Our tour with Galia was an incredible experiente. Though the weather was not on our side, the itinerary chosen and the hidden treasures of Bordeaux offset this. Galia English level, experience and knowledge of the city and her lovely personality makes her a great tour guide. We had a wonderful time.

Galia was the perfect wine tasting guide for us in St. Emilion and Pomerol. She understood perfectly what kinds of wines we wanted to taste (non-cult, family run, reasonable, available in the US), picked terrific wineries, and provided a great overview. We have been wine tasting in many countries and this was the most informative wine tasting we have ever had. Besides being thoroughly professional, Galia and her husband, Gregory, are a delightful young couple. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard, Thank you so much for your warm and touching review. I am happy that you enjoyed the wine chateaux visits and the tastings and they could nicely surprise you. I hope to see you both again. All the best, Galia

Galia is a fabulously knowledgeable tour guide. She knows the local history and is a wonderful storyteller. We asked her to take us off the beaten path, and she did exactly that! We visited several vineyards and enjoyed private tastings. She arranged for a private lunch at a small winery which overlooked the most gorgeous scenery. And on top of everything else, Galia is a very warm, lovely person. My husband and I highly recommend her.You will not be disappointed!

Galia made the city come alive for us, sharing its history, more recent evolution during the 21st century, and current culture. She demonstrated how to use the trams to explore the city on our own in the coming days, took us to shops in the city center offering free samplings of local specialties (pastries, chocolates, and mustards). -- shops we would not have found on our own. The shop staff members were gracious and informative. And she suggested restaurants we would enjoy in the coming days.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Trude, Thank you so much for your kind review, it was a real pleasure to know the both of you and spend the afternoon with you. I hope you and Bob enjoyed the rest of your trip in our beautiful region. All the best, Galia

If you want a very special tour in Bordeaux of some of the best wineries, Galia is the one to pick. She is personable, fun to be with, fluent in English, and know the best Chateaus (2/3 growths) and will get you in them for private tours. You'll see more, and lean more in one day with her than an entire week on some of the River Boat cruises. Merci Mark and Pat Seal

This was an outstanding tour. she picked three really great wineries which gave us excellent tours of the vineyards and the wineries. Each of the tastings was very educational and fun, Galia chose a really great place for lunch with some spectacular views and excellent food. We then visited the village of Saint Emilion. Galia is very knowledgeable about the history of the area, the Chateaus, and the wines. She is attentive and lots of fun. I highly recommend this tour.

Galia did a wonderful job with this tour. She incorporated some of our requests with her own knowledge and produced an outstanding tour for us.

Galia was an exceptionally warm, charming and knowledgeable guide. She made our day absolutely PERFECT! She and her husband, our driver, made sure that we did not miss a thing. Galia gave us time to do everything we wanted and chose an absolutely wonderful place for lunch. She also insisted a on paying for special stops at a candy store and an outdoor bar! Best guide I've EVER had!!

Galia was great. She got us into some wineries that did not allow public tours. She was very accommodating for our schedule and provided a very interesting tour of Bordeaux that our teenage children liked. She also knew a great deal about the wineries and history of the wineries. I would definitely use her again if we come back.

She is passionate and knowledgable about Bordeaux's history and culture, and tailors the places visited and her commentary to the interest of her clients. She's very knowledgable about the local food, making stops at different places to sample the specialities, and recommends outstanding restaurants!!

"I want her to come with us everywhere we go," is what my sister said when our tour finished for the day. We had an incredible tour with Galia who was so helpful and flexible when we had to last minute change our tour to another date! She listened to what we wanted and provided a perfect custom tour for us. She was so knowledgeable about both the history of Bordeaux and wine, and we learned so much during our time with her. She was so happy and bubbly that we were smiling the whole day! Thank you Galia!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Sierra and Caden, thank you for your amazing review really touching and moving, after I read it I was smiling the whole day) and still now when I write you I just want to say a Big Thank You for your great company and I hope to see you again! Arrivederci ragazzi!

Galia does a wonderful tour. My grandchildren learned a lot and can now distinguish between, Gothic, Roman and Baroque styles. We would never have seen half the things Galia showed us on our own! I highly recommend any tour that Galia does!
