I can highly recommend this walking tour to everybody who wants to learn a bit more about Bordeaux! Mark did a great job as he provided us with historical and cultural facts of the city and wine region. I especially like to highlight his knowledge about dining places in the city. Whatever you like to taste, Mark knows the best restaurants and bars. He is more than willing to give you the best advice. To make use of all the nice tips, I recommend booking this tour at the beginning of your stay in Bordeaux.

thanks a lot Mark!

It was great. Bordeaux is not big but a city has a long history and it was much more interesting to look around with a professional guide. Mark recommended some restaurants, bars and dessert places and we've tried some of them and they were all great. We got some new ideas for next few days as well. Thank you very much for the tour!
