    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 had a good time on this food tour, but it is a bit different than others we have enjoyed in other cities/countries. It began a bit slow as we walked around the area of Bordeaux as trucks were making deliveries and the shops began to open. As the tour began at 9 AM, it was

    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 two visitors on

    This tour gave us a great overview of the City and our guide was informative on the history of Bordeaux, pointing out a few other good eating spots along the way. It was a nice touch to choose our own dessert and cheese for lunch. We left feeling a little flat as we felt our

    Response from Bordovino, Propriétaire at Bordeaux Gourmet Food Walking Tour with Lunch
    Responded 28 Aug. 2019
    Dear Suezie, our tour is an historical (yes we give some historical insights about Bordeaux) and food tour which is meant to be an immersion in the city of Bordeaux. The tour starts at 9am and the first stop at a food producer is at 10am which is quite early to starts the food tastings! The walk is followed by a lunch so there is a lot to eat during the tour. We usually have very positive reviews on this tour and I am sorry that you were not 100% satisfied.
