Great experience
Rafael_A, Jul 2023
Great experience! Beautiful town, stunning scenery. The ride was a lot of fun and Alex was a great driver/guide. Best part was driving through the fields, among the grape plants! Also, the chateaus we visited were beautiful, and the wine was great!
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Thank you so much Rafael and have a good trip!
Wonderful and unique experience
Jae_E, Jul 2023
My friend and I signed up for this tour to Saint-Emilion and it was a spectacular experience! Saint Emilion is beautiful and scenic and what a way to experience it in a sidecar. It is truly unique. Alexandre, our guide was wonderful. He was knowledgable about the sites we visited. We also really enjoyed the winery we visited. Couple of recommendations: Dress in warm clothes - it can get quite chilly on the speedways. Be sure to wear big sunglasses to shield your face...or a scarf to fend off the bugs :)

So cool! Thank you, we're happy when you're happy :)
An alternative way to explore the French countryside & St Emilion
Holly_T, Jun 2023
This alternative mode of transport to explore St Emilion was fantastic, it certainly felt like a once in a lifetime trip as I'm not sure I'll ever have the chance to travel in a side car again. Driving through the French countryside was beautiful, the tour around St Emilion old town was lovely, and our wine tour at one of the local Chateau's was so good I bought a case of wine to ship from to the US! Really well thought out excursion
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Perfect, it's great, thanks
A absolute MUST

Great experience!! If you are into wine and a little adventure, this is the way! Riding in the sidecar alone is worth it ;)
