Past Traveler Comments

Here is what our past travelers have to say:

"A late but heart felt thank you for the wonderful time Jonathan and I had in Medoc this year!

You all are so good at what you do and are really nice and fun people too!

I laughed, learned, and lived life to the max in Medoc, thanks to you all.

Thank you also for the very lovely  anniversary presentation and gifts/awards that I will remember with great fondness for years to come.

I hope our paths cross here in US or abroad someday soon. 

We will always welcome you as visitors to our  home (and wine cellar) in Iowa. "

Merci mes amis 




"Gayle, Sue and I made it home last night and more importantly so did our wine! We had a wonderful time, and I would like to say thanks to you, Ann and Marathon Tours for making this really a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us.  As usual you and your staff did such a great job in the planning and the logistics of taking care of ninety over-enthusiastic runners."

"Thanks for a great time in Bordeaux! Jean and I had a wonderful time and really appreciated the excellent program. Looking forward to Antarctica in March.

All the best."

"Marathon de Medoc in Pauillac, France was by far the best marathon (#105) I ever participated in – second to none.  It was not a true marathon in the sense that you needed to finish for time, but more of a "happening," or a phenomenon that occurs no-where else in the world.  Besides running in Sci-Fi costumes, they serve wine at 22 stations along the course which runs through multiple Chateaus and vineyards. It’s truly an adventure binge marathon!"

"Thank you for a wonderful experience. One I'll never forget."
Victoria B., Chicago, IL


"I want to personally thank you for what will be a life-altering
adventure in Bordeaux, and the incredible Medoc Marathon. You are a professional, extremely knowledgeable, host and guide. Thank you for the vast library of information you presented on the Chateaux, their wines and the region. I came away astounded, my already high expectations were far exceeded... hell, blown out of the water! Rest assured, we will be talking this trip up to our running friends for a long time to come! "
Gordon B., Colorado Springs, CO


"I wanted to take a moment to most sincerely thank you and your team (Kati, Jacques and everyone in the home office) who put together such a wonderful tour of Bordeaux around the Medoc Marathon. What a great trip and an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy chateau visits, wine tastings and a truly special marathon. The stories just go on and on."
Erin M., Raleigh, NC


"Just wanted to say thank you for a fabulous Bordeaux / Medoc Marathon tour.
The marathon itself was a blast and the tour of the wine country, the
chalet's, meeting the locals and our precious group on the bus was the best!
Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! "
Vickie, New Orleans, LA


"Just a note to say that we have arrived back home now and are back into the swing of routine life again. We had a great trip thank you very much and enjoyed the Marathon du Medoc."
