Notre guide était très agréable. La chocolaterie était mieux que bien et on y a rencontré des vrais passionnés. Pour la boulangerie, les produits sont de qualités ainsi que la fromagerie mais pas de passion. Pour le repas du midi rien de particulier.
I think that going to the chocolate shop was my favorite stop, we saw how the candies are made, sampled chocolates from around the world and tried some of the chocolate candies as well. It was fascinating to learn how chocolate candies are made from Cocoa bean to candy.
We learned a lot about the history of the city and the changes in the last 20 or 30 years. At the apartment we had a fun lunch of Charcuterie, Quiche Lorraine, a salad, and wine.
This is a good way to get acquainted with the area especially if you are staying in the Saint Michel or Chartrons areas. Sorry, I don't have photo's at this time, if I am able to edit this review later I will post some, but I may have only taken them at the chocolate shop...
Very nice tour. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Bordeaux and we had a lot of time at each stop. Sampled pastries, cheeses, and had a great tour of a chocolate shop that dates back to the 1800's. The tour ended with lunch at the Viator dining room. It was very nice, plenty of food and wine and samples picked up on the walking tour. It was also nice to have the time to visit more with the other couple on the tour.
This one was great. We got a tour of the city and went to the best bakery where we had coffee and pastries that were delicious. Then we went to the chocolate factory and learned a lot about making chocolate and tasted a lot of them. The last one was the cheese store. We had 3 very good chesses. After all that we went for lunch. We had a very good quiche and lots of wine. We ended up buying some wine to ship home. The whole experience was fantastic.
Our guide was very friendly as well as knowledgeable about his hometown. Of course we saw the important buildings and monuments but our visit to a special bakery where we had their bread and some coffee was a pleasant break in the walk. We also stopped at a cheese shop for a tasting. The highlight was our stop at the chocolate shop where everything was a work of art. Upstairs we saw the professionals at work and tasted different varieties of chocolate. The tour ended with a nice lunch with wine, naturally.
So well organized. Great tour guide. The chocolate factory tour was far better than the one included in our cruise excursion version.
More to view, sample, and be told about the whole process not just a visit to a shop for mere purchases. Left wonderful memories.
