Full description

Explore the heart of Old Bordeaux on a private guided walking tour. Pass by popular attractions like the Bordeaux Cathedral, Pey Berland Tower, and more while learning about the history, culture, and lifestyle in a fun and entertaining way.

Meet your guide in what is considered the city's main square, Place Pey-Berland. Jump right in as you marvel at the two imposing structures that flank this square, the Hôtel de Ville and the Cathédrale Saint-André, often simply referred to as Bordeaux Cathedral.

Admire the intricate details of the cathedral's gothic structure and see the Tour Pey-Berland, a 15th-century bell tower that was built to provide the cathedral with a large bell without threatening the original building.

Follow your guide as you walk through the cobbled streets of Bordeaux's historic center, stopping off at Place Saint-Projet to discover the history of the square and the famous Rue Sainte-Catherine.

Your tour continues to the intriguing Place Camille Jullian, where you'll learn of a hidden secret that lies here. Next, it's on to the must-see Porte Cailhau, a structure that once served as the main gate to the city and boasts a rich history dating back to the Middle Ages.

Continue towards Place de la Bourse, passing through the famous Saint-Pierre district where the city’s first port once was. Learn about Bordeaux's secret slave trade and take a picture at the world's largest reflecting pool, the Miroir D’Eau.

Finally, admire the Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux before completing your tour with a visit to the Monuments aux Girondins.
