After doing a wine tasting workshop with Guadalupe, I decided to book her private tour to learn more about the city. In the same line as her tasting, she was amazing. She showed me the highlights of Bordeaux, important monuments and even included some old legends and quirky details that I would have missed otherwise. She was very kind, showing great passion and love for her adopted city, She also shared recommandations of places to visit outside of Bordeaux, restaurants, markets, museums and told me about a wine festival that was taking place during my stay. I recommend doing this tour with Guadalupe in your first day so you get a good sense of the city. Thank you very much, Guadalupe.

Eating our way round Bordeaux was the perfect way to get to know the city. Our guide, Lou, was friendly and good fun. Being a Bordeaux local meant her intro to the city felt really personal. There was a great mix of savoury and sweet. The mussels in beer were the group favourite. The only tricky thing was trying to pace ourselves so we weren’t too full before the end! Would definitely recommend.

We loved our tour! Our guide Victoire was absolutely amazing and took the time to squeeze in one extra stop at a winery known for their sparkling wine on the way back. Such a special day, we learned a ton and so enjoyed our time! Thanks very much to our wonderful guide!

Marie was very knowledgeable and we got a detailed view of wine making and the grapes. She is very friendly and insightful. We also enjoyed tasting the wine. Definitely a must do on any trip to Bordeaux.

It’s a real don’t miss experience with extremely knowledgeable and yet user friendly guides. It was an amazing experience from beginning to end. Thank you Lascaux.
