    What to Expect
    Begin your 4-hour gourmet exploration of Bordeaux by meeting your guide near Place des Quinconces in the city center. This food tour ambles through Bordeaux and a very leisurely pace, giving you time to marvel at the historic beauty of the city's architecture. Listen as your professional foodie guide offers insight into Bordeaux's culinary history as you walk.
    Visit a favorite local bakery, with inviting scents of freshly-baked baguettes surrounding you as you meet the baker and sample some handmade treats.
    Next, visit one of the most famous chocolatiers in the city to meet the owner. Generations have kept the shop's recipes secret, and though you may never be able to duplicate what you taste you'll certainly enjoy the samples. Unique flavor components include green tea, olive and ginger.
    Follow your guide to a cheese shop to learn about the cheese-making traditions that make French cheese so world-famous while you sample cheeses from different parts of the country, including Roquefort, Brie and Comté.
    After all this sampling, finish your tour with a visit to a typical apartment for a buffet-style lunch. Take your pick from the generous array of food offerings, including many of the items you sampled earlier in the tour, accompanied by some excellent Bordeaux wine. Conclude your lunch with a traditional Bordeaux cake called a canelé. The tour ends after lunch.

    We were in Bordeaux for only three full days before continuing onto other destinations so we wanted to be "situated" early on about this city's history, everyday life, eating venues, landmarks, etc. Our guide was Guillaume and he informed us that we were the only...More

    The tour guide was informative and very pleasant. The tour started on time. Some history of Bordeaux before 3 food stops: bakery, chocolate and cheese. What more could a person want! The maximum group size is 8 people.

    If you are on a smaller ship then you will just have a walk of at most ten minutes to the tour start point in the Rue d’Enghien.

    Hi, I don't run this tour, I just went on it so you would have to check with the tour company. When I did it we started in the morning and it went past lunch time. Might have been 8:30/9am- 1pm or so.
