Full description
Join us in the heart of the historic center of Bordeaux at the charming Place Raymond Colom, the ideal meeting point to start this magnificent bike ride. On the agenda: Discovering Bordeaux together in a convivial atmosphere, lots of smiles and well-being. Once equiped, ready for the adventure ahead, we will make our way towards the oldest door of Bordeaux, the Grosse Cloche (also known as the “Big Bell”) dating from the 13th century. Then we shall cross the Saint-Michel district, famous for its local market before quickly reaching the magnificent Pont de Pierre bridge to cross the Garonne river. This trajectory offers us a unique view of the “Port of the Moon” and its majestic facade dating from the 18th century. This will be the perfect moment to share with you the history of Bordeaux over the centuries. We will stroll along the Parc des Angéliques (“Angelic Park”) and across the Garonne river via the impressive Jacques Chaban-Delmas Bridge to explore some of the city’s most important sites. We will discover the Chartrons district, the historical heart of the wine trade in Bordeaux, which is famous for its wine cellars. We will resume our stroll along the charming Notre Dame Street. We’ll head for the beautiful Jardin Public (“Public Gardens”) and then the historic center, passing by the Quinconces esplanade and its monument dedicated to the Girondins, the Triangle d’or (“The Golden Triangle”), City Hall and the Saint-André Cathedral. Then we will go through the cobbled streets, pretty plazas (always animated thanks to their cafés!), and finally we will pass in front of the world famous Miroir D’eau (“Water Mirror”) before going to admire the second oldest city gate of Bordeaux and returning to our starting point. The itinerary may vary according to the weather, possible city events.

    A beautiful discovery of Bordeaux with nuggets (right bank and in particular Darwin, the public garden...), a small group, we were 6 with the guide. The bikes are comfortable and of good quality. The 12 km are carried out without difficulty with breaks, clear explanations on the genesis of Bordeaux, in good humor and exchange. A big thank you to our guide Laurie Anne who greatly contributed to the success of this fun and instructive walk. I recommend +++

    Jean-Christophe is an amazing guide -- he helped us safely navigate throughout the lovely city of Bordeaux and was very informative -- he shared about the history and architecture, complete with then and now pictures, and also described more recent changes in the city. Jean-Christophe was very friendly as well. We would wholeheartedly recommend this tour to anyone (who can ride a bike ;-) ).

    This bike tour with Jean-Christophe was absolutely a highlight of my trip! Everything about the process was a breeze, bikes were comfy, our route found some amazing spots I never would have seen otherwise, and Jean-Christophe really knew his stuff! Such a great way to be introduced to the city and get a little look into its history. 10/10!
