We took the Right and Left bank tour to Saint-Emilion and Medoc and it was so disappointing! Definitely won’t recommend this to anyone! Our driver Nicolas was yawning most of the time while he was talking, he sounded sleepy and drunk!! He only chit chatted to the passengers sitting next to him, when he should be sharing about the areas we were visiting! We didn’t go to Medoc as advertised, certainly didn’t do a tasting there. Not sure if he just drove past it, I don’t think so, and even if he did, we wouldn’t have known cos he did not say anything about it. We were just dropped at the vineyards in Saint-Emilion and Margaux and he probably went off to snooze after. He did not brief us anything about the vineyard, nor about the itinerary or the timing. If we wanted a driver to just bring us to the vineyards, we wouldn’t have paid so much to get on this tour!
I don’t understand how he made a wine tour so boring and lackluster! It’s a wine tour, for goodness sake!
This tour wasn’t cheap and we were looking forward to going to Medoc, not just Saint-Emilion. It was absolutely disappointing and a waste of time and money!
