Small Font

Private tours can be organized for any date of the week between April and October. Tours are running between November to March, but some chateaux may be closed on the weekends and between Christmas and the New Year's Day. There is limited availability of chateaux visits during the last week of April due to En Primeurs.

Some wineries require advance notice to book, it is never too early to request visits at famous chateaux. It is easier to visit top names off-season.

Kids can usually attend the chateaux tours for free. Minimum drinking age is 18 years old. Some chateaux offer special visits for kids.

Small amount of walking is involved. You can expect uneven surfaces and multiple stairs.

I am an independent consultant not associated with a travel agency, transportation company or a chateau. I help you plan an unforgettable visit to Bordeaux.
