Landmarks of Bordeaux


It is said that walls have ears – they also have guides, to reveal their secrets

The first tour is a 2h tour which highlights Bordeaux’s most famous landmarks. We will discuss the Grand Theatre located in the heart of downtown, and the monument to the Girondins whose fountain was slated to become scrap metal during WWII. We will then move on to the Allée de Tourny and its role in the architecture of this 18th-century city. We will cross the rue Sainte-Catherine – the city’s main street for 2000 years – landing us in the Saint-Pierre district, famous for its cafes and restaurants. The tour ends at the Place de la Bourse which was built by King Louis XV in the early 1700's as the Royal Plaza, and is renowned for its beautiful façade, highlighted by the water mirror. This tour ensures you discover Bordeaux’s beautiful neighborhoods and unique history.

The second tour is a relaxed Landmarks of Bordeaux tour, lasting 2 and a half hours. It will allow you to photograph each site at your leisure, and to further discuss the rich history of this city, classified UNESCO World Heritage Site. Ideal if you want to take your time and enjoy more anecdotes.

The last option is a 3h long Landmarks of Bordeaux tour, with an added emphasis on medieval times. We will enter the city through the Renaissance gate and follow the footsteps of the dukes of Aquitaine through the cobbled medieval streets. You will get a chance to admire the oldest gate into the city, dating back to the XIIIth century, and end with the tour with the remarkable Saint-André cathedral.

We (2 persons) had booked a walking tour with a guide (in English). Everything is well organised, we received a mail with photo and tel-nr, in case we had difficulties finding Claire. We had a very nice morning-walk, where Claire showed how much she really knows her city (and in perfect English). We asked many questions along the walk but Claire did not loose her well-prepared information and also managed to answer all our questions. very nive little gimmick that some (excellent, special) canelés were offered! We were through history, social and economic development and many other aspects.. We also got some good tips and tricks about Bordeaux!

Bordeaux by foot. Our guide Hela was quite superb. Extremely knowledgeable and really knew her city. We were four in our party and everyone said the same.

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 !!!
