What people are saying about Aquitaine

This bike tour was the perfect activity for a nice sunny day in Bordeaux. Our tour guide brought us to some wonderful places and sights. I appreciated that it wasn’t all historical places, but also a good pitstop and an outdoor market area!

We had a great tour with Jean-Christophe and our group. The bikes are a fantastic way to see the city up close but also see different spots that might be timely to get to on foot. Highly recommended to anyone able to peddle!

I really liked the tour. I came to know all these things about Bordeaux, the guide told us so many things. I liked cycling around. I certainly recommand to go!

Flavi was our convivial guide on a very easy cycle ride and wonderful introduction to the history and culture of Bordeaux. A lovely 3 hours out!
