Experience the beauty of Saint Emilion wine region
Enjoy a fun day full of adventure with the whole family. On this full day tour, enjoy a riding a bicycle along the vineyards and landscapes listed World Heritage by UNESCO. Different biking trails are available and are suitable for all fitness levels!
A great option is a one hour ride on a horse-drawn carriage through the vineyards. Take in the lovely views and admire the beautiful landscapes as far as the eye can see! You can choose different options such as a visit and taste in a Saint-Emilion Château, a picnic in a picturesque spot in the vineyards… the choice is yours!
Another enthusiastic experience for both children and parents is to board the ‘little train’ of Saint Emilion and to travel through the vineyards to admire some of the most beautiful and prestigious Châteaux of the Saint-Emilion wine region.
The village of Saint-Emilion is also a perfect family destination. Dating back to the 11th century, this medieval gem will have your children take a leap back in time. While in the village, you can opt to visit the incredible underground monuments of Saint-Emilion including the monolithic church & the catacombs. The local tourism office has also created a special TREASURE HUNT for children aged to 15. Little explorer Robin invites your children to stroll through the medieval village of Saint-Emilion while answering some riddles. There is a choice of 3 different themes – Heritage, Gastronomy or Nature.
Finally, for the parents, we have selected a number of Wineries that have adapted their offers so as to include activities for children while you have the opportunity to taste some of the most succulent wines of the area.

Totally enjoyed the experience! – Found the tour guides to be knowledgeable and competent of the area and wineries. They were highly courteous and respectful.
Wonderful tours in Bordeaux – During our stay in Bordeaux, we went on two wine tours. We enjoyed them a lot! My favorite was the tour of Margaux. Delphine is a sweet girl, she is a great tour guide!
Excellent!! – Very nice trip. Our guide Karim was very cool and showed a great knowledge about wines. The wineries visited were very good too!
Great tour to Medoc! – Highly recommend this tour, will do it again next time someone visits. Our guide was enthusiastic, funny and knowledgeable, and we learnt a lot at the château’s we visited.
