BORDEAUX

Our private and tailor-made tours offer far more freedom and flexibility to each traveller.

Private Walking Tour

Choose between a two or three hour private walking tour of Bordeaux. These tours are a great introduction to the city and will help you gather your bearings. Not only will you learn about the rich history of Bordeaux and its stunning architecture but also an insight into the real life of the Bordelais. We will visit the main historical monuments as well as different neighbourhoods which give Bordeaux its undeniable character. I can show you the best places for coffee, cocktails, food, you name it. Each tour is tailor-made to suit your personal needs so that you can relax and truly experience the extraordinary city that is Bordeaux.

Private Food and Wine Tasting Tour

This tour is similar to that of our Private Walking Tour in that you will get a great understanding of the rich history that Bordeaux has to offer. However this tour will also include tasting some of the famous local treats and ends in one of the most fabulous wine bars of Bordeaux for a private wine tasting. Come along as we wander through Bordeaux’s gorgeous cobbled streets whilst we stop off at places you can’t leave Bordeaux without trying.

The visit will include:

  • Patisseries
  • Chocolate

A wonderful walking tour of Bordeaux. Sophia manages to weave much information about the history, the people, and the food of Bordeaux. She shares relevant information of herself and her journey to Bordeaux. We even went to a flea market and the city food market. Would definitely recommend this tour. Such a beautiful person full of knowledge of Bordeaux

We did a two hour walking tour of beautiful Bordeaux with the delightful Sophia. She totally brought Bordeaux to life, sharing a mixture of history and current day information to create a truly intriguing and enjoyable walk around this historic city. Our only regret was that we didn't do this on day one, and book another tour with Sophia during our stay. Sophia kindly shared so many tips for our stay - which made for a wonderful experience. If you are looking for an English speaking guide, I cannot rate her highly enough.

Sophia was amazing & made our tour so much fun with her extensive knowledge of Bordeaux! It was a pleasure to have her as our guide & she bowled us over with her enthusiasm. She was the perfect balance of warmth & professionalism & elevated our tour experience immensely! Will definitely be sending family & friends to see her if they visit Bordeaux!

Sophia, of Bordelais, is one of the best guides we have experienced in our lifetime. We have seen knowledgeable guides, funny guides, hyper-planned guides, native guides; but we have hardly seen the joyous passion that Sophia exudes in her walking tours across the nooks and corners of the lovely city of Bordeaux. Not only does she know every single minute detail of the city, but she also provides an impartial valuable recommendation beyond her tour. We took this esteemed walking tour on the first week of January 2023, on our very short visit to Bordeaux, and unanimously felt that no Bordeaux visit (for tourists of any age) can every be complete without experiencing the Sophia Walking Tour under the aegis of Bordelais. Grateful!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of Bordeaux with Sophia. Her anecdotes, stories, histories, and recent events made for a very enjoyable day. Dashed into a quaint little coffee shop for a little break just as the rains came.

Si vous prévoyez de visiter Bordeaux , je vous recommande Sophia pour une visite guidée. Une guide expérimentée qui vous apporte une visite unique et enrichissante en partageant ses connaissances sur Bordeaux. Je vous encourage donc vivement à envisager cette option pour votre venue. De plus Sophia est adorable et très souriante, ce qui rend l'expérience encore plus sympathique.

We had a wonderful tour with Sophia! From start to finish it was fun and interesting. She is full of friendly energy that is contagious! We followed her around Bordeaux tasting the local delicacies while hearing about the history as well as modern day stories of the city. Her story telling is fabulous and she keeps you engaged constantly with her passion for the city. We left with a list of places to go back to visit, where to go for the best coffee, cheese, books as well as a knowledge of the history and real life in Bordeaux. Can't wait for our next visit which will start with another tour with Sophia..for sure!!

We spent a morning touring Bordeaux with Sophie and it was the perfect way learn some history, see the sights and get acquainted with the city. We also tried several of her excellent restaurant suggestions during our stay. Sophie is a great guide; enthusiastic, knowledgeable and charming. Definitely recommend.

Tour Guide

I cannot wait to take you around Bordeaux. This fabulous city is like a less frequented, mini Paris. If you’re a foodie then we will get on well – I know where to find the most delicious French pâtisseries, the freshest seafood and the venues only locals know about.

Each tour will include the history of Bordeaux but I’ll tell it in a way so that even my 14 year old self would have been interested.

Bordeaux has been my adopted home since 2017. I can’t wait to welcome you here and show you this extraordinary city through my eyes.
