Marseille, Cassis, the Bandol region and to Avignon. She picked amazing wineries to visit, delicious lunches and a fantastic tour through the city of Marseille. Her knowledge was wonderful, her accent charming and she did everything with a sense of humor! I greatly enjoyed our... More

I had a truly amazing day of learning about Bordeaux's wines and how to taste them - it was the perfect mix of information and fun, Mary being an excellent guide. I'd recommend this for anyone and everyone who is at all interested in wine!

We had 5 days in Bordeaux. Decanter Tours provided excellent personalised SUV tours on 2 days of the Medoc one day and St Emilion/Pomerol the next. Highly recommended and good value.

We spent two days with Caroline Matthews from Decanter Tours, a charming Irish woman living in Bordeaux. One day was spent on the Right Bank, another on the left. Caroline proved to have a vast knowledge of the region, the history of the chateaux, their classifications, vintages, soil varieties and all the aspects of the wine making process. Through Decanter... More

Mary was a great host and made our wine tour both educational and fun. Our group enjoys wine, but we are far from experts. Mary tailored the tour to us and helped us learn about the region without confusing us for wine connoisseurs. The travel from chateau to chateau can be a decent drive, but Mary made sure we were...

Mary knows her stuff! I brought out a group of 8 people who had never been to Bordeaux before and were about to embark upon a 48 hour tour of seven châteaux. It was imperative that they had a good grasp of what Bordeaux is all about, and Mary gave that to them. Whether historical, geographical or sensory, the information... More

We had a wonderful time with Mary in Bordeaux. She was recommended by wine friends from the Napa Valley and we could not have had a better guide. Mary is an American who has lived in France for a long time. She was incredibly warm and friendly with us. At the same time, she was treated with great respect by... More

Our trip to Rioja, in October of 2013, was our third trip organized by Mary Dardenne of Decanter Tours. Prior trips include Bordeaux and Tuscany. The trip was outstanding. It had the wonderful balance of education in regional wines, cultural, and history. Mary took the time to understand what we were looking for in our vacation and delivered again.
