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) visit 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 French terroir has to offer with your personalized bi-lingual 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 teach you one of France’s favorite summer pastimes, la pétanque, otherwise known as boules. Enjoy this fun game at a local bar where a platter of more local specialties will be served at the appropriate hour for a French aperitif. 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!
