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.

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.

The application works well and allows you to discover the city in a fun way. It's great with teenagers!
