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.
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 experience, lovely guide and a small group. Recommend!

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.
A wonderful walking tour of the old centre of Bordeaux, concluding with an excellent lunch with your fellow tour members. Money well spent.
The tour was excellent BUT VIATOR rated TERRIBLY in letting us know WHERE we would need to join this tour.
Not specific enough VIATOR.
This was excellent the guide Remi was so informative about Bordeaux and we had a great experience in all of the gourmet shops and a lovely lunch. This was well worth doing.
The tour was fabulous! First class in every way. The historic context, the food, the wine were all great.
Great tour guide and really informative and the tastings were delicious
We had a truly fantastic time. Julie our guide was very pleasant and imformative. All the outlets we visited were great. The lunch that was provided after the tour was very tasty and plentiful. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed this tour. I would highly recommend it to everyone
I highly recommend this. It is the best thing I did on my trip. It was informative and the guide was excellent, there were great stops and surprises along the way, the lunch at the end was a perfect ending. They know how to do it. Perfect thing to do in Bordeaux.
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.
Guide was excellent and extremely pleasant and informative. She gave us a brief history of Bordeaux while we walked and provided excellent commentary throughout.
Very enjoyable afternoon learning about wines in the Bordeaux region and tasting some with the variety of cheeses. Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable. Unique setting. Well worth it.
Highly recommended tour. The guide Astrid was extremely good and knowledgeable and friendly The bakery, cheese and chocolate shops we visited were impressive and so was the lunch at the end of the tour. Highly recommended.
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!
Nice neighborhood walking tour to visit the boulangerie, the fromagerie and the chocolatier. The baker and the chocolate maker were masters of their crafts and spoke knowledgeably about their methods and products. The cheese store was a nice stop to try samples which were provided at every stop, by the way. Please understand that the producers may not speak English, so there will be some translating done by the guide. As I have been learning French, I found this to be a charming part of the trip.
The second most wonderful tour we got it in Bordeaux.
It is a private, interested, learning, meeting people in their specialties,
Even tasting what they create...
