Worthwhile wine experience

Luigi was an amazing tour guide who was able to give great recommendations for both St Emilion and Bordeaux. I was feeling conflicted about whether to choose this tour or an 8 hour one but I feel this was the better choice as it was well paced and we got to see and do everything we wanted; considering the size of St Emilion, I now feel that an 8 hour tour would be too long for my liking. There was a beautiful landscape on our drive in to the town, then we did a tour of one of a chateau and got to see the underground cellar as well. Then we walked into town and got to try 5 decently sized red wines. Afterwards we had approx 45 minutes of free time which was enough to see the attractions and have a bite to eat before heading back to Bordeaux. Definitely recommend! It was the highlight of my trip!

Luigi was an incredible guide and the tour was absolutely awesome. We had an informative drive to the countryside followed by a short tour and walk through of a vineyard, then into town for wine tasting! we stopped at 2 beautiful, quaint wine shops who ship internationally and we were able to send some wine home. timing was perfect for the half day, 2pm and we were back at about 6:30pm. A perfect intro to the beautiful region of the world
