Eclectic and informative tour of the historic center that was both informative and entertaining. Our guide - what was her name?! - mixed in French commentary with the English that felt like a bonus French lesson. Also a plus that we didn't spend too much time in churches but moved through streets both narrow and wide, gaining an appreciation for this city. Well done! Only comment was the Bluetooth system that would kick in and out during the tour.

The guide was very good. The information and insight into Bordeaux was brilliant. The tour was both in French and English. I think however it would work better if the guide talk one language. Highlig recommended.

The guide Luc was an excellent guide, knowledgeable and gave us a broad and interesting tour around Bordeaux. The car was also especially unique. Highly recommend as entertaining and interesting experience.

A good moment of relaxation. What is enjoyable is above all doing the activity at our own pace, without constraints. Good culture/play balance. Very good value for money.

Fantastic way to explore a city at your own leisure and pace, would definitely recommend
