What You Can Expect

Bordeaux Gourmet Food Walking Tour with Lunch

Discover the city of Bordeaux while on your gourmet walking tour

Begin your 4-hour gourmet exploration of Bordeaux by meeting your guide near Place des Quinconces in the city center. This food tour ambles through Bordeaux and a very leisurely pace, giving you time to marvel at the historic beauty of the city's architecture. Listen as your professional foodie guide offers insight into Bordeaux's culinary history as you walk.

Visit a favorite local bakery, with inviting scents of freshly-baked baguettes surrounding you as you meet the baker and sample some handmade treats.

Next, visit one of the most famous chocolatiers in the city to meet the owner. Generations have kept the shop's recipes secret, and though you may never be able to duplicate what you taste you'll certainly enjoy the samples. Unique flavor components include green tea, olive and ginger.

Follow your guide to a cheese shop to learn about the cheese-making traditions that make French cheese so world-famous while you sample cheeses from different parts of the country, including Roquefort, Brie and Comté.

After all this sampling, finish your tour with a visit to a typical apartment for a buffet-style lunch. Take your pick from the generous array of food offerings, including many of the items you sampled earlier in the tour, accompanied by some excellent Bordeaux wine. Conclude your lunch with a traditional Bordeaux cake called a canelé. The tour ends after lunch.

Low key but nice tour. The guide as very sweet and knowledgeable. The shops we visited were great. The best part was returning to the office and having the lunch they provided. It consisted of a cheese plate, salad, bread and quiche along with wine. It was all quite good.

Julie was an excellent guide - interesting stops baker, chocolate shop and cheese shop where we got a bit of hx and samples as well as a lovely lunch. This was our first Viator but will definitely seek you out again on any non-escorted trips. Wish we had done more on this trip as your tours were certainly less expensive than those offered aboard ship and, based on one, equally as good. Thanks

Checkin and pre booking of tour was professionally handled. Laura our tour guide was excellent and handled all on the tour members with individual attention. The tour was a great mix of the history of Bordeaux and then a meet and greet with local food artisans. From the Boulangerie, Chocolate Making to the Cheese Suppliers who all made us feel very special and answered our questions as if it was the first time - we loved it all. The icing on the cake was the magnificent lunch from these shops washed down with Bordeaux red. Yeah!!

Simply amazing! This is a MUST do tour in Bordeaux specially if you haven't been there yet, which was my case. The guide was extremely knowledgeable, the wines were amazing and the cheeses were divine! I learnt so much about wine and the tasting tips that I now feel like a pro! The place where the tasting took place was really charming and felt very exclusive. It definitely went beyond my expectations!
