Marie H.

Montlieu-la-Garde, France

Hi! My name is Marie. I'm a licensed guide offering private tours in Bordeaux and Cognac areas.

I cannot wait to welcome you in the heart of Bordeaux wineries and Cognac distilleries, in my beautiful city of Bordeaux which has recently topped the most attractive destinations listed by Lonely Planet guide!

I guide for 15 years and I am really passionate in my job. I am 38 and I am mother of 2 children, 10 & 6.

I had a degree in Tourism from the Bordeaux University and a guiding license in 2003. I have started to work as a tour leader in western Europe before coming back to my birth place and starting my business as a local guide.

I passed different trainings regarding wine tasting and Cognac tasting.

I am also a licensed private driver (VTC in France with a up to date license).

I provide tours in English and French. I offer different tours in Bordeaux, in Bordeaux wineries including Saint-Emilion and Cognac vineyards. If you are ready to get a bit of mud on your shoes but having a real and authentic experience in our region, I am your guide !
My goal is to let you have an experience off the beaten tracks and to make your travel unique and unforgettable.

I will always do my best to provide you an unforgettable trip in my region by customizing my tours depending on your interests and expectations. So dn't be surprise if I ask so many questions after you contacted me. . . I just try to get to know you better and to make sure that my offer will match at best what you expect!

I am looking forward to welcoming you in Bordeaux or in Cognac!

See you soon

Marie

A Recent Review of this guide

We had a great afternoon tour with Marie. Leaving at 1:30 meant no traffic issues and we took in two premiere grand cru vineyards and tastings as well as a tour of the beautiful underground sites at St. Emillion. The tasting at Beau Sejour Becot included tasting the unfermented and partially fermented Merlot. We missed the crowds from 2 cruise ships in Bordeaux who had large by doing a later tour. Marie carried on a lively conversation, and was a font of new knowledge we had nor heard on other tours
