Beautiful architecture, fascinating history and one of the world's most famous wine regions: discover the best of Bordeaux on this guided walking tour. What's more, it's FREE!

Free Walking Tour of Bordeaux Itinerary

This free walking tour of Bordeaux starts in Place des Quinconces, one of Europe's largest city squares and home to a magnificent fountain, a monument to the Girondists who fell victim to the Reign of Terror during the French Revolution.

Throughout the walking tour, your English-speaking tour guide will tell you all about the history of this city, one of the most important in France and the world capital of the viticulture industry, with wine having been produced here since the 8th century.

Bordeaux's historic centre has been recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its incredible architectural beauty. Walking through the streets of the old town, you'll discover iconic buildings such as the Bordeaux Cathedral, first consecrated in 1096; the Grand Théâtre, with its impressive Neo-Classical façade; Porte Cailhau, the gateway that remains from the ancient fortified city walls; and the Utopia cinema, which is housed in a former church. 

Learn the legends and history surrounding the city, get to know local customs and discover the importance of the wine industry for Bordeaux and the area surrounding the Garonne river.

Your walking tour of Bordeaux will finish in Place de la Bourse. This large square is a perfect example of French 18th century classical architecture and was constructed to reflect the city's wealth.
