Isabelle A.

Saint Médard de Guizieres, France

Bonjour! My name is Isabelle. I'm a professional private tour guide in the Bordeaux area, France.

Come along with me to live a fun and informative experience!

I graduated in tourism, languages and art history in the area of Lyon. I started as a professional guide in Paris some 20 years ago. I settled in Bordeaux with my husband and felt in love with the region! I 've been mainly working as a guide but also spent some years in communication and Press Relation, that took me behind the curtain with an in-depth view on wine topics. Two years in a winery was among the great experiences. I am now a member of the Bordeaux Guide Association.

I am 42, happy mother of two teen daughters. I've been a long time passionate about culture and exchanges, I strongly believe that travelling is one of the best ways to encounter people and connect. According to most people I met during my life, I am a cheerful person, reliable and professional, fun and enthusiastic, and very flexible. Above all, I love sharing what I know, what I like and even what I want to explore. Come along with me, you will be treated as my friends, you will discover my place with an insight view and I will create opportunities to have friendly discussions with locals.

I provide tours in English, French and German. I offer different tours in Bordeaux and Saint-Emilion, including the highlights and the hidden jewels. They will always be adapted to fit your own expectations. Be ready to use your different senses during our tour! My area is famous all over the world for its fine wines. While discovering Bordeaux or Saint-Emilion I will give you the keys to understand what makes the Bordeaux wines so special, through the history, the culture, the nowadays economy… I also offer to take you into the wine tasting with practical exercises. Indeed some of my tours include an introduction to wine tasting. Have a look at the description of my exclusive private tours to find the best one for you. I'm ready to welcome you in Bordeaux!

A Recent Review of this guide

Isabelle did a great job showing our group the highlights of Bordeaux. A couple people had walking issues and she we great working with these issues. Because of a last minute change in the location of the ship she worked with us to meet us at the new location. If we are in Bordeaux again we would tour with her again.
