I am Australian and have been living in Bordeaux for about 4 years. One of my visiting friends pleaded with me to do this tour with them while they were visiting, and I am so glad they did!
Living in Bordeaux for about 4 years now, I can truely say that this tour enables a complete, authentic immersion into Bordeaux wine culture and food. Each vendor we visited had expert knowledge, and answered all questions with a smile. The quality of the wine was incredible, and the provided lunch was truely an authentic French apéro style lunch - delicious !! Lastly, we were given the chance to create our own wine! This is a super opportunity, and really fun. We got to create our own wine, cork them ourselves, as well as create our own labels. A very cool keep sake! Nothing was touristy - everything was very authentic !
The host John was kind, thoughtful, approachable and knowledgeable. In fact, the day we had the tour was 30 degrees, and he thoughtfully brought water, sunscreen and mist spray for all guests! The bus driver was also so kind and thoughtful. His wife is a pastry chef and he actually brought us pastries she had cooked for us all! So kind.
I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Bordeaux!! My friend and I had the best time! Thank you Devour tours for an experience I will never forget!
