What people are saying about Nouvelle-Aquitaine

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.

A really great (day) tour! The ride in the sidecar was fantastic, we were entertained and laughed a lot. The selected wineries have given us a good impression. At lunchtime there were regional specialties for a picnic. Our individual wishes were always taken care of. An all-round successful tour. Definitely book when visiting Bordeaux. Thank you, Alexandre! Thank you Arnaud!

They provided fantastic edutainment about Bordeaux in the most charming way possible!! … Thank you so much, Guys - we are coming back to do your wine tour !!
