Your private shore excursion tour begins with a panoramic tour of the city of Bordeaux. During this tour, you’ll get a nice overview of the city and see many famous attractions of Bordeaux including the Grand Theatre, St Andrew's Cathedral, Place des Quinconces and Pey Berland tower.
Next you will travel to the charming village of St Emilion, full of Romanesque architecture. Not only is it one of the most picturesque villages in France, it's also one of the principal red wine areas of the Bordeaux wine region. In St Emilion, enjoy a 45-minute walking tour and then explore this sleepy town on your own during your free time. You can grab some lunch, admire the narrow streets full of historic World Heritage-designated buildings or enjoy some retail therapy in the local shops.
You will then depart St Emilion and travel to a nearby wine estate, where you will enjoy a wine tasting in a Grand Cru Classé chateau. You will be introduced to the art and techniques involved in the wine-making process and taken on a tour of the vat house and the cellars.
