Guided Tours Bordeaux
Never tried our small group tours from Bordeaux to understand what happened the last decades, in town and around ?
City of Bordeaux has evolved a lot since it was given the nickname of ‘Sleeping Beauty of the South West’ and that may be why aesthetes, epicureans (and even investors) have shown great interests in its transformation and made their own contributions…!
It is no longer a provincial town, characterized by its calm and tranquility, but a dynamic and modern metropolis, a melting pot of talents, ideas, inspirations, arts and finances, with its proud history and tradition.
In 2007, the city of Bordeaux was granted its UNESCO World Heritage Site status and was voted as the ‘Best European Destination’ in 2015. Today it is prized by travelers from all over the world for the perfect combination of a vibrant city life and poetic countryside renowned for its cuisine, vineyards and breathtaking coast.
During a guided tour that Bordeaux Discoveries offers, we accompany you to discover all the important historic landmark sand architecture as well as more unusual places of interest. Based on my knowledge of urban planning of the city, you will appreciate the connections between the classic side of the city and its modern development, as well as the evolution of the city and its surrounding areas over the past few hundred years. We will also inform you on the recent political, sociological and cultural changes that have taken place in the region in the last few years.
