This is a long overdue review - I didn't use to write review until today, and I do want to write something for Gourmet Touring. We were in a group of 6 Bordeaux-wine-lovers and we engaged Gourmet Touring for a 7-day tour in Bordeaux back in October 2010 (there is no option for me to enter an older date for... More

Our group of 5 used Gourmet Touring based on another friend's recommendation, before our tour started, the owner John was very responsive to our requests and concerns. John met us at the airport and made sure we got the rental car fine since we did not speak French, He planned everything with such attention to detail, all we needed to... More

Gourmet Touring is an outstanding company which we highly recommend. We went on a four day wine and food tour of the Bordeaux region. It was a self-guided tour but every last detail had been thought of and the experience was so easy and enjoyable. John Mears sent us a Garmin GPS before we left, we picked up the car... More

I have gone around the world several times but no tour was ever so fabulously put together as by John Mears of Gourmet Touring. Not one detail was overlooked. From booking seriously great vineyard tastings (Yquem, Mouton-Rothschild, Lynch-Bages, Clinet, etc) and picking famed or out-of-the-way foodie gems to meticulously planning every stop while making perfect geographical sense, John covered it...

This is the first time I've heard of self-directed driving tours, curated by an expert and led by a programmed GPS - it's a fantastic way to travel. John & Gourmet Touring have deep relationships in the region, and they put together an incredible 5 days for us. He was highly recommended to us, and we've already started recommended him... More

Great 3 day experience in Bordeaux. John went above and beyond on his recommendations. Very friendly and easy to talk to. We would recommend him to anyone not looking for the "typical" group tour. Thanks John!! Brian

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...
