First time user of Gourmet Touring and John does not disappoint. Attention to detail from car rentals, hotel accommodations, private tours and our other transportation needs - great job from start to finish. We look forward to coming back next year!

I arranged a 3 day self driving tour with my family of 8 in early June. John was very responsive with his emails and phone calls so it was painless arranging the Bordeaux leg of the trip. Although it is advertised as a premium touring experience, the price of the tour was very reasonable. I didn't have a big budget... More

Gourmet set us up nicely. John was great to work with over email. The stay we had in St Emillion was outstanding. Thanks for everything!

We used Gourmet Touring at the last minute in October 2014 having been let down by one of their competitors. From the outset they were fabulous. We wanted tours of only 1st and 2nd growth chateau plus Lynch and Batailley. Amazingly at short notice they managed to arrange this including a private tour of D'Yquem. You are sent a personalised...

We had used Gourmet Touring before in April 2010 when John Mears drove us around, and decided to use them again for our food & wine tour of Bordeaux in early November. As expected, Sian & John responded quickly, and after a few email exchanges, we were good to go!! John made many excellent suggestions to suit our needs, and... More

We spent 5 days 4 nights in Bordeaux. John arranged a fantastic schedule for wine and food lovers like us. We would not be able to visit those grand cru chateaus in such a perfect way without John's arrangement. The pre programme GPS works very well that we can go to different spots on our own easily. Whilst there are... More

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in France and South Africa. For France we got in touch with Gourmet Touring and Sian and John did a fantastic job. The secret is in the upfront preparation of what you want to do, see and eat and how full you want your itinerary to be. Once you're clear on that everything... More

Taking a chauffeured tour with John from Gourmet Touring allowed us to really maximise our time and get the most out of our weekend away. John was super responsive to my emails in the lead up to organising the tour and throughout the tour he was friendly and informative. The tour itself included plenty of wine tasting, lots of information... More

From the very first contact, the communication between John and us was outstanding. He understood very easily our requirements and put together a Bordeaux Wine Experience as its best. The Hotels, the chateaux visits, the wine tastings and courses as well as the chosen food location and food quality were excellent and impossible to beat. The GPS guide was handed... More

John managed to arrange for us an unforgettable trip on less than a two days notice. Hotels, Chateaux visits, wine tastings, restaurants were planned with an utmost attention to smallest details. Always seeking a feedback an adjusting to our minor comments on the spot John has surpassed all our expectations. On top of everything I was especially pleased how John... More
