What people are saying about Bordeaux

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 pleasant walk in Bordeaux! (Quiconces, Notre Dame, Place des grands hommes, grand theatre, water mirror, Saint-Pierre church…) We appreciated the details provided by the guide throughout the visit.

Super, and Said even took some of us for a short tour since our flight got delayed and we missed the main tour. Thanks so much!! Would highly recommend.

Bruno was an excellent guide. He took pride in sharing his love of his city with the group
