Said is an excellent guide and makes your tour very enjoyable. He imparts his knowledge(which is extensive) in a passionate and enthusiastic manner. The tour included the major sites of Bordeaux but also some areas that are popular with locals and Said gave us a number of recommendations for us to visit in our own time. At the end of the tour Said ensured we had the right ticket for our tram to get back to our hotel. In summary I would definitely recommend this tour with Said

Saïd distinguishes himself as a guide through his enthusiasm, spontaneity and involvement with all participants. In addition, he has a lot of knowledge of the monuments and squares. He has a nice route for the early evening hours. Enjoyed taking part in this tour. I highly recommend this activity.

Great time ! Very informative — the guide and wine rep were personable and answered every question. The tasting was fun (would have liked some bread for palette cleansing). We also liked the time in the village.

Brilliant experience. Ben was our host and he was so professional and knowledgeable. The wine and cheese were incredible . Beautiful restaurant have a look downstairs.

The price was exorbitant. Mitigated by excellent guide.
