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 a fantastic half day tour to the Medoc region. Kareem was our tour guide and he was so knowledgeable - we learned so much about Bordeaux, Medoc, wines, and so many other topics. The chateaus we visited were both great and we sampled some delicious wine. Kareem was friendly, fun, and went absolutely out of his way to make sure we felt comfortable and taken care of throughout the trip - and he had a fun game planned for the ride home! We had a great time and definitely would recommend this tour to anyone else interested in learning more about Bordeaux wines. Thanks, Kareem!

This was a great trip and well worth doing. It was easy to find the meeting place and we left promptly at the designated time. Our guide Angie was the best. She went above and beyond and even offered lots of local restaurant and bar suggestions. The van was new, clean and comfortable. We visited 2 vinyards. First one only let us taste 2 wines and one of those was 2nd production. Second one let us try 3 wines. Would have given 5 star if there were more wines to try as I've tried up to 6 at other trips.

To ensure we see the best of Bordeaux, we booked both half day trips to St Emilion and Medoc. The Medoc was definitely our favourite. We visited the appelation of Margaux (very famous!) and got to visit 2 large estates with a drive by Chateau Margaux!
As it was our first time in Bordeaux we opted for the tours to help us navigate ourselves. Our tour guide, Emily, was lovely and well informed with quite a lot of local stories and anecdotes to share.
We'd have liked exposure to a few more places to try (and buy) wine from Medoc but all in all a great way to see the area and experience a taste of Bordeaux wines.

Went with a group of friends on the half-day afternoon tour. We had a great time! Emilie was a knowledgable and personable guide, and she made us feel very welcome as she explained local history, tradition, and winemaking practices with us. We visited two chateaus in the Medoc valley, where we were given a tour of the vat rooms ans cellars. We also tasted two reds at each one. The transportation to/from the chateaus was a comfortable 9 person van, equipped with a mic system so the guide could speak to the guests seated in the back too. And, as a special treat, on the way back we got to put our noses to the test with a wine aroma guessing game! All in all, we had a lovely afternoon and learned a lot. Thanks Emilie for the tour!

We had a great tour of the Margaux appellation visiting Chateau Prieve Lichine and Chateau Lascombes. Our guide, Luigi, was brilliant. He was very warm and friendly and provided us with a great overview of wine production in the region in a fun and informative way. We got to try a few lovely grand crus too! The tour was the highlight of our trip to Bordeaux. Thanks Luigi!

The wine tasting was from off years. Not much wine to taste and no cheese/meat with the tadting. Felt cheap. The tour guide was pretty good - did not say much on the way back. The tour guide did some nice basic explanation of wine and classifications.

Had an excellent day visiting 3 vineyards with our guide Helene, who must be the most passionate and excitable person when it comes to Bordeaux wine! Helene also has very good knowledge about the various vineyards and went out of her way to make sure we had an enjoyable day. It was very interesting to visit the different classes of vineyards and see the differences in technology used...and finance available!

Small group into the Medoc visited some beautiful chateaux and enjoyed the Drive into the countryside although quite flat was scenic
Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable
The wines were not to our taste and had we known only very heavy red wines would be offered we would not have taken the trip
