Journey through Bordeaux history and Private visit of Wine chateau


Our journey will begin with a 2 hour walking tour of the historical part of the city which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The city is home to more than 360 monuments (only Paris has more in France) with some buildings dating back to Roman times. The tour will help you enjoy some of the unique places and sites of the city.
We will have lunch in a traditional French restaurant, during which we can speak about wine and French culture.
After lunch we will travel to a charming wine chateau Grand Cru Classé where we will have a private visit of its vat rooms and cellar and we will finish the tour with a tasting of their wines.

Our journey will begin with a walk by the spectacular Place de la Bourse, the Bordeaux Cathedral St. Andre, la tour Pey-Berland next to the Cathedral, Porte Cailhau, Grand theatre de Bordeaux, Les Quais and the Place des Quinconces.

After a 2 hour walking city tour, we will have a lunch together in a nice French restaurant, during which we can speak about wine and French culture.

In the afternoon we will visit and taste one of the Grand Cru Classe chateaux de Graves, Chateau Bouscaut, Chateau Haut-Bailly or another charming estate.

A Recent Review of this tour

Galia made our trip to Bordeaux! Galia is a professional- her friendly welcoming nature and wealth of information on history and culture was exactly what we were looking for in our short time in Bordeaux. For our tour she organized a lunch reservation, transportation to Chateau Bouscaut for a private tour of the winery and a beautiful afternoon of exploring. When we return to Bordeaux we will hope to tour again with Galia!!
