The best Free Walking Tours in Bordeaux – 2022

Bonjour & Welcome,

Here is a short Blog about the Best Free Walking Tour in Bordeaux and the free tour concept.

You might have travelled to different parts of the world, and you have realised that there is a group of people walking, enjoying, laughing and at the same time discovering the history of the city.

If you have seen this group, then I am sure it is a “Free Tour”. These groups are guided by young local people, who are historic geeks or either they want to show their love for their city, that is the reason they chose to do it on TIPS BASED.

Free Walking Tours Bordeaux was the first company to create Free city tours of Bordeaux.  We started with Free tours in 2016 with one single goal: to show our beautiful city Bordeaux to you. 

When we started our first tours, it was just a few monuments & some anecdotes, but soon we realised that the clients wanted to know more and their curiosity gave us motivation.

Thanks to them, we expanded our tour and created a proper 2 hours tour with 12 iconic monuments of Bordeaux.

Our Free Walking Tour of Bordeaux is the best way to discover the historic city center of Bordeaux.


The tour is not too long or too short, it’s perfect!

As well the tour is structured strategically to see the complete historical city center of Bordeaux, to learn about its gastronomy, discover its stories & to enjoy a walk in the streets of Bordeaux.

We were able to serve + 45,000 clients with more than + 5,000 excellent comments.

Our free walking tour of Bordeaux starts right in the heart of the city center: Quinconces Square. You will see a tall column with an angel statue on the top. This monument is called “Monument aux Girondins”. 

This is where we stand to welcome you, our clients & if you cannot find us, then look for a turquoise Eco-umbrella: you can identify our guides with a turquoise umbrella in their hand.

After a quick introduction of the tour, company and the guide, you will learn everything about the monument of Girondins. We will continue to discover some hidden gems, small & big secrets, the best gastronomy… in short: the Best of Bordeaux. 

Our guides are storytellers. They will make you part of the tour, ask you questions, share anecdotes & give you their recommendations on where to drink & eat in Bordeaux.

You will discover the story of Bordeaux of the past, the present and future in a 2 hour walk., Be careful you might fall in love with the city!
