What to Expect
After pickup from central Bordeaux, set out on the journey to St-Emilion, traveling by air-conditioned minibus. Along the way, stop to visit a grand cru classified wine chateau in the St-Emilion wine region and enjoy a tour of the estate. As you stroll around the vineyards, learn about the winemaking process, the importance of “terroir,” and the different cru classifications of French wine. Finally, sample a selection of Bordeaux wines during a guided tasting. Continue to the hilltop town of Saint-Emilion and enjoy a guided walking tour of the picturesque medieval village. After taking in the highlights, enjoy free time to purchase lunch (own expense) at a local restaurant, browse the shops, or visit the town’s wine cellars.

There is no space in the bus for prams, baby seats etc. Not sure how it would work if a reservation for the baby was made - there would then obviously be better space.
