Visit Bordeaux by Bike

The course :

Join us in the heart of the historic center of Bordeaux at the charming Place Raymond Colom, the ideal meeting point to start this magnificent bike ride.

On the agenda: Discovering Bordeaux together in a convivial atmosphere, lots of smiles and well-being.

Once equiped, ready for the adventure ahead, we will make our way towards the oldest door of Bordeaux, the Grosse Cloche (also known as the “Big Bell”) dating from the 13th century. Then we shall cross the Saint-Michel district, famous for its local market before quickly reaching the magnificent Pont de Pierre bridge to cross the Garonne river. This trajectory offers us a unique view of the “Port of the Moon” and its majestic facade dating from the 18th century. This will be the perfect moment to share with you the history of Bordeaux over the centuries.

We will stroll along the Parc des Angéliques (“Angelic Park”) and across the Garonne river via the impressive Jacques Chaban-Delmas Bridge to explore some of the city’s most important sites. We will discover the Chartrons district, the historical heart of the wine trade in Bordeaux, which is famous for its wine cellars.

We will resume our stroll along the charming Notre Dame Street. We’ll head for the beautiful Jardin Public (“Public Gardens”) and then the historic center, passing by the Quinconces esplanade and its monument dedicated to the Girondins, the Triangle d’or (“The Golden Triangle”), City Hall and the Saint-André Cathedral. Then we will go through the cobbled streets, pretty plazas (always animated thanks to their cafés!), and finally we will pass in front of the world famous Miroir D’eau (“Water Mirror”) before going to admire the second oldest city gate of Bordeaux and returning to our starting point.

The itinerary may vary according to the weather, possible city events.

What a great experience. Jean-Christophe was a superb tour guide - knowledgeable, interesting and personable. The bike tour was a great way to see the highlights in Bordeaux and hear about its rich history. I would highly recommend this tour.

Not only were the views amazing with so many photo opportunities but Jean - Christophe our guide for the afternoon was fantastic. He speaks very good English and his passionate knowledge of the history of the city was educating and interesting. One of the main attractions of this trip is crossing the river on two different bridges which not only gives the views from the other bank but also to explore best kept secrets that most tourists would miss.

Our guide Jean-C was fantastic - made safety a priority, thorough historical knowledge, good recommendations of places to visit, spoke English and French well and good sense of humour (would even be singing while riding). The only very minor area of improvement may be to pause just a little more for photos however I understand that may mean seeing less. Overall I would rate the experience 5/5 and highly recommend this tour.

Jean Christophe was amazing. The history and stories he shared as we travelled the city made all the difference. He also had a great lunch recommendation. Highly recommended.

Bordeaux Bicycle Bliss Really enjoyable experience. Covered a large amount of ground and went to places we would not have ventured on our own. Darwin area and skatepark and lovely ride through the park. Good value for money. Tour guide was really pleasant and gave enough history in his stops.

Very interesting. Enjoyed it very much. I would recommend it as a fantastic way to get to see the city and learn about its history. We went back and visited some of the places we had seen on the tour as we found some favourite places. The pick up and drop of for the bikes was central and easy to find. Jean Christof, our guide, was exceptional.

A lovely way to see Bordeaux. The booking was managed well and the tour was fun and informative. The weather was very warm and Chris had a bottle of water and a little snack for us to enjoy. I would highly recommend you book with this business direct for your next tour. Bikes were well maintained and comfy.
