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

The four of us spent 2 days with Hamish and we had a great time. Hamish has a fantastic sense of humor and we got on very well. My in laws were well looked after and the tour / experience far exceeded their expectations.

My husband and I spend 3 days with Hamish in the Medoc, Sauternes, and St. Emilion wine regions of Bordeaux. Each day we visited interesting and exemplary wine chateaux (including Chateau Lafite Rothschild) and were kept entertained by his keen sense of humor and extensive knowledge of the wine industry. Hamish's first hand knowledge of the complicated classifications in each... More

Marianne conducted a spectacular and intimate tour of the Medoc region.The best part about using Bord 360 is that the tours are small -- only 6 of us on the bus, from all over the world.Marianne did the tour in English, as all of us spoke that language. On the way to Medoc, she pointed out historical sites along the... More

Hamish is simply fantastic. We had a two-day tour in early August (one day Left Bank, one day Right Bank). After the two day tour, my wife and I left with a wealth of information and understanding about the region and its wines. Everything was perfect, and Hamish showed us an excellent representation of the chateaux in Bordeaux. We visited... More

Hamish did a full day tour of the left bank for us just around the end of harvest (which we got to witness first hand at one of the chateaux). His knowledge of the wine business, the region and of the wines themselves was evident. Clearly he knows his stuff, but there's no attitude or pretension as he provides his... More
