The English taxi adapted to anti covid-19 barrier measures.

The English taxi is the only private transport vehicle with a protective window separating the driver from the passengers.

This window completely isolates you from the front seats but does not prevent you from admiring the magnificent landscapes of the wine route of Médoc, Saint-Emilon, Graves and other circuits proposed by our company.

Comfortably seated at the back of the English taxi you can also taste some white wine offered by your driver, your bottle and glasses will be placed in the mini bar instead of a folding seat transformed for the occasion.

This tasting will be done on the road between the visits of the castles selected for your tour.

Note that Wine Cab only realizes private towers. This is how you will never be in physical contact with other people, neither in the taxi nor in the tours and tastings organized in the Grands Crus Classés or in the family properties that will welcome you as guests of brand.

In addition, the vehicle will be disinfected before each run and an hydroalcoholic gel will be provided. You will be able to fully enjoy your wine tour in a complete sanitary safe way.

If you wish to immortalize the best moments of this authentic experience, you can take pictures with our Polaroid that will allow the photos to be printed and then immediately placed into your illustrated and signed road book by your driver.
Despite this odd period we are going through, Wine Cab makes every effort to make your tour a unique moment of unusual discoveries and conviviality.

Different private tours are offered on this site, but do not hesitate to contact us by phone if you have any particular desires for tours of castles or itineraries outside our tours, our wish is to make you live a unique experience made of authentic encounters and prestigious tastings.
