L'Épicurienne

39 € / adult

Bordeaux is not only renowned for its fine wines; it’s also one of France’s gastronomic centers and a top destination for traveling foodies. This 2.5-hour tour is tailor-made for food lovers, taking you to some of Bordeaux’s best artisan food shops. Discover local delicacies and learn about French cuisine as you visit a delicatessen, cheesemonger, patisserie, and spice shop, and sample a variety of delicious foods.

  • Discovery of Bordeaux, its architecture
  • Sample delicious meats, cheeses, pastries, and regional specialties
  • Meeting with artisans

"L’Épicurienne" is a gourmet tour where we alternate between the visit of Bordeaux’s historic center and meet with some actors of Bordeaux’s gastronomy with whom we will talk, share and taste.

We will begin our tasting with Maison Seguin's sweet treats. Our escapade will continue in the cheese shop where we will taste the best of our local cheeses.We will walk through the cobblestone streets of Saint Michel and Saint Paul to discover some architectural gems. Guided by the irresistible smell of vanilla from the Congo, white pepper from Penja, cinnamon from Ceylon, we will meet Ludovic. Passionate about spices and Bordeaux, he will tell us the story of the Port of the Moon ... We will finish with the Capuchin market, "the belly of Bordeaux", where we will discover all sorts of local products and taste a good bottle of wine.

The order and choice of the tastings will depend on the availability of the artisans.

Lucie l'accompagnatrice nous a fait déambuler dans bordeaux avec le sourire et dans la bonne humeur. J'ai découvert des adresses avec des commercants sympathique et ai dégusté des mets delicieux. La reservation en ligne se fait simplement et un texto est envoyé la veille pour rappel du lieu de RDV. Je recommande vivement cet activité.

Bonjour Virginie, Lucie et Jeanne ont passé un très bon moment avec vous. La bonne humeur ne vient pas seule, il faut un ingrédient majeur... Des personnes curieuses et sympathiques avec qui nous avons envie de partager. Merci pour votre avis et à très vite pour de nouvelles aventures gourmandes.

L'Èpicurienne is a good start to see Bordeaux and the gastronomic culture
Ellen Cathrine Borthen 09/19/2019
We thought it was an interesting tour and the guide spoke English well. But one thing we would like the guide to do is: Stop up more often and make sure all participants who want to hear, is gathered before the guide start talking. Our experience was that our guide had a lot of interesting things to tell, but there were no clear sign when she started to tell, and often she talked while walking. She had a lot of knowledge about Bordeaux, but unfortunately it was very hard to listen to her while walking. I will definitely recommend this tour to others!

Great morning in bordeaux

A good way to see Bordeaux and learn a bit about some of the food producers/retailers. The guide was informative, helpful and ensured everything was explained in both French and English (the 'intern' made less of a contribution!). If you book this walk allow a bit more time as it was not rushed, some of the producers took their time and it overan a bit (not a complaint - we were happy to have the extra time and enjoyed hearing about the food production/sourcing.
