and a little french magic

Since 2005, our tours & activities agency has been organizing walking tours, food tours, wine tours and cultural tours for both independent travelers and small groups. Conducted by professional tour guides, let us show you the best vineyards along the Bordeaux Wine Route.

Luxury Bordeaux Private Wine Tours

Conducted only by a specialized wine expert guide, we have crafted unique private and exclusive tours that cover all the main appellations of the bordeaux wine region. A typical private tour to the Bordeaux vineyards will include pick up and drop off at your accommodation. We will then include several visits and tastings at Grand Cru chateaus, Classified Growth / Cru Classés or Cru Bourgeois wineries but also family owned wineries so that you may benefit from a total insider experience and fully enjoy your Bordeaux trip. During the winery tours, you will visit the estates and taste some fine red wines. As a wine lover, you will be able to choose either the left bank – cabernet sauvignon based red wines – or right bank option – merlot and cabernet franc based red wines. If you enjoy dry white wines such as sauvignon blanc then the Entre Deux Mers region is just for you. We suggest a full day of touring as this will allow you to discover a larger number of appellations as with our st emilion wine tours. You can choose from our selection of tours below or we will be happy to create a tour just for you. If you are in town for the Bordeaux wine festival then there are many options that we can include on a private tour such as a visit to La Cité du Vin, a wine tasting class, food and wine pairing courses, meals in famous chateaux, purchase of fantastic bottles for your wine cellar and so much more. It is also possible for us to organize a walking tour or a special wine tasting Bordeaux vs US Wines in the city or why not inquire about our gourmet food tour. So follow our great Bordeaux wine trails and make the best out of your time in this world famous wine region.

Shared Wine Tours Departing from Bordeaux

A shared wine tasting tour with Ophorus is a fun & informative way to discover the local bordeaux wineries in a small group tour. Designed as an introduction to the local wines and appellations, our most popular day trips will take you to the medoc region as well as to the village of st emilion included in the St Emilion and Pomerol wine tour. For those of  you with limited time, our half day wine tour is a perfect option to be introduced to local bordeaux wineries of the medoc or Saint Emilion wine producing regions. For those with a bit more time to spend in the area, our full day tours will be the perfect option. We will take you to Unesco world heritage site of Saint Emilion vineyards or to the medoc wine area. Typically, our full day tours include the visit and wine tasting in three very different wineries from Grand Crus to family owned estates. All our shared tours depart in front of the ‘office de tourisme’ of Bordeaux. Tasting fees are all included on the tours and wineries visited have been carefully selected for the quality of their wines! All our wine tasting tours departing from Bordeaux are available all year round; please note that high season for all bordeaux wine tours span from March to November.
