Wonderful Personalised tour and shore excursion
Hela is a most amazing tour guide and made our tour of Bordeaux an outstanding experience, recognising our special interest in Judaism. The tour was conducted at exactly the right pace for six senior citizens of varying degrees of fitness. Our visit to the synagogue was especially wonderful. Thank you Hela for a most wonderful day.
A tour of Jewish Bordeaux
Hella was delightful. She gave us history of Bordeaux that none of our other tour guides gave us. She arranged for a tour of the synagogue with one of the members as our guide. Definitely recommend this tour.
Bordeaux Walking Tours
I did two tours with Bordeaux Walking Tours One was a review of the Jewish history of Bordeaux which is quite intriguing as well as leaders of the city historically It was presented with both in depth knowledge and passion and included a visit to the synagogue on a Sunday which was by special and much appreciated arrangement The other was a two hour walking tour of the city which again was presented with passion and enthusiasm I highly recommend Bordeaux Walking Tours It is a professional enthusiast and welcoming organization
