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...
Our guide was fantastic! We learned lots about the history of Bordeaux and she was able to answer our questions. The places she took us for tastings were brilliant and we've been back to each one for more delectable bites
Very informative, excellent overview of Bordeaux which we wouldn't have discovered on our own. Knowledgable tour guide, nice little tastings along the way finishing with a lovely, substantial lunch and wine. Very worthwhile with a small group and highly recommended.
Absolutely loved this walking tour as we got to see things we wouldn't have found on our own. Tour guide Stephan was very informative and enjoyed the bread, chocolate and cheese tastings and information. Thus was followed up with a great lunch. It was a nice group of just 8 people. Highly recommend this tour.
The guide was very knowledgeable without being boring and the tastings were wonderful. The lunch with the tour guide was also a treat.
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the wines of Bourdeaux, it was an excellent introduction to the area. Loved the opportunity to try so many wonderful cheeses, was so impressed by the variety and abundance of cheeses - my favorite part.

My partner and I chose this tour to further explore wonderful Bordeaux and we couldn't have been happier with our experience. The tour was very pleasant and we particularly appreciated our guide's performance. Marie, our guide, was great at managing the tour in both French and English. She knew the topic very well and delivered a very insightful presentation into Bordeaux wine and French cheese. Kudos to her for also being graceful while firm with one of our fellow toursits who played the bad cop. In addition, the restaurant where the wine and cheese tasting was held was very nice and its staff pleasant. And oh my, the cheese cellar is so impressive! To sum up, I highly reccomend this tour for exploring Bordeaux wine and get an interesting introduction to wine tasting, cheese a volonte to taste and a knowledgeable tour guide.
I loved our class! Our "teacher" was very informative about French wines which really allowed us to make informed decisions when driving the countryside on our own. And the cheese cellar was a-mazing! I didn't want to leave!
