My wife and I recently spent a day with Hamish touring Pauillac and Saint-Julien. He selected four extremely different wineries for our tour, varying from the traditional Lafitte and Leoville-Poyferrre, to the modern Pichon Barron and the ultra-modern high-tech Pedesclaux. It was very educational listening...More

Hamish is a wonderful guide. He created a great itinerary, then, provided context and interesting history and information throughout the tour. Great restaurant choices too. This was a very memorable visit to Bordeaux.

Great day out with Hamish. Would highly recommend. With a limited time and Chateaux that can be harder to visit, Hamish provides the answer and will leave you much more knowledgable and appreciative of the history, appellations and politics of Bordeaux

We spent 2 days with Hamish and were delighted with his tour. There is no doubt that it has been the most memorable wine tour we have ever taken. We are going back this November for 2 or 3 more days.
