Highly recommended. Their planning is superb. John called me to establish exactly what we wanted to do. He planned a trip at a reasonable cost, and arranged tastings, tutoring, accommodation, meals and travel. He helped with travel tips and even delivered a copy of our lost booklet to our guest house despite ill health. Best of all, we received a... More

Best wine trip you can take in all of Bordeaux! John was our personal guide and was a treat. Lunch and all tastings were included in our package. He personally recommended all of the restaurants, and they were fantastic. If you don't use him for a personal tour, contact him for a self guided tour, the restaurant recommendations alone will...

I cannot say enough great things about the experience we just had in Bordeaux under the guidance and care of Gourmet-Touring! John laid out a fascinating tour, took care of every detail for us, and then programmed our GPS so we always arrived at exactly the right place. His knowledge and customer care took all the anxiety out of trying... More

My 21 year old daughter and I planned to visit Bordeaux for a couple days after Paris. I looked on TripAdvisor and found Gourmet Touring. We wanted to be picked up at the airport, hotel booked and wine tours planned for us....as well as our dinners. Gourmet Touring planned everything including producing a little booklet detailing the history of Bordeaux... More

We used Gourmet Touring to visit Bordeaux and learn about French wines in May 2010. When we decided to visit again, we immediately contacted John Mears to see what he could plan for our second visit to the area. The trick for John though, was that we had very little wine knowledge our fist visit; this time, we came back... More

The organisation and attention to detail offered by John and Sian is second to none. Their highly detailed travel guides linked to GPS took us to wonderful places and superb restaurants. On the odd occasion when we needed some extra advice or help, they were a phone call away. Their recommendations on what to see and where to eat, offer... More

Four great days touring the restaurants and vineyards of the Bordeaux region. We usually manage our holidays ourselves but as we were travelling with another couple decided to use Gourmet Touring to plan our stay in the area. The information GTprovided in their guidebook, and the preprogrammed GPS made it easy to find exceptional things to see and do. Everything... More

We had the most incredible week traveling the Bordeaux Region thanks to John and his company Gourmet Touring! John created our itinerary based on our preferences and then used a navigation system to log in all of our destinations. This was brilliant and super easy to use! We were able to enjoy Bordeaux France with the luxury of being in... More

Having never been to the Bordeaux region the task of planning a trip is somewhat daunting. With Gourmet Touring you can't go wrong. Everything was planned in a custom fashion. Initial discussions with the Gourmet Touring team allowed us to craft a once in a lifetime trip that we could never have created on our own. The price was very... More

I'm late writing this review form our past August trip. We found GT here through TA. We like to do our own thing and not necessarily do big tours with tons of people. GT had the options of self guided tours or small groups. Our schedule didn't fit the options listed in the webpage however John curated a self guided... More
