Philip has access to the country’s most intriguing artisans and craftsman, making for tours that are as mind-expanding as they are pleasurable.
His speciality areas include the hidden pockets of the South of France, along with wine tastings in Burgundy, Bordeaux, and the Loire Valley, who often plans multi-week trips for clients that span the entire nation. Philip also makes sure to build in cultural experiences, like a private after-hours tour of the Palace of the Popes in Avignon or a VIP Formula 1 tour around the track.
