About the Tour

Bordeaux is a wonderful city built with golden stone. It has over two thousand years of history and almost three hundred historical monuments. It is also full of amazing stories. Follow me through its streets, into its 18th century squares, and I’ll share them with you.

Among other things, this tour includes:

• The secrets of the statues of the Grand Théâtre
• The dark history of the slave trade in Bordeaux
• Bordeaux and Girondes connection to the French Revolution
• And so much more!

I’m an official tour guide and I’ve lived in Bordeaux for over a decade. I hope you enjoy discovering or rediscovering the city with me, and that it leaves you with a new perspective.
