What people are saying about Nouvelle-Aquitaine

This was an outstanding activity to do in the Bordeaux area. We were picked up right outside our apartment by our fantastic host. I'm very sorry but I can't remember his name. He was brilliant, knowledgeable, funny and a great tour guide. The motorbike/side car was a very memorable way to see Saint Emilion and the surrounding countryside of the Bordeaux region. The wine tour and tasting at the chateau was also very good and very cool, we learned alot about the wine making process and the caves underneath the chateau were very cool to see! We were dropped off back at our apartment and given some local recommendations for food and drink. I can't recommend this enough. Definitely worth doing whilst in the area! Thank you so much for a memorable experience!

Fabulous! Exceeded our expectations as it was a small group (6 people) and our driver Karim was attentive, engaging and fun. We visited 2 very different and contrasting wineries in Margaux.

Our guide was friendly and very informative. The tastings were lovely and he recommended a fabulous restaurant for lunch that we really enjoyed.

Great time, the kids and I loved it. Our guides were top notch. Thanks a lot. We will return.

A great experience, totally worth the money. Superbly hosted. Well recommended
