Guess you didn’t know, Lucy was in an accident and tour was understandably canceled. Waiting for refund. Other tours with your group have been fine.

Labour Day in Bordeaux
Surath_C
, May 2022
It was Labour Day and we were expecting the worst. But this young lady turned up with her jokes, effervescent behaviour- all leading up to a fun 2 hours. I will however give her a feedback - we should have snacked the market. It looked so good. Suggest we do the right seeing first and the food market last

The title of the activity...
MarieSimard
, May 2022
The title of the activity does not match what we experienced. There was no local food tasting at the market, we did go to a restaurant which did not seem happy to have us there to have 1 appetizer dish, we had 1 tasting of a local rose wine, nothing else was offered and it was done it seemed as a last minute surprise to the wine shop personnel. Our guide was delightful so none of the above is on her but I think that the description of the activity should be more realistic, perhaps tasting local foods at the beautiful market, a more diverse wine tasting of Bordeaux offerings, etc.

Cancelled at less than two hours notice; no alternative offered. A decent tour company would have a back up plan.

My experience was cancelled 1 hr before pickup. It could have been great, it mightve been poor. I will never know. Be cautious of any such bookings during the pandemic period

We showed up at the designated tourist office on time and there was no guide. We showed our voucher in the tourist office and they directed us to the only guide and group outside. When we realized it was not a gourmet tour we called Viator. They had the guide call us. We asked her to call us with instructions and she never called us. There was no tour for us

Must-do your in Bordeaux

Margot was excellent! We tried a variety of local food and stopped at a well-curated wine shop. Margot clearly has solid relationships with each of the shop/stand workers that we went to, and she also knew so much about regional history and the background of all the food we tried. Absolutely recommend her!

Old town and market food tour
Britt_F
, Jan 2020
The good: The Basque region was a major focal point of the tour, much more so than what I was expecting given we were in Bordeaux. The food was very unique to this region and I don't think I would have tried some of the items without having the guide explain and push to try new things. The guide was very knowledgable. Things to be aware of: Overall it was a good experience, I just wish I would have dressed more warmly given the time of year and that we were not inside as much as I thought we would be. So dress as if you will be outside and standing for most of the tour and knowing it gets very windy. I also wish I would have also known more French than I did. Even though the tour was in English, there were other non-English speakers on the tour with us. The guide had to switch back and forth, which is fine but sometimes it was hard to concentrate on what was being said due to the switching back and forth. If you are concerned, I would ask after booking if you will be the only people on the tour or if the tour will be multi lingual. I think if I would have known that it may have better prepped me for the day because I thought if I chose English it would have all been in English.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2020
Dear Britt, We are really sorry to read that review. Actually our tours are in English, but the customers who were with you made a mistake, and thought it was in French. For this reason your guide decided to not leave them, to include them in your small group of five, and translate them the informations. Sorry again for this. We hope to see you again another day !

A culinary delight in Bordeaux
Matthew D
, Oct 2019
We had originally signed up for the morning tour, but were shifted to a 4:00pm start due to guide availability. Steph was knowledgeable regarding the foods and wines of Bordeaux, and a very engaging host. He spoke of sustainability, the traditional foods and history of the region, and current trends. Our 10 tasting stops included chocolates, cannell’s, cheeses, pastries, salamis and cured meats, olive oils, wines and more. All in all it was an incredible introduction into the foods and wines of Bordeaux. We would highly recommend this tour!

Refund?

The tour guide was sick and had to cancel. They called the day before to let me know which i appreciated. However, Am not certain i received a refund. If the host cancels i think they should take care of that without me having to make a bunch of phone calls.

Excellent Tour, Excellent Guide

I really enjoyed this tour. I would definitely recommend skipping breakfast and bringing your appetite, because although the portions may seem small, I promise if you try a bit of everything you will be full by the end. Margot was very knowledgeable and easygoing. All the places we went to were high quality and delicious (my favorites were the canele and the cheese). You won't be disappointed!

Nous avons beaucoup appréciés la promenade et les différentes dégustations. Les portions sont généreuses ce qui permet de bien savourer chaque bouchée. Sans oublier que nous avons également eu droit à du vin pour accompagner trois de nos dégustations. La visite est d’au moins trois heures et une bouteille d’eau est incluse. Ayez de bons souliers de marche! Margot est une excellente guide. Elle nous a donné quelques bonnes adresses de restaurants.
