Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had an amazing time with Angie. She was super knowledgeable and chatty and helped explain there was to know about bordeaux wines! The vineyards we went to were amazing as well. Plenty of wine tastings and a lovely lunch in the small beautiful village of saint emilion ! Will definitely recommend this to anyone !

I would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to get out of Bordeaux and explore the vineyards for the day! Comfortable combi with a very informative and knowledgeable driver Cam, who was from the area! Water was provided and we had great tastings at all the locations, including time to find a bite to eat in town. Would recommend potentially booking at one of the restaurants during peak season.

Excellent tour with a really knowledgeable and helpful guide. The guides at the respective stops were equally as engaging and it was an eye-opener for a wine newbie.

Our guide Charles pick us up in front of tourist office of Bordeaux and drove us 40 minutes to the first Chateaux while he was given us a quick sightseeing tour through bordeaux. Arriving at the first chateaux it was closed, Charles react in a super relaxed way, told us everything about that chateaux and took us to a new one.
In total we had a perfect day with 3 Chateaux, a tour through Saint Emilion and a very nice international group.

A very good excursion. Julie was very personable and knowledgable. The 3 vineyards we visited all offered something different to make it a well-rounded experience of Saint-Emilion wines. I would say it was slightly on the expensive side but a memorable trip regardless.

Overall we had a fantastic time with Karim (our guide) he was so knowledgeable of wine and really went the extra mile with educating us. Favorite part of the day was walking around St. Emilion, only wish we had just a tad bit more time during this part. But everything was just perfect, so happy to have chosen this excursion.
