Amélie was a wonderful tour guide. Lovely and smiley. Very informative about the buildings we passed and their history. Chatty but not forcing conversation just letting it flow. She took us to a wonderful restaurant for lunch and a wine tasting else where. Also stopped off at some great sweet dessert places. She also gave us names of restaurants and bars to visit while we are in bordeaux.

Lucie was an outstanding tour guide and ambassador for Bordeaux. She took us all through the old city sharing many great facts and stories along the way. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a great tour of Bordeaux.

This was a really enjoyable experience. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys cheese and wants to try some new wine parings. The cheese cave was very impressive.

A must-do for any wine enthusiast (or novice). Julie was a superb guide and the staff at both wineries were so welcoming and knowledgable.

The best was our incredibly talented guide, Karim.
