Our tour with Frederic was fantastic! The wine country is stunningly gorgeous and we learned so much about wine and the wine business. Frederic is highly knowledgable and tailors the trip to what you want to learn about and experience. Every stop on the tour gave us amazing sights, delicious wine, and interesting information.

Our ship docked in Bordeaux and we had booked a day tour visiting 3 chateaus, plus a tour of the historic village of St Emillion. The process of booking was very easy. We communicated with Frédéric by email and he provided us the various options for day trips and we decided on the Bordeaux Slopes tour, visiting 2 chateaus in... More

I booked Frederic because of his amazing reviews and he didn't disappoint. We wanted a private, personal yet informative tour and that's exactly what we got.

Frederic picks you up where you are staying, helps you choose your preferred itinerary and knows the good places to visit where the owners or their representatives will make your visits to the wine chateaux a very personal experience. His choice of restaurants for lunch is wonderful! Frederic is an excellent guide to what there is to know about Bordeaux... More

Even on Bastille day Frederic took the time to show us how Bordeaux looks like. A few hours on the west coast to see the oyster farming was probably the highlight for me. Tasting + the wine + the stories = perfect. After that we had a visit to Ch. DESMIRAIL where a charming host showed us how they did... More

My husband and I took a private tour of three chateaux in St. Emilion with Frederic during our visit to the Bordeaux area this past winter. While it was a chilly, foggy day, Frederic's knowledge and passion for all things French wine made up for it! We had private tours with the wine makers, learned about and tasted some very... More

We were lucky enough to book Frederic on our recent trip to Bordeaux. He brought an amazing amount of knowledge about the area's region, wine and industry history (prior to giving tours, he spent 20 years as a winemaker). More importantly, he provided his insight in a fun and non-pretentious way. Unfortunately for us, due to our travel schedule, we... More
