Bordeaux has a lot to thank for its location. It’s no wonder that Bordeaux has become renowned for its scrumptious delicacies and exquisite wines, and we’ll show you a little bit of them all on this tour. The Aquitaine region has fertile soil for growing grapes, a stone’s throw distance from the ocean and incredibly fresh fish and seafood, a short way from Spain, and a history of wealth. We’ll walk you through Bordeaux city centre, discussing the area’s complex history with plenty of stops along the way to recharge and treat ourselves. Although once known only for the canelé and wine, Bordeaux’s streets are now filled with endless options of designer chocolates, Spanish-themed tapas, delectable bakeries, fresh produce from the region, and much more!
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.

(…) It was basically a private tour. So we had Henley as our tour guide which was awesome. She took us to the Marche des Capucins, telling us a bit about the history of the city and the news on the way to the market (…) we stopped at several kiosks to learn about the vendors’ produce and to taste the oysters, truffle ham (omg), foie gras, cheese and wine. (…) It was like visiting a friend in Bordeaux. (…)
