Itinerary
Begin your 4-hour gourmet exploration of Bordeaux by meeting your guide near Place des Quinconces in the city center. This food tour ambles through Bordeaux and a very leisurely pace, giving you time to marvel at the historic beauty of the city's architecture. Listen as your professional foodie guide offers insight into Bordeaux's culinary history as you walk.

Visit a favorite local bakery, with inviting scents of freshly-baked baguettes surrounding you as you meet the baker and sample some handmade treats.

Next, visit one of the most famous chocolatiers in the city to meet the owner. Generations have kept the shop's recipes secret, and though you may never be able to duplicate what you taste you'll certainly enjoy the samples. Unique flavor components include green tea, olive and ginger.

Follow your guide to a cheese shop to learn about the cheese-making traditions that make French cheese so world-famous while you sample cheeses from different parts of the country, including Roquefort, Brie and Comté.

After all this sampling, finish your tour with a visit to a typical apartment for a buffet-style lunch. Take your pick from the generous array of food offerings, including many of the items you sampled earlier in the tour, accompanied by some excellent Bordeaux wine. Conclude your lunch with a traditional Bordeaux cake called a canelé. The tour ends after lunch.

Remi is an incredible guide!

The tour was informative of both modern culture and the history that defined much of the region. Remi was warm, gregarious, and magnetic in leading our small group. He made us feel right at home in Bordeaux.

Feels like family

Excellent, knowledgable guide. Choose your own dessert and cheese from specialist boutique shops followed by lunch in a “typical” Bordelaise house (which also doubles as tourist company’s HQ). Small group, intimate feel. A great way to sample Bordeaux.
