And being able to speak English, French, Italian and Arabic, this means Säid can share his love of his city with so many people.

This was a absolutely wonderful experience! Both wines and cheeses were incredible! We had three glasses of wine and three different cheese boards for each wine with 5 samples on each!! Well worth the money! I would recommend this class to everyone. The restraint this class is held in is so beautiful and even has a cheese cellar you can go look at underneath!

Very enjoyable and informative. The wines and cheeses were delicious and the atmosphere was lovely and low key. We learned a lot and will try these pairings at home too.

An amazing tour! Said made everything interesting with historical explanations about Bordeaux and its monuments. I highly recommend it. It’s a must tour!!

Excellent presentation by the person in charge. Wine tasting with four varieties of wine was also excellent.
