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.

We had a fantastic walking tour with Stephanie. As she is an American who has lived 20 years in France, she has a unique perspective. I recommend her highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much! I enjoyed your company as well and I hope to see your daughter soon :)

We had an excellent time with Stephanie. Learned a lot, especially about differences between French and American culture. We highly recommend her and Bordeaux.

Stephanie was just fantastic. She spent the entire afternoon with us. We learned the history of the city and region as we visited all the highlights.. She never rushed us, treated us to coffee/pastry. Perhaps best of all was getting an "inside" look at the culture and mindset of the French people from the point of view of an American. We made a new friend today!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I feel exactly the same way! Enjoy your amazing day in the Medoc today and let me know the next time you are i n Bordeaux!

Stephanie is incredibly knowledgeable about the country and its history. The fact that she is an American means that her English is impeccable plus she has insight as to the questions American visitors may have. We spent 4 hours seeing Bordeaux and hearing its history. LOVED it!!!

Stephanie was tremendous. She was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. As an American now living in France, she gave us insights into the French people and culture from an American perspective. I would rate her a 10 on a scale of 10.

This was a reunion tour for us as Stephanie was our fabulous guide 2 yrs ago And again, she was wonderful. She walked us around the city giving historic and cultural perspective. She's the type of guide you feel is like an old friend. I highly recommend her when in Bordeaux for any trip you want to take; I'm confident you will be thrilled!
Sara RubinUnited States
Stephanie was an absolutely wonderful guide. She is knowledgeable about history, architecture, wine, food and local customs. Stephanie's tour allowed us to later feel at ease in navigating Bordeaux on our own despite our lack of French language skills! I highly recommend using Stephanie as a guide.
Very interesting and informative tour of the Historic area of Bordeaux. Would highly recommend !

Stephanie guided our 4-hr walking tour ("Bordeaux Highlights"). This American expat has lived in Bordeaux for about 10 years & is extremely knowledgeable regarding the history & culture of Bordeaux. She changed the tour time to conform better to our interests & extended the time to include lunch at a great sidewalk café so we could soak up the city rather than race around to fit everything in. She is very personable & a lot of fun. A GREAT guide whom we would highly recommend for this half day tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind words. I had a lovely day with you. One little clarification though: An expatriate (often shortened to expat) is a person temporarily or permanently residing in a country other than that of their citizenship. I am actually a tax paying French citizen and have been since 2002 ��

Stephanie exceeded every one of our expectations. She was extremely well informed, knowledgeable, gracious, patient and charming. We can't recommend her highly enough.
Stephanie was a superb tour guide. Very knowledgeable, thorough, patient, warm and caring. She showed us around Bordeaux for two days, and was able to answer just about any question our group of travelers posed. She showed us some lesser-known sights, and all with great warmth and enthusiasm. She spoke clearly and not overboard on dates and details. No one lost interest. We would have loved to have stayed with her for several more days, and consider ourselves lucky to have found her.

Stephanie was absolutely charming!!!! We enjoyed our tour with her completely. She was gracious, friendly, intelligent and made everything very interesting. She had a great knowledge of the history of France and Bordeaux in particular. She was extremely aware of what we would like and accommodated us completely. We would highly recommend a tour with her.

Stephanie was amazing! I had some very special requests which she carried out well beyond the call of duty. Not to mention her astounding knowledge of Bordeaux and it's fascinating history. She took me to the best lunch place ever as well! I would hire her again before going to anybody else in the area. I whole heartedly recommend her to anybody looking to tour Bordeaux.
This experience was amazing! Stephanie puts all her passion into showing you the local history and culture. She was always concerned to give me the best overview of Bordeaux... we tasted wines, traditional food, visited different shops but, above all, we shared moments and experiences that showed me Bordeaux through a different angle (and how good it felt!). We couldn't visit the Wine school, however I went there afterwards and it's a place that no one should miss! Thanks Stepahnie... I felt welcomed!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you :) I too was sorry the Maison du Vin was closed during our time together, but I am so glad you went back later. I look forward to visiting your wine bar in Porto one day very soon!

One of the best tour guides we've experienced. Wonderful historian and most enthusiastic. English and French superb. A most enjoyable experience.
Denise ChaseUnited States
We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Stephanie planned our day in Bordeaux perfectly -- the right balance of history, culture, tasty food and local flair. It was particularly nice to get an expat's perspective on the French lifestyle. We highly recommend her for anyone visiting the area.
Jean OconnellUnited States
We had a wonderful day with Stephanie in Bordeaux. Her knowledge of French history and culture was impressive. We toured the city walking and riding the tram and enjoyed a break at a café for coffee and the most wonderful pastries we have ever eaten. Stephanie was warm and friendly, flexible to our needs and I would not hesitate to recommend her tour guide services. Bravo!
