Really well organised and enjoyable day. 8 people per tour so you get to ask questions, you aren’t crowded and don’t feel rushed. It was a really relaxed and informative day. Everyone was so kind and keen to help and answer questions. I’d thoroughly recommend it! Not as much walking as I though and not as much wine (so don’t expect to come back drunk!)

Nice trip out to St Emilion from Bordeaux. It was raining all day for our trip so this did affect our enjoyment! “Pastry included” is very misleading - we got a quarter of a macron in a shop as a “taster”. Wine samples were only a couple of mouthfuls but I guess this is to be expected. Very nice to see vineyards and hear how the wine is produced.

LOTS of info, which was terrific. Interesting to compare old and new wineries. Estelle was very efficient. The 9 a.m. tour was a bit too early for Q&A, but still fun. Our guide at the winery, Morgan, was marvelous. Tasting was terrific. Interestingly, neither I nor my 2 Irish companions on the tour were knocked out by the most expensive wine. Morgan was not at all snobby.
