Artisan & Architecture


Discover how Bordeaux became the beautiful city it is today

Our city owes its beauty to the artisans, carpenters, workers, and architects who built it. This tour is a tribute to them, and a way of imparting their knowledge to you. We will reveal the artistic and architectural history behind our façades while walking through Bordeaux’s most beautiful neighborhoods. We will enter artisans’ workshops to discover the techniques involved in forging iron or carving limestone. The wrought iron is used to create our beautiful balconies, and the omnipresent limestone is what gave the city its title of “the Aquitaine blonde”.

Veronique as a guide
Excellent start for anyone to get a grasp of the architecture and how the city evolved,showed the group around the city centre pointing out things that we would never have noticed ,such as the different balcony styles.Veronique was patient with everyone and gave good advice.(traduction par TripAdvisor)

The company was recommended to us by a friend, and now I can see why! It was certainly one of the highlights of our vacation. The guides were all very friendly, experienced, and professional which made it a real treat.

No better way to discover Bordeaux
We had a long walk around the city with Hela (English native speaker) who knows really everything about Bordeaux, French history & wines. A very entertaining storyteller - we are really happy to discover Bordeaux this way. We now know far more about the city than the friends who have always been living here. And the info, the booking & paying thru website & SMS were so easy. 10 points !!!
