“Firstly, ask for Berit Simonsen. She was an amazing guide with so much knowledge of the region, wines and Chateaus. Our small group of 5 really liked her. Berit gave the perfect amount of knowledge without going over the top or making things up, which has been our experience with guides before. She was just great. We really do applaud Berit. Thank you for a great tour. “

Richie, London, United Kingdom

“Berit was part of our Wine Tourism Team in Chateau Gruaud Larose for four years. Our clients were always touched by her sensitivity and her grace, without her ever taking herself seriously. She’s always thirsty for knowledge and adores to pass on her passion for wine. Our partners and clients are still asking after her.”

M. Mendonça, Château Gruaud Larose, 2ème Grand Cru Classé depuis 1855 (Saint-Julien)

“We spent two extraordinary days with Berit in the chateaux. Thanks for everything, really!”

Annie and Co, Paris, France

“To our deep regret, we weren’t able to hold on to Berit in the Wine Tourism Team of Chateau Carbonnieux. We were so fond of her professionalism, adaptability and language skills. We are certain that, with her extensive knowledge of Bordeaux, her sense of commitment and her yearlong experience as a guide, she has all the cards in hand to help wine amateurs discover our beautiful region."

C. Perrin, Château Carbonnieux, Grand Cru Classé de Graves (Pessac-Léognan)

“Lots of fun and approachable information. We just sat back and enjoyed the ride. Berit gave us a wonderful experience. Highly recommendable.”

John, Anna & Caitlin, Nelson NZ

“We spent the day with Berit who took us to various chateaux in Bordeaux. Before that, our exchanges with her to set up a tour that would suit everyone in the group (different members of the same family) were both warm and efficient. She managed to find a good sample of estates, so we discovered new things all day long. Berit had a pedagogical, professional yet very kind approach that everyone in the family liked. We’ve been recommending her to everyone ever since…”

Jacques & Francine + family, Toulouse, France

“We have been on many, many wine tours, all over the world, and quite frankly, we thought we had seen it all. But Berit managed to keep us alert and amused. One of our best tours ever. What an achievement!”

Angela and Mike, Santa Ana (CA)

“In a few words, Berit stands for sharing, humour - in French and in English – knowledge, sincerity, enthusiasm for wine and gastronomy, spontaneity, corporate culture, passion and communication. You absolutely want to book her as a guide to discover the chateaus in Bordeaux!”

C. Masson, Château Siaurac (Lalande Pomerol), Château Vray Croix de Gay (Pomerol), Château le Prieuré, Grand Cru Classé (Saint Emilion)
