The tour was very easy to follow and gave lots of information about each site. I found some of the riddles were hard to solve without a clue because I didn’t understand what it was asking me to do - I feel like this would be easier though on a subsequent self-guided tour. It was very convenient to do in your own time and I actually split it across the sessions as by the time I arrived, it was getting too late to do it all that evening. I would have liked to know where all the locations were before starting so that I oils have started part way around as I ended up walk past a few places to get from my accommodation to the start.

A great way to discover old Bordeaux in a fun way. We did it with our 2 13 year olds with no worries. Every corner was a feast for the eyes, the streets are clean, picturesque and full of history. To do without moderation, I would advise having lunch there at noon to take your time the rest of the afternoon. Good discovery to all

This was such an awesome way to discover and experience a city and will definitely do something similar again.. The information shared in each attraction was really great and I loved that we were able to so this at our own pace.. Just one thing we had a problem with was at some stops we the image did not want to download so we were not able to complete the riddles and had to skip it. Other than this we had no issues.. Thanks for an awesome tour!!
