“Half-day Medoc trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Based on reviews here we decided to book a half-day Medoc wine tour before setting off for Bordeaux in August. Unfortunately it was a Monday when the wine blending centre was closed (I had especially wanted to go there) but the chateaux we were taken to were impressive to say the least! I enjoyed the tour as we were in a small varied group of 8 people which made the visits more personal. Above all, however, it was our guide, Chloe, who made the day with her extremely personable manner, interesting commentary and genuine desire to give us all a very good experience.

“A nice day out in Bordeaux”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

A tour was very nice. Our guide was very helpful and informative. A small group of 7 people. We are very thankful for waiting us as we were late for 40 minutes because of the traffic jam. Wine makers are very friendly.

“Medoc/St Emilion tour & tasting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

These tours were very good thanks, in our case, to our guide Nicholas. He was very knowledgeable and gave very pertinent information about the region and its history. I highly recommend that if anyone is taking these tours that they ask for him. His driving skills are excellent, in view of the heavy traffic we sometimes encountered.

We highly recommend the St. Emilion tours, especially because of the quality of the wines, but also because of the tour of the town and catacombs that were part of the tour. Again, Nicholas was able to go into details about the ruins that were very interesting.

As an aside, it would be a good idea for Bordeaux 360 to include a few crackers or pieces of bread for eating after the tastings. A small bit of wine goes a long way towards indigestion on an empty stomach. Also the price may seem high to those considering taking a Bdx 360 tour,
but these wineries are quite far from Bordeaux, and there really is no way to visit more than two
each time. And it really beats trying to go there on your own!

“Wonderful Day Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

We had a delightful trip on July 9th to the town of St Emilion, with winery stops in St Emilion and Pomerol. Our guide, Chloe, was excellent. This was a van tour with 8 participants. We did end up in the rear, as someone must, and the only suggestion I'd give would be to have the guides commentary on a speaker system as we couldn't hear everything. Of course, part of that is our American ears. For our group, the entire trip was in English. The visit to the carved church in St. Emilion was nothing short of amazing. The wineries chosen were great choices. We took a bottle with us from Pomerol and enjoyed it a few days later in Luz St Sauveur. We are contacting the owner to order more! Great trip and highly recommended for a taste of both the wineries and the history of the area.
