  • This tour was amazing!

  • 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.

  • PS wine museum of commerce more relevant than sensory electronic Cite du Vin.

  • This was a well spent 4 hours in Bordeaux. The guide was lovely and the pace of the walking tour was good. The stops were well planned and the little chocolate kitchen was especially informative. The lunch back at the office was also good. The dining area is in an apartment building but is the office of a local wine tour group.

  • 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.
