Bordeaux Market Tour: A Journey through the French Terroir


During the morning of this food tour, you will discover the ancient market district of Saint Michel. Experience the authentic historical center of Bordeaux as you meander through its cobbled streets, its longstanding monuments and of course, the locals.

After a quick (and scrumptious) stop in a traditional French bakery, we’ll take you to Bordeaux’s oldest and biggest indoor market Les Capucins. Meet with the vendors and hear their stories, taste locally produced foods including cheese, oysters*, duck paté, and many other delicious treats! Explore the diversity of what Bordeaux terroir has to offer with your personalized english speaking guide, so you can chat with the local producers who are amazing ambassadors for the French way of life.

To finish the day we’ll enjoy one of France oldest tradition,  the French aperitif. A local wine will be matching a platter of cured meat or oysters, perfect time to share with your guide and talk about the region.

This is a French lifestyle experience you will not want to miss to get an authentic taste of what the good life means to us!
