The guide was very helpful and nice person. His knowledge goes far behind ordinary facts and things, and he really enjoys guiding. Pastries were interesting, as well as pastry shops (preferred one is with hazelnut products). Definetely recomended tour.

Said was an amazing tour guide . He made it personable and showed the hidden gems he loves which made the tour interesting. He had a wonderful knowledge and excitement about the area of Bordeaux.

Informative, fun, and excellent tastings. We wouldn't have found or selected the treats, if we had just wandered around ourselves. It was fabulous to discover Bordeaux and some local products.

Wonderful guide, lots of interesting commentary, visited great locations and all done at a sensible pace. Excellent in every way.

Saiid was fantastic with his tour. His love for Bordeaux was contagious. I highly recommend this tour.
