What people are saying about Bordeaux

Very interesting and informative visit. Our guide (Jourdan) even went over the allotted time to tell us as many anecdotes as possible. Only downside (but not prohibitive): there is walking, and this encroaches on the time allotted for more stories or details. Do not hesitate to question her, because she is very available and responsive.

Great walking tour with Jourdan - I learned a lot about the history of Bordeaux and how the city has changed through the years. There were also dragons, werewolves, and lions! I was the only one on the tour and Jourdan was very attentive and friendly. Definitely recommend if in Bordeaux!
