What a fantastic experience for our family holiday. 2 adults and 2 teens. We gad two bikes and cart between us. The tour started promptly in time. We had spent a day previously exploring Bordeaux so the guide advised us to take the trip across the bridge to see the others side of Bordeaux. The weather was so hot it helped as we had plenty of time in shaded areas. The two guides had fantastic knowledge of the area and we learned so much. We don’t speak French only English and this was not a barrier. Both guides had excellent English. When we finished on the far side of Bordeaux we returned to our stop with a spin through the city centre, on the winding cobble side streets with the most beautiful buildings surrounding us. Excellent way to experience Bordeaux, highlight of our holiday.

I loved this tour of the city by sidecar. Our guide was funny and knowledgeable he made our tour special. This is certainly a better option to the hop on hop bus as the motorcycle get go down the narrow streets of the old town and you feel like you are immersed in the city.
