This activity will end right where it started.
Depart from Bordeaux in a climate-controlled coach and travel north to two wine-producing regions — Saint-Emilion and the Pomerol. The latter is located within the Libournais area.

Near Saint-Emilion, you’ll visit a chateau — the French word for ‘castle’ — for a guided wine tasting. Find out how factors like soil and climate combine to give wine grapes distinct characteristics, and how those contribute to the flavor of the wine. Learn what grapes grow best in this area and create Bordeaux’s famous wines.

Next, make your way into the town of Saint-Emilion itself, where you’ll get to explore this exceptional UNESCO World Heritage Site during a walking tour. After that, enjoy some free time to see the town on your own, do some shopping and get some lunch (own expense).

The last stop of your tour is a wine estate in the Pomerol. Sample more of the wines during a wine tasting in a Grand Cru Classé chateau. Learn more about the detailed process of making wine during a tour of the wine cellars and vat house before climbing back into the coach and heading back to Bordeaux.

Excellent day trip with Karim to Saint-Émilion
Claire_M
, May 2022
My full day tour to Saint-Émilion was a 11/10! Karim was a charismatic, funny, energetic, super knowledgeable and very helpful tour guide who was full of information, tips and knowledge about wine and the Bordeaux region in general. I highly, highly recommend doing this day tour (especially with Karim). I had a wonderful time and am leaving Bordeaux with much more information and great wine suggestions than I came with :)

Hugo was a brilliant tour guide. Very knowledgable and friendly the whole day through. Everything was done in a relaxed way, and the wineries we visited on the day were welcoming and passed on some local knowledge. Would really recommend this to anyone who wants to get to see some of Saint Emilion, or would like to understand how wine is produced.

This tour takes you to 3 different chateaux to learn about different aspects of making wines in this Bordeaux region and its unique terroir. And of course, you’ll have a chance to taste the wine as well. It will also give you a 2-3 hour stop at the quaint village of St Emilion. Our guide, Julie, was exceptional. She is very knowledgeable, pleasant and accommodating. If you’re a fan of Merlot, you’ll love this tour.

Highlight of our 10 day vacation!

This was only our second viator experience, but we’d had a very good experience with the first one, so based on that and the very high reviews for the full day Bordeaux wine experience, we went with viator again. So glad we did! Our guide, Kareem, absolutely made this visit to 3 wineries and St. Emilion the best. He was impressive from start to finish. He was very knowledgable about both wine and the wineries and history of the region. We had a blast - he is very funny, and he made us laugh while learning all about the different wines and their blends, etc. I couldn’t believe he learned the names of all 8 of us right away - that’s not easy! When I asked him if we would be in St. Emilion for our scheduled restaurant reservation (I had made a guess), he said no, but volunteered to change the reservation for us. We played a fun wine game in the van in the way back to Bordeaux. It helped that the other 4 passengers were lovely and we all had fun together. All in all, an absolutely wonderful day. Thank you Kareem, and hope to see you again!

We had a great trip and learned a lot about wine production in the region. Pacing was great, and after three stops for tastings, we felt that we had a perfect amount of wine. Stanislaus was a great guide, and I’d highly recommend this experience to anyone interested. Definitely worth it!

Excellent tour of Saint-Émilion! We visited 3 different chateaus and learned about the terroir of the region, then walked for lunch in historic Saint-Émilion. Each vineyard was unique and the hosts were friendly and knowledgable. Our main guide Jérôme brought the tour to life! He is passionate about history and culture, with a very engaging and fun personality. Highly recommend!

Sensational wine tour. Incredible chateaus and the wine tastings were excellent. So worth the money and the time spent. Luigi was simply superb. He really made the tour excellent. So knowledgable and engaging, he made the experience so relaxed whilst teaching us so much. Would 100% book again! Grazie Luigi!

Good tour, great guide. Not value for money
Stephen_C
, Mar 2022
Saint Emilion was a lovely town. Luigi was very engaging. The quality of the wine tasting /experience was not so good. Got off to a great start with Delphine but that was the best. The second who was also an exporter was passionate about his wines but it wasn’t an engaging experience overall. The last stop was limited in tour although a beautiful location Needs some additional work on having a cellar door. It’s about the customer experience. Potential is amazing. Lovely locations, not good value for money at all.

Two hours of free time for Lunch and walk around great village of Saint Emilion. On the way home Karim had a fun game of identifying different smells of wine. Overall a good day and recommend the tour with Karim. Thx Z&S

Great way to explore and experience Saint Emilion - different types of highly classified wine farms, easy transportation, good time allocation. A few tips: Pre-book a lunch spot in Saint Emilion for around 13:30 (places get very full and also start closing around 14:30)

Amazing Time!

We had such a wonderful time on our all-day tour with Emily! She was funny, super knowledgeable, and there was never a dull moment with her - we even played a fun game on the way back to the city. Saint Emilion was absolutely gorgeous and we visited 3 wineries, each with a kind and knowledgeable guide. We were expecting cheap pours lol but were pleasantly surprised with the tastings. Very happy that we chose this tour and would definitely recommend - voilà!
