Bordeaux was recently named “Europe’s Best Destination”. Its graceful streets and UNESCO listed buildings are lined with amazing restaurants, wine bars and authentic cafés. While here you’ll soak up the ambiance as you tour the city, explore its culture and enjoy gastronomic meals and even go to the Opera House to enjoy a play. “Most tours” says Doni ” don’t include all meals plus wine, but mine do. As a food writer and author of Paris Cocktails, I have extremely demanding tastes”…

Its hilly cobbled streets, captivating old buildings and delicious wine bars and restaurants are like a real life fairy tale. But this is no ordinary tour so you’ll also join your host at her home on the river and have a delectable meal cooked by a private chef as you savour the sunset over those famous vineyards.

There are way too many tour companies that take the easy route and put people in standard name-brand hotels. Girls’ Guide like to veer off the well-worn tourist path because we don’t believe in doing anything less than extra-ordinary”.
