Galia is a phenomenal tour guide. She was professional, flexible and prompt. She was a delight to spend the day with her. She is knowledgeable and wine and the region. I learned so much at the Chateaus about how wine is made from start to finish. The experience was available due to Galia's knowledge and relationships with the Chateaus as well. Anyone going to Bordeaux she request Galia. Tricia
