Mark was very friendly, it was a big group but he talks loud and clearly enough for everyone to hear. Good recommendations on what to do and where to eat. Worth doing on your first day in Bordeaux!

We had a great tour, learned a lot about the history, architecture, and culture of Bordeaux, and had a great time! I wish we had done the tour on our first day in the city instead of the last. I'd highly recommend this tour to other visitors.

Mark gave a great tour, his knowledge and passion shone through in his presentation. He took us from the early settlement of Bordeaux, through to the Royalty and WW2. He gave great tips for restaurants and where else to visit during our stay. Highly recommend.
