NOT a Food tour
Stefani_K
, Jun 2022
If you are looking for a food tour this is not it. We came hungry/didn’t eat breakfast because most food tours feed you until you can’t breath. It wasn’t the case for this tour. We had 1 canale (tiny cake), 2 pieces of chocolate, and a few pieces of Spanish iberco ham. Why we had Spanish ham on a french tour is very confusing. More of a history tour with a snack or two

Good Overall Intro Tour
Lisa_N

Was able to see a lot of Bourdeaux in half a day. These included several neighborhoods, old city gates and monuments. The tour guide was new to the job and rushed us too much. She did not have us introduce ourselves. The stops for canele, sausage, chocolate and coffee were good.

Nice guide but this most certainly was not a gourmet food tour by any standards. Please do not offer this again. Ask anyone what a gourmet good tour is. You visit and eat at the facilities. If this cannot be arranged and paid for your company then don’t do it and stop fooling peopke

We started our tour with Deborah in the rain, but her sunny disposition made us all glad to be there. She provided lots of information as we walked around charming Bordeaux. We stopped first for pastries and coffee, and everyone picked out something for dessert later. Our next stop was at a very famous chocolate shop which exceeded my expectations. We then tasted fabulous local cheeses, one named a “best of the year”. Again, we picked out some for later. We then went for a lovely lunch with wine, supplemented by our favorite cheeses and sweets. We didn’t feel any remorse, as we had walked it off in advance! A wonderful way to spend a few hours in this beautiful place!

Our tour guide Crystal was really wonderful. She was able to show us highlights and historical parts of the city. She also shared her passion and knowledge for the culinary offerings of Bordeaux. She was knowledgeable and enthusiastic and was able to answer all of our questions. We ALL recommend this trip and recommned Crystal as a guide.

I think that going to the chocolate shop was my favorite stop, we saw how the candies are made, sampled chocolates from around the world and tried some of the chocolate candies as well. It was fascinating to learn how chocolate candies are made from Cocoa bean to candy. We learned a lot about the history of the city and the changes in the last 20 or 30 years. At the apartment we had a fun lunch of Charcuterie, Quiche Lorraine, a salad, and wine. This is a good way to get acquainted with the area especially if you are staying in the Saint Michel or Chartrons areas. Sorry, I don't have photo's at this time, if I am able to edit this review later I will post some, but I may have only taken them at the chocolate shop...

Very nice tour. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Bordeaux and we had a lot of time at each stop. Sampled pastries, cheeses, and had a great tour of a chocolate shop that dates back to the 1800's. The tour ended with lunch at the Viator dining room. It was very nice, plenty of food and wine and samples picked up on the walking tour. It was also nice to have the time to visit more with the other couple on the tour.

This one was great. We got a tour of the city and went to the best bakery where we had coffee and pastries that were delicious. Then we went to the chocolate factory and learned a lot about making chocolate and tasted a lot of them. The last one was the cheese store. We had 3 very good chesses. After all that we went for lunch. We had a very good quiche and lots of wine. We ended up buying some wine to ship home. The whole experience was fantastic.

Our guide was very friendly as well as knowledgeable about his hometown. Of course we saw the important buildings and monuments but our visit to a special bakery where we had their bread and some coffee was a pleasant break in the walk. We also stopped at a cheese shop for a tasting. The highlight was our stop at the chocolate shop where everything was a work of art. Upstairs we saw the professionals at work and tasted different varieties of chocolate. The tour ended with a nice lunch with wine, naturally.

So well organized. Great tour guide. The chocolate factory tour was far better than the one included in our cruise excursion version. More to view, sample, and be told about the whole process not just a visit to a shop for mere purchases. Left wonderful memories.

This was a well spent 4 hours in Bordeaux. The guide was lovely and the pace of the walking tour was good. The stops were well planned and the little chocolate kitchen was especially informative. The lunch back at the office was also good. The dining area is in an apartment building but is the office of a local wine tour group.

A great way to walk around Bordeaux and taste some fabulous food. The best being the chocolate shop we visited where chocolates are still made by hand. Got to taste as many as we liked. Then visited the shop to purchase chocolates. Wished we had bought more as the best chocolates I have ever tasted and very reasonably priced. Lunch was also very nice in an apartment in Bordeaux and served with wine. Guide very knowledgeable. Great walking tour all over Bordeaux.
