Guided tour

Bordeaux walking tour

From 12€ / pers

Discover the historic city centre with a knowledgeable guide. This 2 hour guided walking tour includes some of the city’s most remarkable 18th century architecture, as well as the highlights of the UNESCO World Heritage area.

  • guided tour
  • old district
  • main sights

Discovering Bordeaux on foot is the best way to experience the city’s diversity. The ‘City of The Lumières’, drawn up with a compass by 18th century architects and town planners, is synonymous with harmony: hôtels particuliers, beautiful squares and avenues are spread all along this route that takes you through picturesque areas like Saint Rémi and Saint Pierre quarters.

Some of the winding streetshave not changed since the Middle Ages. “Blondstone” is present everywhere, including in the sculpted faces that sit atop the city centre doorways,the mascarons. These stand as remarkable examples of art and masonry.

Very good and entertaining tour! Top guide!!!

Only problem is that at the time of booking, you should watch out because the walking tour is free if you buy the Bordeaux City Pass but you cannot make a reservation for the walking tour without making a booking for the tour itself and there you cannot register your City Pass... Not very logical. The people at the Tourist Office seem to be aware of the issue and give a refund if you happen to make such a double booking.

Interesting but challenging for English speakers
S.B. 10/26/2021
Booking was easy. Our tour guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable. I know it's a challenge to lead a bilingual tour. For the French speakers, everything was clear and interesting. For the English speakers in our group, it was very difficult for them to follow as the guide would say half a sentence in French, translate into English, and back again into French throughout the tour. I think the pace was too fast for them to follow. If you understand some French, maybe you won't have this problem!

Good introduction to the history of Bordeaux
Joseph Lacovara 10/19/2021
The tour provided a good introduction to the history of Bordeaux, however I wish that the guide spoke more in English. Unfortunately most of our tour was given in French and there wasn't enough English explanation so it wasn't as easy to follow along. It would be better if the tours could be separate so that there is an English only tour and a French only tour so that the guide has more time to explain the history in each language.

I loved this tour. It provides interesting information on the history of Bordeaux and its sites. The bilingual nature was especially good for me because I am studying French. The guide was knowledgeable and helpful. I definitely recommend it.
