What people are saying about Monument aux Girondins

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.

Service as advertised. Very pleasant guide, available and adapting to the group. He was able to answer all of our questions. The treats tasted were delicious. Quality visit to recommend.

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