Marie H.


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 37 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 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.

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

See you soon


A Recent Review of this guide

Our tour guide, Marie was exceptional. Her tour of St Emilion and the wineries was the highlight of our trip in that part of France. She met us at the cruise ship in a clean van and took us to a beautiful winery with a tour and a fabulous lunch at a chateau on the grounds. She created a customized tour . Her knowledge of the area is quite impressive. Marie has a great personality and we had a wonderful day with her.
