    René was very nice and clear. He knew a lot about wineries and Bordeaux as a city, great to hang out with a local like him. Each winery had something to new to learn about which kept us interested at each stop. For lunch, getting to taste different cheese and meat was very fun, however the main was quite simple for the price. I wouldn’t take this tour in winter though, you miss most of the pretty landscapes and beautiful sights. But overall definitely a good experience to have for those who enjoy wine. :)

    It's been a very fulfilling day. In the morning, we visited Saint-Emilion and wineries, and visited the church of Saint-Emilion to learn about the history of wine. Then return to Bordeaux in the afternoon for a light lunch. Again, I was able to enjoy my favorite wine and enjoy the tapas-style a la carte slowly. After finishing lunch while enjoying conversations with people from all over the world, we went to Margaux in the afternoon. Visited 3 wineries, healed by the shooting of Chateau Margaux's chateau and the surrounding scenery. It seems that it was past 18:00 when we returned to Bordeaux after the tour of the winery and the tasting, just like in the morning. Although the price is higher than other tours, this one-day tour of the wines of the Bordeaux region is condensed into one day, so it is highly recommended that you participate. There is no additional charge for participating alone. If it is a tour in your own country, you will have to pay twice as much, but don't

    Met at the Olala Bordeaux for the tour. We ended up having a private tour as our group (3 people) was the only one signed up for the full day tour. Headed off to Saint Emilion for the wine tasting at two different chateaus. Then we took a foot tour of Saint Emilion, which was just amazing! The cutest historic town with beauty at every turn and in every little nook. Then back to the Olala for a lunch featuring local fair. Then our same tour guide took us and 4 other people on the afternoon tour to the Medoc region. We tasted wine at two other chateaus and stopped at another for a photo opportunity. It was great to be able to taste wine from two different regions to be able to compare. We then loaded back into the van for the trip back to Bordeaux.
