I cannot recommend a tour with Hamish highly enough. Two friends from California and I (from London) had two absolutely first class days with Hamish. With him we visited Rauzan Segla, Mouton, Pontet Canet, Leoville Barton/Langoa, Ducru Beaucaillou, Lascombes. To have put this programme together would be an achievement at the best of times (Bordeaux is harder than many other... More

We spent two days in Bordeaux with Hamish and it exceeded my expectations (which were very high). He got us into the top chateaux for private tours and tastings, taught us about Bordeaux, took us to some local restaurants and was a pleasure to be with. It didn't feel like a tourist experience and was very personalized. We will definitely... More

We had a group of nine traveling to Bordeaux at around harvest time in late Sep. Hamish did an excellent job organising our 2 days wine tasting tour. He is an experienced wine negociant. We visited seven Chateau in Saint Emilion, Pomerol and Margaux. We enjoy all of the visits including Rauzan Segla from the Chanel family and Chateau Lynch... More

Hamish was the perfect driver for the day! Very pleasant and extremely knowledgable about the area. We let him pick the wineries, and he did a great job with variety from small to large. He truly understands the area and the history, and we walked away grateful that we picked his service over others. Look no further, you won't regret... More

If you're looking for a casual but informative and in depth tour of the Bordeaux wine region, it's history, estates and wines, then Hamish is your man. Terribly well informed and having extensive personal relationships with many of the Chateaux owners, doors which would remain firmly locked to many of us are suddenly opened !!! From half a day to...

This man is amazing! He put up with my mother my father wife and myself for a whole day! Not only that, he picked us up from the airport, took us to all of the great Medoc stop possible. I can't say enough great stuff about Hamish. Amazing sense of humor and he even laughed at may sorry jokes throughout... More

Hamish has an incredible depth of knowledge concerning the wine in the area of Bordeaux. We visited four chateaus today. During the ride to each we got a great lesson on the history of the region. I will be coming back and exploring other areas. He is very personable. We also had lunch at a local restaurant that was superb.

Well, where can I start? My husband read the reviews about Bella Wine tours, and we decided to book a couple days during our anniversary trip to Bordeaux. Those days were absolutely amazing and fun! My husband has always dreamed of going to some the the Chateaus in Bordeaux, and has an excellent knowledge of wine. But spending two days... More

If you plan on touring through the Bordeaux region at all, you MUST hire Hamish! We spent three days with him and learned so much about the region and the wine making process that it made our tour a most memorable experience. He knows all of the wines, all of the vineyards and his access to them is unsurpassed. It... More

It's very rarely you see a company on Trip Advisor that rates as so excellent. I'm here to add yet another review raving about the quality of our wine tour! We contacted out guide Hamish last minute after our flight conflicted with a different wine tour we had booked with a different company. On incredibly short notice, he was able... More
