A Recent Review of this tour

Isabelle is a friendly, outgoing and knowledgeable guide. Couldn't have asked for a better tour of Bordeaux in the time we had to spend. Great visit through the old part of town and the historic sites as a well as a trip to the wine Museum for a tasting. Also had some time for a snack and a little momento shopping. Great tour!
