Very good walking tour. The sights we saw were very interesting. The guide was knowledgeable, easily understood, and the pace set quite comfortable. It is also priced right.
Christine Cougul was an excellent guide with a charming, lively personality, a true love for her city, and an excellent command of English. She was heard easily in our moderate sized group, and it was great to see the city on a Sunday when traffic and noise were minimal, and most shops were closed. The walk was at an easy pace, and Christine gave us interesting information without overwhelming us with dates and facts we'd never remember. We'd never used Viator before, so we were pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to exchange our vouchers and meet our group at the Tourism Office. The low cost for such an excellent tour was the clincher for us we will use Viator as often as we're able in the future.

Our guide was excellent. We learned so much about this enchanting city.
Time very well spent.
Fantastic english-speaking walking tour. Tour guide made the history of Bordeaux come alive. He kept our interest the whole time. We did many walking tours on our 34 day Europe trip and this was way up there with the best.
Very pleasant morning spent wandering the varied streets of beautiful Bordeaux listening to stories of the past. history from our well informed guide. Not at all strenuous and really interesting.
Great tour. A lot of information and good overview of Bordeaux for a great price.
This was a great day trip and so glad we decided to book this instead of hiring our own car. We wouldn't have been able to go to half the places we did otherwise. Especially good if you have limited time, we had a great opportunity to see some amazing towns and lavender fields. Unfortunately the lavender fields were not as vibrant as we'd hoped but that's because we came at the end of the season, the day before harvesting. We were told the fields would normally be in their prime around June/July. Our guide was lovely and knowledgable and we thoroughly enjoyed it!

Very informative, host very knowledgeable on his information. Good way to learn your way around the city.
Tour guide Jean Claude was so informative and guided us all so well through the streets of Bordeaux. Loved that he made eye contact with so many of the group which made us all engage with him. Only downer was that it was raining that morning, so we walked around with our umbrellas most of the time!
Good tour to know the history of Bordeaux. The guide was friendly and informative. One thing tho, if you planned to buy a city pass, this is included in the pass so DON'T purchase this tour separately.
Our guide took us on an efficient 2 hour walk of central Bordeaux. We were able to see many important sites and received a good explanation of the history and significance. She also shared her owns views on social issues in Bordeaux, which was quite informative
Despite the rain for most of the time, it was still a good tour. We got frustrated at first because our e-mailed voucher assured us that presenting the electronic voucher to the Tourism Center actually located at 12, NOT 30 on the street would be fine, but they insisted I needed to e-mail a screen shot of the voucher to the before we could go on the tour. After doing that, the English-speaking tour had already left, unbeknownst to us so we joined the French-speaking tour. Luckily the English one was nearby so once we realized what had happened, we just snuck in with them. Our tour guide was very informative and the tour helped us get a lay of the land and see some cool sites along the way.
Very good overview tour of Bordeaux. Good tour to start the visit as it gives you good tips on which places to go back to and explore in depth.
This was an interesting tour that gave great insight into the beginning of this lovely city.
I thought that there would be more to this than there was. Meant to be a two hour tour - guide turned up 15 minutes late then finished 15 minutes early so felt a bit short changed. Group was conducted in both French and English so most things took too long. Could have probably done the same walking tour ourselves for free. Not much content overall. A tip - charge a bit more and put more in it with dedicated language guides.
The tour was interesting but the group was too large for good interaction with the guide. The audio was great and clear.
