My friends and I thank Isabelle for a memorable tour of the beautiful village of Saint Emilion. Isabelle is very knowledgeable about the history and cultural aspects of the village and its buildings. Thanks to Isabelle, we also walked through some beautiful spots in the village. Special thanks to Isabelle for picking us up from the train station, arranging for a limo to Bordeaux on short notice, and making a lunch reservation for us. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pat, thank you so much. Your deep interest about France and it’s culture and the enthousiasm of the four of you to discover my beloved saint Emilion helped a lot. I was glad to help in the organisation of your stay to turn the tour in a great experience. I’m delighted you had a good time :) I wish you a lot of great tours with Toursbylocals.

Isabelle was a wonderful guide, enthusiastic, friendly, knowledgeable and a great storyteller. We truly enjoyed the itinerary she had planned for us and from the very start felt like we were with someone we had known for years.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, Thank you so much! This might be from your French roots ;) I enjoyed particularly the chat we had along the afternoon all together and your interest in various topics. It’s a great chance to have been your local guide!

5 stars indeed. We had a group of 15 people to tour Bordeaux chateaux and historic sites for two days. Isabelle and I communicated about our ideas and transportation ahead of time but she did the selections of vehicle and sites to visit. She did a perfect job of it and was a personable and very enjoyable guide. Very knowledgeable about wines. All 15 people thought Isabelle was marvelous. We would definitely book with her again when we next visit the area!

Isabelle was an excellent guide and provided a wonderful tour of Bordeaux. There were many things to see in Bordeaux and Isabelle made sure all of the sites were visited in just a short time frame. Isabelle was enthusiastic and prepared with photos and a has a detailed knowledge of the history of Bordeaux, both past and present and showed great interest in the local region. Sites visited include the Grand Theatre, Basilica, the big bell and the original main gate to the city, the water mirror, and more!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Brian! It’s a delight to be the local guide of travelers as enthusiastic as you and your wife were and an honor to be the one you spent your one and unique moment in Bordeaux. Wish you a lot of great experiences around the world!

Isabelle is a friendly, outgoing and knowledgeable guide. Couldn't have asked for a better tour of Bordeaux in the time we had to spend. Great visit through the old part of town and the historic sites as a well as a trip to the wine Museum for a tasting. Also had some time for a snack and a little momento shopping. Great tour!

Isabelle is a top notch guide. She was waiting with a big smile as we arrived at agreed time / place. She confirmed the pick up location/timing with our driver. Important because our group ranged from 3 to 71. She was very knowledgeable, provided helpful answers and interesting sidebars. Our group of 8 stretched out over quite a distance but she adjusted to our pace. We had a pleasant break for the Grandkids snack time. She even purchased Caneles Baillardrans for us. We recommend Isabelle very highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dan, I enjoyed so much your family and the personnality of everyone, especially the grandkids ! I wish you many great trips across the world and great experiences with Toursbylocals guides. Warm regards Isabelle
Great and very knowledgable guide! I would definetely contact her on my next visit to Bordeaux . Highly recommended!

Isabelle was absolutelty a delight. She is very attractive, knowledgeable,.attentive and responsive to whatever is requested of her. She revealed St. Emilion and Pomerol to us far beyond just good wine and countryside. We could not recommend her more highly.

My wife and I had a wonderful tour of Bordeaux with Isabelle. She has a very pleasant, engaging personality and speaks excellent English. Her fund of knowledge was excellent. Prior to our tour we asked her if she could arrange a tour of the Jewish Synagogue in Bordeaux which she was able to do, and we enjoyed the tour very much. If you want a fabulous tour of Bordeaux, book Isabelle, you won't be sorry.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alan, Thanks a lot for this very kind feedback. I took so much pleasure guiding you through Bordeaux and especially I enjoyed discovering the inside of the synagogue thanks to you. I wish you many great trips to come! Warm regards, Isabelle
We could not have been more pleased with our tour guide Isabelle. She offered us a spectacular customized tour along the streets of Bordeaux, which lasted two hours and ended in a local wine bar with excellent wine, ham and cheese. We were conveniently picked up at our hotel, learned a lot about Bordeaux including its insider spots. Neither our "pokemon-GO" playing group member nor our special demands (toilet stop because of too much beer in advance) were able to affect her very charming nature.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Noclà, I really enjoyed the time we spent all together! It was fun. Hope you had a great time on the Dune! Isabelle

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your feedback, I hope you had a great time for the end of your stay! Best regards, Isabelle
My wife and I spent 3 days with Isabelle. We found her very personable which is very important when you spend the amount of time we did .She had a wealth of knowledge of history, art, architecture and culture of the region and she was patient with our relentless questions as well my attempts at broken French. We enjoyed very much the visits to the wineries and here also she was not just someone accompanying us around but someone who could impart her knowledge of the industry .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nick, what a pleasure to meeting you and being your guide in Bordeaux area! I enjoyed preparing your programme, therefore I am very happy to know it was up to your expectations. Take care. A bientôt !
What a fantastic day we had! Isabelle custom fit the tour to what our group wanted to do and within our budget. She is very knowledgeable on St. Emilion and the surrounding area. I would highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susanne, I enjoyed being the guide of you girl trip in Saint-Emilion! You are all exceptionnal as well as your friendship is. Take care and keep enjoying the best of life. Merci!
