My husband and I only had a couple of days to spend in Bordeaux. We were interested in learning about and tasting the fabulous wines of the Bordeaux region. We wanted a no-hassles trip so we contracted with Gourmet Touring, a company run by John and his wife Sian, to develop an itinerary for us. It was one of the smartest things we have ever done because not a minute of our trip was wasted. We attended the Ecole de Bordeaux, visited 5 vineyards and toured St. Emilion. Our lodging was arranged for us at 'La Petite Source', a beautiful 200 year old house owned by Luc and Melinda. We were invited to live at the house as if it were our home and were wined and dined by Luc, a master sommelier and Cordon Bleu chef. John did an excellent job from the moment he picked us up at the train station to the moment he dropped us off. All of our expenses were pre-paid for. John acted as a chauffer and battled rush-hour traffic, allowing us to recover from jet-lag. He is a great guy, very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. He went above and beyond the call of duty making hotel and travel arrangements for us when our original departure plans were thwarted by the Icelandic volcano. We got everything we hoped for and could not of imagined a better trip.
