This tour was conducted by Julie of Rustic Vines. She was informative, timely and well organized. Rustic Vines did an excellent job of communication and it was easy to locate the pick up location and walk to it from the cruise ship dock. The wineries picked were excellent choices and the unexpected appetizers at the last winery of the day were a treat. I would highly recommend Rustic Vines and this tour without hesitation or question. It is also offered on the Rustic Vines web site, but under a different name, it is called Historic Monk.

We have participated in wine tours before in our home wine region and in different regions in Europe from riverboats and cruise ships. Our tour group was 8 in total, perfect, the vineyards were different and wine tasting excellent. The town of St. Emilion is not to be missed if you are in the Bordeaux area. We had the opportunity to taste many different types of wines at a small wine shop in town before we had our picnic lunch. Matt, our driver and tour guide for the day was organized, knew the region as well as his wines. Excellent value and a great tour!!
Excellent program and guide. Very good value for the money. Only 8 people plus guide

This was our only guided excursion of our 16 day cruise, and we were so glad we did it. Both wineries we visited were lovely, and St. Emilion is gorgeous! Tim, our guide, was professional, personable, knowledgeable and fun. The picnic to wrap up the day was a treat. We would definitely recommend this journey.

This tour exceeded all of our expectations from beginning to end thanks to our excellent guide Tim. It really was one of the best tours we have taken, far superior to any tours offered by any of the cruise lines. There was only 7 of us on this tour, we enjoyed the comfort of an air conditioned mini van. Both the Chateau's were visited were excellent and had great guides and as for our picnic it was superb set in the grounds of Chateau Bernateau.

This was a wonderful way to spend the day. The weather was gorgeous and the young guide was knowledgeable. We stopped at few vineyards and had a lovely picnic in one with cheese and salamis and delicious olives. Highly recommend
