What a brilliant experience from start to finish! Picked up in Bordeaux by our guide, Andrew, and driven out to the beautiful St Emilion, we were given a quick briefing about what the day would entail then got on our electric bikes and rode out to the first chateau. We visited two different chateaus, one in Pomerol and one in St Emilion. At each we were treated to a tour and a tasting along with learning about the history and process that goes into making quality Bordeaux wine. The electric bikes were an absolute dream, particularly as the temperature reached a scorching 37 Celsius, but with the help of the bikes it wasn't too strenuous! After our second tasting we had lunch consisting of a charcuterie board and a glass of wine from the second Chateau, this was brilliantly put together and totally delicious. We then cycled back to St Emilion for a final tasting at a local wine merchant and a walking tour of the village. Altogether we tried 10 separate, quality wines. As a guide, Andrew was exceptional, his knowledge and enthusiasm was constant throughout the day and he really added an extra dimension to a really well put together tour. Bravo, this tour was the highlight of our trip!
Top tip: don't be put off booking because the weather is hot, we were kept well hydrated (with water as well as wine) and the bikes do a lot of the work for you!

Such a great experience riding bikes through the vineyards in Saint Emilion! I don’t think there could be any better way to experience the scenery, wine tasting and all round beauty this town has to offer. Our guide Tim was full of knowledge and we learnt so much about wine and the region over the day. 100% recommend this tour if you visit Bordeaux, it was a day to remember!

We had a fantastic day with Tim and his team! The tour was relaxed, very informative, just the right size (10) and we visited some stunning Chateaus. We tried some amazing wines all made locally and finished off our tour with a special wine tasting in a local wine specialists and a walk around the city. Our lunch was Tapas style, meat, cheese and accompaniments. All of this was was with a Chateau special wine.

We booked this tour via the internet from Canada. We booked a private 2 day tour; a driving tour of Medoc on day 1 and a e-bike tour of St. Emilion on day 2, for 4 people (2 couples). You are always a bit nervous booking sight unseen. This was as advertised however. Andrew (our guide) was outstanding; knowledgeable, personable and entertaining. The wineries they took us to were outstanding; tolerant of our questions and interesting to speak with. Rustic has a great rapport with the vineyards and that made the tours exceptional. We learned about the region, the wines, tasted great wines, saw great locations (old churches, rode bikes through vineyards). They customized the experience, were thoughtful of our preferences, the tour was well paced for time and we were never bored. There is really nothing negative any of us could say about the whole experience. We (all 4 of us) highly recommend it. I would come back and use them again for tours.

A truly enjoyable, highly informative and interesting insight into the viticulture surrounding the historical region. Our guide Tim was warm, well versed, approachable and went to great detail in delivering a crash course on the art of winemaking. The chateaus were great as both hosts were very welcoming and thorough with their tours. The walkthrough the historical town of St Emilion with Tim was also worthwhile and picturesque. Definitely worth a place in anyone's itinerary whilst visiting Bordeaux. Highly recommended.

Tim, the owner was fabulous. From the moment we arrived at the agency in Bordeaux to going by van to the town of Saint-Emilion. He shared with us the history of the city of Bordeaux as well as the region. He was awesome at explaining the the different varieties of grapes and the rankings of the chateau's in the area. The town of Saint-Emilion was lovely and being in the countryside on electric bikes a joy. Tim had cold water available to us at all times during our hot day. We stopped at two vineyards and had private tours of their properties. At each vineyard we tasted four wines and had a lovely picnic with meats and cheeses provided by Tim. Back at the agency in St. Emilion, Tim and his colleague allowed us to taste six more wines from the region. Then we went on a walk to see the church and little town. This was our best experience in Bordeaux, we would highly recommend booking this tour. It was well priced and very comprehensive.

We booked this activity last minute and it was the best part of our holidays! Both Tim and our guide (sorry don't remember the name!) were amazing. They explained everything and our guide made our bike trip so enjoyable and fun!
Definitely recommend it to get to know and understand more about the amazing French wine and the lovely vine yards.
Our guide made sure to keep us laughing along the way while telling us every little bit of history/wine information you need. We found out actually he was Saint Emilion's locals favorite tour guide and it's not hard to understand why!
The electric bikes guaranteed that we could enjoy our wine without any concerns as well.
The picnic was lovely and can't even start to describe the wine :)
Lovely little business with amazing people running it!

Tim is an absolute hero - there is no better way to spend your day in Saint-Emilion than with his company. We misread the morning departure time and he rode his bike completely out if his way to make sure we still had the opportunity to join the tour. It really shows his commitment to his customers.

Specific to the tour, it’s an unmatched experience. From the in depth knowledge of wine and regional history to the individual chateau visits and tastings - don’t miss this opportunity. The ebikes are new and give you the ability to travel lengths at ease.

Specific to the Chateau visits, the winemakers showed us an unbelievable time, from tasting ‘wine in progress’ to the in and out of the production. It’s amazing to see the complexity of the process and the nuances in making great wine.

I could go on but there is definitely no other company you should be visiting this city with.

An amazing experience - one I’ll never forget. To be able to see all that we saw and learn so much about the wines and the area was an experience of a lifetime. So many little roads with twists and turns our guide expertly navigated us down and to pass so many beautiful wineries and vistas. The lunch setting was straight out of a movie and the food and drink were divine. Highly recommend and would again next time in Bordeaux.

Can't say much more than other reviews already have - an absolutely wonderful afternoon that I will cherish.

The wine we sampled was delicious and the picnic was carefully tailored. The bikes were in great condition and the cycling could not be easier, it was a hot day but there was plenty of water on hand.

Tim is a belter of a guide with buckets of interesting knowledge about the wine, the history of winemaking in the region and the famous chateauxs, and Saint-Emilion itself etc, as well as being an all round fantastic bloke who can Bring any group together.

If there's anything you do whilst in Boredaux, it should be this.
