I’d just like to let you know that the trip you arranged for us was really great. We really enjoyed the mixture of small boutique wineries and larger ones. The people we met at all of the vineyards were extremely nice and really knowledgeable.
The hotels were great especially Casa Real which was superb, food and service were excellent and the garden is magnificent…. We were in the new part of the hotel which is built together with the museum and has an open view of a mammoth in the museum from the second floor of the hotel! We also got to see Lapostolle new facility which was really not open to the public yet. It is an architectural master it is so beautiful and peaceful, we also had a taste of their premier wine which will be made there and agreed that it really is a fine wine.
Last but not least our driver Juan was excellent. His English is great and his knowledge of history made the whole trip even better.
Thanks again for arranging the trip and we will certainly let all our friends know about your capacity for arranging a wonderful trip.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of your efforts setting up our recent visit to the Priorat region. Cindy and I have just come back from our 2-week trip in Northeast Spain, and we are still feeling the glow. The days we spent with Rachel as our guide in the Priorat region were the highlight of the trip.
Rachel is a bright, energetic individual who did a superb job setting up our visits and translating for us during our winery tours. She is very interested in the history of the area, and she is clearly networking with food and wine leaders in the area.
The food tastings were also extremely memorable, with the highlight being at El Cairat, where Juli Mestre prepared us an absolutely spectacular lunch together with very good paired wines from the region. Juli is a kind and creative individual that Cindy and I tremendously enjoyed.
Peter, through your efforts, we were able to have one of life’s most amazing experiences, up close and personal. We can’t thank you enough. Thanx, thanx, thanx…..

We are taking our first opportunity (just returned last night) to write and tell you our Bordeaux wine tour was AMAZING!!!!!!!
It was truly special and Pierre was a delightful accompaniment! He was helpful, thoughtful, wonderfully entertaining, and quite knowledgeable, too. Everyone was welcoming and gracious, the tours were informative, and each oneceducational and distinctive in their own. And as you had suspected, our last tour with Remi of Domain Chevalier was a highlight, as was Chateau du Tertre, where the accommodations were enchanting, the grounds were immaculate, and we left with four bottles of their wine, two from each class, and our very own drinking glasses. =)
Thank you a hundred times over, Peter! We can assure you we will share a glowing report of our travels with any and all and highly recommend your services. Furthermore, we are already eager to incorporate another wine tour for ourselves, just as soon as we pick the destination (Italy perhaps?).
THANK YOU, for everything, Peter. Will be in touch soon. Appreciatively,

I just wanted to write and tell you what a wonderful experience we had in the California Wine Country.
Bob, Wine World Tours Guide, was a very knowledgeable gentleman and shared many fun and educational facts with us. He was on time from the minute he picked us up in San Francisco till he dropped us at the airport. The vineyards we visited were all first class. Bob had so many connections, he made it easy for us to relax and visit with the representatives, whether it was the owner or a vineyard manager. Almost every visit was a one on one experience.
He was well prepared and paid a great deal of attention to details. Dinners were wonderful and the picnic lunches he picked up to have at the different wineries were fun, relaxing and delicious.
As far as staying anyplace besides the Villagio would be a mistake. It’s beautifully located right in town. (Walking distance to wonderful stores.) Their breakfast buffet I agree is the best in town. Our rooms were comfortable and roomy. A very quiet facility to relax in.
If anyone asks the balloon ride was breathtaking. Floating over the vineyards is a beautiful sight.

James and I would like to thank you for setting up a wonderful two weeks in France. We thoroughly enjoyed your guidance and company through Chablis and Burgundy…. You certainly have a wealth of knowledge about wine and strong contacts in the wine region.
Mike was also an excellent guide and very knowledgeable as well. All of the hotels were a great choice with beautiful locations and very luxurious accommodations and meals. We both agree that it was our best vacation to date (as you know we travel every year).
Peter and David,
Unfortunately I don’t have time to give you a full recap right now because I am at work, but I wanted to write you a quick note and tell you that everything was great. Italy was AMAZING! – the wineries, the food and the accommodations. We appreciate all of the hard work that you and David put into planning our trip. I could not have planned this trip without you.
Your knowledge of Italy and flexibility with our needs and budget made our honeymoon the trip of a lifetime and an overwhelming success. The days of food and wine tastings and pairings will be a part of our gastronomic memories forever. We can’t wait to go back. When I get more time I will give you further details about our adventure and try to send you some pictures of the highlights.

What a wonderful country! We loved our trip to Chile….Our tour guide, Heriberto, was great. He’s a very knowledgeable and nice person. He kept us entertained while on the road with history and stories of the wine industry in Chile…. Oh, and our lunch with Pedro Grand was amazing. What an opportunity. After our lunch with him, Pedro took us over to his winery for a tour and a barrel sample. He told us to say hello…
Well, thank you again for providing us with a memorable tour. Take care,
It was clear after our first day in the Rhone Valley that WorldWineTours had planned the most incredible trip of our lives. Our wine tour through Chateneuf du Pape and Gigondas was a truly magical experience and was wonderfully enhanced by our most knowledgeable and delightful guide, Pierre. The beautiful, countryside hotel was completely enchanting.
Thanks to David’s meticulous preparations, we spent a perfect week feeling worlds away from reality, learning about and enjoying wine and food that were beyond compare. We both agree that of all the trips we’ve ever taken, this is the first that we’d be thrilled to repeat exactly as it was.

Well, we had a wonderful trip in the Southern Rhone and Mike was a fabulous guide! Our lunch at Le Grand Pre was the best meal I’ve ever had!! We ate at a couple of nice restaurants in Paris which I’ll share with you when I find my book under all the stuff we brought back!
I had the experience of a lifetime in Oporto on your private tour arranged for my Mother and myself. I have personally escorted my own tours to Portugal and am very experienced in the wines of Portugal but not quite as knowledgeable about Port Wines.
What I learned and experienced was incredible. The day on your tour made my entire trip worthwhile. I now will be putting together Port Wine Tours in the future because of my fantastic day with your company.
Thank you again for this once in a lifetime tour…. We will never forget this day.

Peter was an incredibly knowledgeable guide—he knew everything there is to know about wine in Napa and beyond, and was great at feeling out our group so he could tailor the tour to our prior knowledge. We had unprecedented access to wineries like Blankiet, Caymus, and Araujo, and had a great time meeting the winery guides and winemakers. Our family is still talking about how great the trip is.
