Bordeaux Gourmet Food Walking Tour (morning)Your full-day immersion into French gastronomy begins in the center of Bordeaux with a 4-hour gourmet food tour. Join your knowledgeable foodie guide for visits to some of the most beloved food shops in the city. This slow-paced walk also gives you a chance to see the city and hear stories about its history.

Your first stop is a local bakery, where you'll meet the baker and hear about traditional French baking methods. Smell the enticing scent of freshly-baked bread as you enter, and sample a traditional baguette while it's still warm from the oven.

The next stop is to see a famed chocolatier. The recipes here have been kept alive – and secret – for generations. Meet the owner and sample some of the shop's interesting chocolate flavors – including green tea, ginger and olive.

The final shop of the day is a local cheese shop, where you'll sample cheeses from all over France – including Roquefort, Brie and Comté. Learn about the time-honored methods of making and aging cheese that have set France apart for centuries.

After all this sampling, sit down to a buffet-style lunch in an apartment in central Bordeaux. Choose from an array of dishes, including all of the things you nibbled during your food tour, accompanied by some local wine. Finish your meal with a typical Bordeaux cake called a canelé.

Médoc Wine Tour (afternoon)Following lunch, climb into the awaiting minivan for the drive into the  Médoc region along what's known as the Château Route. Enjoy the scenery as you pass world-famous châteaux like Mouton-Rothschild, Latour or Margaux and learn about the history of Bordeaux wine from your guide. There will be opportunities to stop en route for photos.

Your first château stop is a family-run wine estate where you'll get a tour of the château's wine cellars. After the tour, your knowledgeable guide leads you through a wine workshop during which you'll learn some of the secrets of tasting wine to analyze its flavors and aromas.

The second stop is a well-respected classified growth château, where you'll get a tour of the vineyard and wine cellars before sampling some of the estate's wines. Nibble on some local  hors d'oeuvres as you sip, including fresh bread, cured meat and cheese. The precise  châteaux visited during this tour will vary, but stops may include Siran, Lagrange, Chasse-Spleen, Lamarque or Lascombes.

After your two  château visits, climb back into the  minivan for the drive back to Bordeaux, where your tour ends.

The walking tour was good but we do...

The walking tour was good but we do have one caveat. We felt that the tour should have included some sort of pastry or baked goods, not just a sample of bread at the bakery, The cheese and chocolate stops were very good with delicious samples of fresh chocolate included. Lunch was lovely with salad, quiche and wine. All in all a pleasant experience.

We had a wonderful day and Claire our guide did a great job. Walked the city for about two hours and saw and learned about many interesting facts of Bordeaux. Went on a tour of a baker shop and a chocolate factory. The family had been making chocolate since 1893 and he explained in detail the steps and process for making the chocolate. We got to sample the chocolate as we went through the steps which was wonderful. We enjoyed a quiet lunch and then toured two wineries in the Medoc area. Learned a lot about wine making and gained a new appreciation for wine. Recommend this tour for anyone especially first time people to the beautiful city of Bordeaux.
