Our guide Iliya was very knowledgable and we had a great time with him. The two Chateaux we visited provided a good mix - one had a beautiful garden and outdoor bar, while the other had a lovely shop and gave us a wine glass as a souvenir. The list of personal recommendations for restaurants and bars in Bordeaux was also really good. Would recommend this to others for a lovely afternoon in Margaux/Medoc.

I had a great time on this tour of the Margaux area north of the city of Bordeaux. Julie was our guide and was extremely knowledgeable about the wines of the area and its history. We visited two wineries, each was beautiful and provided different examples of small and large wineries. Most of all, I enjoyed the seductive wines of Margaux!

The Tasting class is good if you're a newbie to wine or to French wine, otherwise you could skip it. The afternoon tour to Medoc and the Tour/Tasting at the 2 very different Wineries was EXCELLENT.

tour guide was very informative & friendly, the vineyards had done very nice wines too, and the two we visited had quite contrasting styles. Well recommended overall.

Well worth the money. A great afternoon on the motorbike and sidecar travelling between the chateauxs and vineyards. Thomas, our guide was great.
