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

John planned two delightful days of touring vineyards in the Bordeaux region for a girl's trip to France. We were met personally by John and he handed us each a detailed itinerary and personal journal with information on each location we were to visit. Every aspect of our itinerary was seamless and enjoyable. John quickly became a friend and we... More

I was attending French language school in Bordeaux for 2 weeks and during that time wanted to visit several of the vineyard/chateaux that are part of Bordeaux fame. In addition, I wanted to participate in cooking classes typical of the local cuisine. John was able to arrange... More

Two couples spent five wonderful days in Bordeaux, France thanks to John and his company Gourmet Touring. I immediately felt comfortable with John when he set up a phone call from France to discover exactly what we were looking for in our trip. The accommodations that John chose for us were truly spectacular. We stayed in two chateaus and a... More

We had a wonderful experience with GT. John was extremely helpful from the start, consulting with us to design the customized itinerary for our first trip to Bordeaux. The service rendered was top notch and we truly enjoyed every (hassle-free) moment of our trip! We will most definitely engage GT's services again in the future.

I was struggling to plan my Bordeaux trip with 2 girlfriends until I contacted John, with Gourmet Touring. Within a day or so, John had an outline of recommendations and logistics planning. John truly listened to our requests, likes and dislikes when choosing our Chateaux visits, sightseeing, lodging, restaurants, etc. Every single minute of our trip John planned for us... More
