A great way to discover old Bordeaux in a fun way. We did it with our 2 13 year olds with no worries. Every corner was a feast for the eyes, the streets are clean, picturesque and full of history. To do without moderation, I would advise having lunch there at noon to take your time the rest of the afternoon. Good discovery to all

Very interesting commentary in French & English. Lots of history of the development of Bordeaux over the years and about the Garonne itself. The wine was OK too!

An excellent way to see the city from a different angle. The tour guide was very informative and spoke a number of languages.

Great trip, good value and Anne-Marie, the bi-lingual guide was superb
