Tour Overview

Arrive at the Tram Stop Victoire and be welcomed by the stunning architecture and lively atmosphere. After a brief introduction to the history of the area, from the Roman foundations to medieval innovations, we will enter Capucins Market, the beating heart of Bordeaux’s restaurant scene. The produce hub opens at 3 am everyday and is the centre of city life. Weave through the various stalls as we meet local producers, learn about the regional specialities, and have a taste for ourselves! At the end of the tour, you’re free to continue to explore and maybe even buy yourself some extra treats for the rest of your day.

Frequently Asked Questions

We accept cancellations a week before the tour date and you can do it through our website. If you booked through a partner’s website then you will need to read their terms and conditions as we cannot guarantee a refund. We cannot provide refunds less than 7 days prior to the tour.

We still walk if it is raining! We do our best to stop in sheltered areas to speak and often will have some spare umbrellas or even ponchos for sale if the rain seems unrelenting.

We accept cash at the beginning of the tour, at the start location. However, waiting to pay with cash does not guarantee you a place on our popular tasting tours where space is limited so we recommend booking online in advance.

You can pay online with a credit card and we also take credit card payments at the tour start location.

You can reserve online through our website or through a number of partner websites, including, but not limited to TripAdvisor, Get Your Guide, Viator, Freetour.com, and Airbnb Experiences.
