Antoine was a very friendly and entertaining driver. The châteaus were beautiful and the wine guides knowledgeable and entertaining. My friends and I enjoyed the trip.

Excellent trip

Really enjoyable - tour guide was great.

Great afternoon in the Medoc

Global rating Quality/price Fun

My partner & I did an afternoon in the Medoc with Maeve as our guide. We really enjoyed learning about the Medoc and greater Bordeaux area as we drove north. We also thoroughly enjoyed the two chateaux that were picked for us - we received a private tour at each with a tasting, and we especially liked that they were different. Although on the pricier side, it was a definite highlight of our trip!

Lovely afternoon!

Global rating Quality/price Fun

We visited two chateaux for leisurely tours and tastings, then had a third tasting while driving through the countryside back to Bordeaux. Loved the relaxed pace, no rushing around. We also appreciated that these were small houses, so the first tour was with a small group and the second one private. No busloads of tourists. Bonus: Antoine was a hoot! He was very responsive to all communications. It was so nice not to have to draw straws to see who would be the designated driver and miss out on tastings. Merci, Antoine!

Wonderful trip to the Médoc region with Wine Cab

Global rating Quality/price Fun

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful afternoon in the Médoc region thanks to Antoine and Wine Cab. His taxi was very spacious, comfortable, and fun, and the chateaux he introduced us to gave excellent tours with tastings. We were only in Bordeaux for a short time, so Wine Cab made it so easy to be able to get out to the countryside. Plus Antoine was a delight to speak with about the area, and of course he is an excellent driver.

Poor value - would not recommend

Global rating Quality/price Fun

This was described as a luxury experience on the website and it just wasn’t that. For the exorbitant cost (450 euro), we went to two wineries where the tastings were 15 and 25 euro, respectively. I contacted the owner a few times after to voice my concerns and didn’t get a reply. If I were to do again, I would rent a car and go to higher quality wineries.

Great experience and fantastic guide. Maeva was knowledgeable and engaging. Would have liked to see a few more chateaus

Great experience

Global rating Quality/price Fun

We thoroughly enjoyed our Wine-cab tour. Our driver/tour guide was very personable, friendly and knowledgeable about the wine region and the wines. I would recommend this tour when staying in Bordeaux.

Fantastic day in the wine country

Global rating Quality/price Fun

We had a perfect 1/2 day touring the Médoc region. It’s a blast driving around in the taxi — you become the center of attention wherever you go! What makes it even better is the great conversation, excellent wine and curated tours of the chateaux. Highly recommended!!

It was a fantastic day!

Global rating Quality/price Fun

Our tour of in the Wine Cab gave us a taste of the Medoc wine region in Bordeaux, while we sat in the roomy cab of a wonderful old English cab. Our guide was knowledgeable and extremely warm and friendly. While chatting with her about the area we were able to enjoy the scenery without having to worry about navigating the road. They had chosen for us 2 beautiful wineries to visit, where we had private tours with enthusiastic, informative guides. We would certainly do it again!!!

Great way to taste wine near Bordeaux

Global rating Quality/price Fun

We had 4 people on the wine excursion. Our driver, Antoine, was fantastic, he confirmed our tour the day before, and picked us up on time. He had customized the Chateaus that we visited based upon our French friend's recommendation. I would recommend this trip highly. I do have one suggestion for improvement and that is to remove the glass partition between the passenger area and the driver. I realize it may no longer be true English cab experience, but it would improve the ability for the driver and the passengers to communicate.

Perfect family outing, delicious wine!

Global rating Quality/price Fun

Traveling with a toddler is no picnic, but Antoine helped make it possible for us to take the little one with us and to enjoy an incredible morning in Medoc visiting unique wine producers. We wanted an "off the beaten path" experience and Antoine tailored the trip to our desire. Thank you so much for the kind hospitality and exceptional service. We hope to be back again to continue exploring the Bordeaux region with Antoine.

Great day touring Bordeaux

Global rating Quality/price Fun

Really a great day. Nice driver and cab. Took us to several vineyards, was very punctual and knowledgable and alot of fun! We are so glad we did this.

Nice, but too expensive for the value.

Global rating Quality/price Fun

Driver was great. However, we only visited 2 wineries with minimal tasting. Did not feel it was worth the cost involved.

Excellent way to visit the vineyards of Medoc

Global rating Quality/price Fun

We both thoroughly enjoyed our morning exploring the vineyards of the Medoc. Our driver, Antoine, was excellent and took us to two very different, both fascinating vineyards. It was an excellent way to find out more and we would highly recommend it.

Great private tour

Global rating Quality/price Fun

This was a great way to tour the Médoc wine region. The driver was very nice and made sure to take pictures of our group at all the wineries. We never felt rushed and were able to truly enjoy this experience. The cab does not have air conditioning, but with 3 people and the windows open it was comfortable even at 80 degrees. Would recommend.


Global rating Quality/price Fun

What a great tour. Cedric was knowledgeable, fantastic, and a lot of fun, and we tasted some great wines. My biggest concern going in to it was that we were mid heat wave and since it's a 50's cab there was no AC, however it was perfectly comfortable the whole time since we were in the shade with a breeze. Highly recommended.

Romantic Winery Visits

Global rating Quality/price Fun

My husband and I booked a full day adventure with back to back tours. We enjoyed the intimacy of the ride and the convenience of being picked up right from our hotel. We also really enjoyed that all of our wine tours and tastings were private, just us and the winemakers. This allowed us to move at our own speed and ask lots of questions. And, our coordinator/driver seemed to have a wonderful relationship with all of the winery owners. We can not brag enough about how much fun we had on this adventure and would definitely book again.

Amazing experience! Cant recommend enough

This was a lovely day out for our wedding anniversary. Antoine was very entertaining and the reactions from the public as we drove past was very funny. We had specific requests for where we wanted to visit and these were accommodated with no trouble at all. All in all a fabulous experience. Thanks so much for a great day!

Wonderful tour of Médoc!

Global rating Quality/price Fun

We had a wonderful day touring two incredible vineyards with Tony, our driver. He was punctual and polite and endulged us with many photo ops and even a bottle of wine on our way back. The vineyards we visited were phenomenal with great service and knowledgeable tour guides. A spectacular way to explore Bordeaux!
