Enjoyed our ride through Bordeaux with Flavie! She's very knowledgeable about the history of the city/region. Interesting to note that any of the main attractions/sites aren't part of this tour so make sure you see them on your own (or find a tour that includes them!). This tour is more of a cultural/history tour.

Just brilliant, unforgettable tour and a great way to spend an afternoon getting to know Bordeaux. I had so much fun on this tour, it was lovely to go on a relaxed ride around the city and listen to the stories about the history and culture. The guide was really lovely, very attentive, informative and made us all feel well looked after. I thoroughly recommend. The tour does require a fair level of cycling skill - not necessarily fitness, but ability to stop and start, cycle safely in busy areas etc.

Wonderful tour on the surprisingly numerous bike paths of Bordeaux on the traces of history and modernity. Miquel makes it all very entertaining and easy to understand (in English) with appropriate pauses at the relevant spots. The other side of the river with the Darwin Eco and Culture area is well planned with a 15-minute break for a super good coffee or drink (you probably wouldn't do it on foot). Absolutely recommendable for the Bordeaux visit.
