Description

I am from Bordeaux: born into this world of wine and liqueurbrought up at Arcachon Bay and its sea spray, I learnt to walk inthe vineyards of Entre-Deux-Mers.
In 1989 I founded a wine museum in Bordeaux but in 2014 I decided to share all my knowledge by becoming an independent guide: the museum walls were too restrictive for me.
I adore my region and every day I learn to discover more about it, and to make this known to others. I am a registered Bordeaux guide and propose a theme which is close to my heart: Rebellious Bordeaux facing the most powerful royal power.

17th century Bordeaux


For this discovery tour, I have chosen to take you back in time and return to the 17th century. Come and discover Bordeaux and its incredible merchant activity!
I want to show you “my city” by giving you an intimate, personal and historical perspective on it.

With visits to symbolic sites


We meet in the heart of the Saint Eloi quarter; we go along the ancient walls and stop off at the emblem of the city of Bordeaux. We follow part of the pilgrimage route leading to Santiago in Spain and look at the remaining traces of the city’s former port. We will reach the water by going under Porte Cailhau, following in the footsteps of the Princess of Condé. Alongside the river, I will tell you about the city’s maritime history and we will come to the old Saint Michel neighbourhood.
As an amateur photographer, I enjoy great viewing points and my tours will enable you to take home some beautiful photographic souvenirs.

When you mention Bordeaux, you think of Oenology!


We finish the tour with an introduction to wine tasting. This gourmet moment offers us the opportunity to discuss and share enjoyable moments .Come aboard and you won’t be disappointed on this trip!

Grace aux connaissances pointues de Caroline sur sa ville, sur l'art en général, son dynamisme et sa bienveillance, nous avons passé une excellente après-midi en famille et en sa companie à Bordeaux. Je recommande donc vivement cette sortie si vous avez envie de découvrir Bordeaux hors des circuits standards. Merci Caroline :-)
