What You Can Expect

Bordeaux Gourmet Food Walking Tour with Lunch

Local Cheese

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.

One of the best tours we have taken. Small group, friendly, knowledgeable guide who really knew her way around the town and through the backrooms and kitchens of many of the best restaurants in town. A must it really is if you are going to be in Bordeaux!

A great way to walk around Bordeaux and taste some fabulous food. The best being the chocolate shop we visited where chocolates are still made by hand. Got to taste as many as we liked. Then visited the shop to purchase chocolates. Wished we had bought more as the best chocolates I have ever tasted and very reasonably priced. Lunch was also very nice in an apartment in Bordeaux and served with wine. Guide very knowledgeable. Great walking tour all over Bordeaux.
