Enjoy a taste of Bordeaux with a gourmet safari stopping off at street markets to sample local cheese, rich chocolate and fresh oysters, via city landmarks including Place de la Bourse and the Bordeaux Opera.
Celebrated for its hearty wines produced in sun-drenched vineyards just outside the city, on-trend Bordeaux has a top food scene to pair with its full-bodied reds and elegant whites. On this half-day experience, immerse yourself in local life as you explore historical sites and learn the stories behind some of the region’s best-known foods.
Meet with your guide and wander through the city streets to take in the star attractions: Place de la Bourse, Bordeaux Opera and the remarkable Miroir d’Eau – the world’s largest reflection pool. Explore lesser-visited corners of the city and visit street stalls that specialise in French delicacies. During your time at the street markets, there will be the chance for you to sample tasty traditional foods such as cheese, chocolate, oysters and the caramelised custard-filled pastry, cannelés, all washed down with a glass (or two) of local wine.
Additional notes about the tour
There is the option to add on a cooking class with a talented chef, where you will prepare (and dine on) a traditional lunch.
