Discover St Emilion wines and UNESCO Heritage


After a pick-up in Bordeaux, 40 minutes drive to Saint Emilion.

Let yourself be guided through the narrow and steep streets of this wonderful medieval village and discover that Saint Emilion is much more than wine!

I will take you to the mysterious underground monuments which are the craddle of local history. Follow me on the footsteps of the pilgrims and enter the largest monolithic church in Europe!

Then we will drive to a familial local wine estate for a visit and a wine tasting before driving back to Bordeaux.

The order of the visit can be changed depending on partners availibilities

A Recent Review of this tour

Our whole party was delighted with the tour which would have been difficult to improve in any way. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic, giving just the right amount of information but was able to answer additional questions with authority and clarity. Her English was impeccable. The two halves of the tour were very different but each was handled with the same degree of expertise, and both should be on the itinerary of every visitor to the region.
