Just brilliant, unforgettable tour and a great way to spend an afternoon getting to know Bordeaux. I had so much fun on this tour, it was lovely to go on a relaxed ride around the city and listen to the stories about the history and culture. The guide was really lovely, very attentive, informative and made us all feel well looked after. I thoroughly recommend. The tour does require a fair level of cycling skill - not necessarily fitness, but ability to stop and start, cycle safely in busy areas etc.

Lucie was an outstanding tour guide and ambassador for Bordeaux. She took us all through the old city sharing many great facts and stories along the way. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a great tour of Bordeaux.
