The tour is well designed with the two wine regions of Médoc and Saint-Émilion. The guides in the Châteus, some of whom are brand new, are a bit disappointing. The wine tastings offer no more than standard bottles, some freshly opened, which is not really possible with red wine. Overall, I would recommend the tour because of the variety of impressions, even if it is a bit too expensive for what is on offer.

We had a GREAT time with Estelle on our tour. She was very knowledgeable, friendly, and went out of her way to ensure that we all had an enjoyable day and a memorable experience. She went above and beyond to talk about not just the regions but the wines, and even pastries too! The best guide we have had on a tour! She also had a great relationship with the staff at each chateau, making it in turn a more personal experience. Five stars!
