Bordeaux Day Tours: Best of Both Worlds Wine Tour Package

"Ronald and Margaret provided for us the best three days in Bordeaux I can imagine."

Transformation complete….you don’t have a care in the world. Speaking of wine, the Bordeaux Wine Experience was superb! I cannot recommend a private tour more.

"I would say this was an unforgettable experience"

We really, really enjoyed St. Emillion and theMedoc & the wine tours in both areas were fantastic. Each vineyard really took the time to explain to you the process they used to make their wine.

Why take a private Bordeaux Wine Experience?

Police controls are frequent, even during daytime

Police controls are frequent, even during daytime

When you come to our region we love to be be your guides for day trips. In the Bordeaux region you can choose from over 10.000 wine producing chateaux. But Bordeaux doesn’t offer open tasting rooms and most chateaux are not open to the general public. It can be difficult getting in to the most interesting wine chateaux.
Selecting the wineries where you will be received in a friendly way is not always easy. Even finding them in the French countryside can be a challenge.
And then there is the language. The French are notorious for their unwillingness to speak anything other than French. Our tours always have an English-speaking guide.
Driving after a few wine tasting’s and lunch is not recommended. In the Bordeaux wine region the police is strict on the consumption of alcohol and driving. Police controls are frequent, even during daytime. That is why you will appreciate that all our trips and tours are chauffeur driven.
We can accompany you as your guide and driver for two days, or for as many days as you like. For this we have developed these unique packages. Just ask us for more information.
