The tour was super cool! We are only staying one day in Bordeaux and this way we were not only able to see the whole city, but also to get tips about food, drinks, and things to do to have an amazing day. Thanks again for all the good advice and looking forward to coming back to Bordeaux very soon again!

Great tour with Mark (native English speaker) on 19th July, we were a small group. Mark is super friendly and informative. I liked how he wasn't pressed by time, hence was not rushing and that was definitely impressive. He had great advice on what to do, where to eat etc. In short, one of the best walking tours i've ever taken.
