A really good tour. I recommend it because you get to visit a couple of vineyards, learn about how they make wine in Bordeaux and you get a guided tour though St Emilion village, which seems hard to get to unless you are driving. It might be hard to organise all these thing yourself. Our guide Remi was excellent. He was really knowledgeable and provided us with a lot of info. He was patient and took his time.

We had an amazing time on this trip! Arnaud was brilliant, very knowledgeable and friendly! He couldn’t do enough for you! The trip is well worth the money and the chateaux’s are gorgeous. St Emilion is also beautiful! Definitely recommend! Thanks La Francaise team!

A well organised and extremely informative tour maybe a little pricey but I learnt more on this tour than a day at Bordeaux wine museum. Our guide Carole answered every question and our group had many which made us run a little late. Would of loved to buy a bottle of the wine we tasted and drunk it within the grounds of the château and I’m sure the rest of our group would’ve done the same. Perhaps worth adding to this tour.
