    I had a wonderful time on this tour! Our guide Julie was passionate. Informed. And made the time come alive. The walk around Saint-Emilion was a lot of fun. It’s not a big place. But packed with interesting things to see. The two wineries we went to were gorgeous. The guides at both were very good. And the wine, well the wine was amazing! Our picnic lunch was very good as well. Six hours is a perfect amount of time. I highly recommend!

    Well worth it

    This was a good tour to take to visit St Emilion and learn about wine production. The host at the vineyard was really relaxed and informative. The free time to wander St Emilion was nice and we had lunch at a local boulangerie, the baguette was delicious! The tour guides were knowledgeable and friendly and the vehicles high spec, clean and comfy. I highly recommend this tour.
