    We were expecting better wine and food destinations, and some dodgy hotels were disappointing. We had a great guide and driver though. Your telephone customer service person could not have been less helpful in assisting how we could get from Nice to Bordeaux to get on the next tour.

    Tour destinations really great as was the guide…..however 3 star hotels and cramped bus really undermined the enjoyment.

    The sites we visited were in general great but the hotels were a little disappointing.
