Experience Bordeaux like a real local!
Your guide will take you in the heart of the historical town, which is classified on the UNESCO list. Riding a bike is the ideal way to explore the city; during this 10 kilometer's ride you will go on both sides of the Garonne River and enjoy stunning views of the 18th century quays.
2 pm: meet and great at the Bordovino apartment in the very center of Bordeaux. Let’s get prepared and en route on your bike!
2.15 pm: Let’s go to the Chartrons quays, where the wine barrels were stocked and ready to be shipped on the docks. Then you will cross the contemporary bridge "Chaban Delmas" to get on the other side of the Garonne river. There get your camera ready! You will be in front of an incredible view on the Place de la Bourse, on the Pont de Pierre and on the majestic facades of the 18th century building beautifully renovated.
3 pm: Cross the Garonne river again by the Pont de Pierre and get into the historical Bordeaux: Grosse Cloche, place du Palais, porte Cailhau, place du Parlement, Grand Théâtre, Place Pey Berland… These monuments are all 5 stars in your city guide! Amble through the charming small streets and through the bigger avenues which make the reputation of Bordeaux as being one of the most attractive cities in France. During your trip your guide invites you to participate to a quiz to test your sense of observation. Open your eyes: you can win a bottle of wine!
