I didn’t expect the Albi cathedral go be so amazing, but it was. And the view of the town from behind the Toulouse Lautrec museum was gorgeous. Cordes-du-ciel was truly a charming town with lots of beverage, ice cream, and shade stops for my 11 year old. The timing at each spot was just about perfect. We loved our day tour!

It was fun. We got to see a different side of Bordeaux. Although it was exhausting, we definitely recommend it for the adventurous and the young at heart. Edwin was very friendly and communicated very well. The tour was well organized and flexible.

Fantastic half day activity visiting the beautiful Bordeaux countryside just at the cities doorstep and learning about the production of wine. Edwin was a great guide and provided lots of interesting facts along the way about the area. We loved it!

Our tour guide Melissa was lovely. The 5 stops were carefully chosen. She went above and beyond by following up with us for things we wanted to do after the tour.

Great food tour with a small group. Plenty of different food types in a range of venues and an enjoyable afternoon thank you!
