First I want to commend you for choosing to hire a ToursByLocals guide. Once you experience a private tour, you will never want to go back to the impersonal group tours run by guides who cover the same ground and tell the same story every day. With a private guide, the tour will reflect your individual interests allowing you to make the most of your limited time as a tourist.
Now a little about me. . . .
I am an American and have been living with a Frenchman since 1998. In 2003 I dragged him back to France with a baby in tow and the rest is history. Now that my children are older and attend school all day, I spend as much time as possible in cafés sipping espresso or wine. I have learned so much in my time here and I love sharing my experiences with curious travelers.
As a food enthusiast, I have made it my mission to discover the best that Bordeaux has to offer and I will share with you all of my favorite restaurants and gourmet shops. Whether you want fine dining or a riverside picnic, I know where to take you. I will help you avoid the tourist traps and only take you to the places appreciated by locals.
And of course I will show you the beautiful monuments and architectural highlights, making sure to tailor the tour to your interests.
I hope you are excited about your upcoming trip to Bordeaux. There are so many wonderful things to see and experience and I am anxious to share them with you.
A Recent Review of this guide
Stephanie did an outstanding job for us. She is very pleasant, communicates well, and is highly knowledgeable about Bordeaux and its history. As she is an American, married to a Frenchman, and who has lived in France and in Bordeaux for many years, she is naturally fluent in English. She will provide you with various insights that you may not get from a guidebook or other guides. I recommend her highly and without reservation.

I do not go to La Rochelle or Verdon-sur-Mer to pick up cruise shop passengers because these locations are 2 hours from Bordeaux.
