Northern Puglia wine and cooking experience
Hi Tim We are home again and had a wonderful holiday. Thank you so much for all that you and your staff did to make our visit to Puglia so very special. The people who we met were terrific and will be remembered with a smile. I hope to meet you sometime soon and until then, happy travels. Cheers Elaine

4 Clients in the Chilean and Argentine wine valleys.
Tim put together a two week wine tour of Argentina and Chile for us and three friends who joined us in Chile. The result was fantastic. We had the opportunity for private visits, including tours and tastings, of nearly thirty wineries and had a number of great wine-oriented lunches and dinners. Tim and his associates obviously have established great relationships with many of the top wineries in the region, as we were treated royally and given the opportunity to taste some of their best wines. This was a truly private tour and during each segment we were accompanied by a very knowledgeable guide who assured that things ran smoothly. Moreover, the guides were all delightful, listened to our comments and occasionally adjusted the tour to meet our desires. We would happily use Tim to arrange a future tour for us and would strongly recommend him to anyone else who wants a high-end wine tour.

Chilean and Argentine wine and food experience for 4 women traveling together.
I stumbled across Robertson Wine Tours on the internet and I’m so glad I did! Tim organized a trip for four of us in Chile and Argentina that was truly magical. He arranged everything from the moment we arrived and provided access to experiences we would have never have had otherwise. The result was one of the most amazing vacations we’ve ever had (and we’ve traveled all over the world). Tim was easy to work with, always responsive and we felt extremely well cared for. If you’re into food and wine and want a very special trip that you’ll always remember, Robertson Wine Tours is for you!

Exceptional Journey though the wines regions of Central Chile and Argentina
Dear Tim. I wanted to take a little time and give you a review of everything we did while the trip is fresh on my mind...Let me start by saying there is absolutely nothing we would have changed! Everything you suggested and organized was perfection. This trip was arguably the most relaxing, and might I add, delicious trip I have ever taken. To me relaxation is defined by a 3 hour lunch and we had one of those every day! Lapostolle - What a view! The service was, as always, great! Pilar at one point was walking by the pool sometime around early evening and I stopped her to ask what time dinner was. She looked confused then said... "Whatever time you say dinner is, Mr. Duncan." Love it! The food here was unbelievable. Clos Apalta, The private cellar underneath the barrel room, When our guide opened the glass table to expose the staircase, I thought I was James Bond. That might be the coolest room I've ever had the privilege to stand in! Casa Coupage . That entire evening changed the way I will look at food and wine forever. Park Hyatt Buenos Aires - Amazing! In conclusion, I just want you to know that you made our vacation a magical experience. A million times, Thank You.

Wine professionals travel to Chile to enjoy the central valleys of Chile
Dear Tim, We are now safely home and reacclimatizing to winter conditions. Our holiday was completely fabulous and we were bowled over by the way we were looked after by both Karen and Alwin. In particular we were impressed by Karen's great attention to detail and her evident knowledge of the Chilean wine scene. Our itinerary was excellent, with a good balance between plenty of winery visits, all with something different to offer, and time to relax, which made the programme manageable for John. We tasted a great range of super wines and learnt a lot about the industry and how it is developing in Chile - however much you read I always find it only comes to life when you visit a region and see it for yourself. Thank you very much for all you did, with best wishes.

Wine touring the Argentine for Two Canadian Wine Lovers
Yes. All is fine in snowy Toronto. I will say, Tim, that you and your team were absolutely terrific in all ways, and made this trip so special for both me and Bruce. We had a fabulous time and can't wait to share the highlights. The one bad thing is that you have totally spoiled us for any other type of vacation - I think we are sold on the driver/guide formula for the future - it made life so much easier and our time so much more enjoyable. We will give you some time to develop your business in Italy before we come knocking on that door (you can count on it), but you can be sure that we have already been talking you up to everyone we meet and will continue to do so. Talk soon, and thanks for always looking over our shoulders..

Honeymoon, once in a lifetime trip to Argentina.
Tim as we mentioned, it was absolutely fabulous . We haven't stopped raving about the trip yet and have already told people that if they're planning on going down to Argentina, you're a "must" to speak with. We had great guides/hotels/etc, but it was nice to check my phone and see that you were checking in. Thank you. It was a small touch, but appreciated!! We enjoyed the vineyards you chose and by the end, knew why you picked each one. The two wine lunches were amazing -- truly special. I think Justin liked Melipal more, I liked Andeluna. Both were very wonderful experiences. Lucile our Mendoza guide was a dream and we recommend keeping her as a "go to" person. She was the perfect mix of friendly and available without being all over us. Overall the trip was magical -- truly a wonderful experience for both of us. We got engaged just a few days for the trip, so this was extra-special. Your team was great and again, we really appreciated hearing from you throughout the event. As two adults under 35 (not in our twilight years), you've convinced us that a great guide is well worth it. THANK YOU.

UC Davis comes to Sicily investigating the wines of Etna and beyond
Six years ago, when we decided to tour Salta, one of Argentina's major wine regions, a friend recommended that we contact Tim Robertson of Robertson's Wine Tours. We called Tim and he drew up a plan that turned out to be complete, well organized, and scheduled appropriately. Although we have traveled several times with him since, our recent tour of the Sicilian wine region more than fulfilled our expectations. Not only did we enjoy hearing the local history of winemaking, we came away with a sense of the terroir, knowledge of the varietals, and a real respect for the winemakers, not to mention a love for the wines. For those who are looking for the finest experience possible experience in wine touring, we highly recommend Tim Robertson.
