    Passionate/enthusiastic guide

    Great guide. Tour was a little delayed as other tour (french)at same time and had to wait for space (map) to be available when other group moved on. Very informative however note that tour is 2 hours long and the wine / sit down after tour ends - in 34 degrees this was uncomfortable so an opportunity to rest would have been appreciated.

    The tour guide was great! He was knowledgeable and funny so he kept us interested in the tour. He also grew in Bordeaux so knew a lot of people all over the city. He showed us great spots to eat and grab drinks. We also went to our free drinks at the end of the tour and the place had excellent wines at reasonable prices.
