        Hairy Bikers meets Bordeaux main sights
        Our driver was fun and engaging and despite the weather which was cold and damp we still had fun. Sitting on the back of the motorbike was a bit scary but still fun

        Amazing experience
        Alex and Lucio were incredible tour guides. Our family (18 year old son) were so impressed with their intimate knowledge of the area. The 3 hour tour was a perfect mix of history and the city as it is now. We speak English but communication with Alex was flawless. There are dozens of areas in Bourdeaux that we would never have known exist without their local knowledge. Do not cheat yourself by missing this adventure. Mike Salt Lake City, Utah USA

        A fun way to tour Bordeaux
        Alex and his staff were fantastic! We enjoyed cruising around town (getting many smiles from the locals), learning about the history of Bordeaux and visiting the different neighborhoods. We were able to go down tiny streets where cars cannot drive and across town on a scenic and exhilarating ride. We booked the tour in advance - it sells out - and it was our first event when we arrived in Bordeaux. It was the perfect introduction and helped us when we returned to the various neighborhoods on foot later in the week.

        Not to be missed!!!
        Exceptional, outstanding and Magnifique! Lucio was our guide and showed knowledge, humor and a great personality that made our trip so wonderful! My wife was a little reluctant to take this tour but, at the end, was VERY HAPPY we did. The sights, energy and variety of things we saw was terrific and, as mentioned, Luc was a big part of our delightful morning in Bourdeaux. Well worth the time and money!!!

        Fun way to experience Saint-Emilion
        Riding on the sidecar or pillion was really fun! Our pilot Lucio was amazing and toured us around Saint-Emilion while explaining different things about the town. Definitely a lot better than ebike, I would say. Had lots of enjoyable moments and good photos!

        Fun in Bordeaux on a motorycle
        Recently did the St. Emilion tour in a side-car with Retro Tour in Bordeaux. We were two couples traveling via a cruise ship. Our pilots Alex and Emmanuel picked us up promptly at the ship. Admittedly, as we are older couples, we had some reluctance with one of us riding on the back of the motorcyle. But I have to say, all took turns on the back and we had a blast! Our pilots were wonderful always checking to make sure we were safe and comfortable. They are great, experienced drivers. We toured St. Emilion, visited a winery for a tasting and toured on the bikes through a vineyard. I highly recommend this tour. All of us agree that this was one of the highlights of our trip. Try it - you will not be disappointed!

        Fun side-car experience.
        This was such a fun tour. Our tour guide went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. We learnt some really interesting stories about the places we visited. Highly recommend.

        Don’t hesitate, book this tour!
        Wonderful experience with Alex. Alex was charming, fun, knowledgeable of the area, and made the whole afternoon very special. We were able to customize our pick up and drop off location and he was very easy to coordinate with. One of the best parts of our trip to France!

        Fun in Saint Emilion!
        What an afternoon! Had a very special 4.5hrs with Alex and Emmanuel who were super friendly, informative and spoke perfect English. The bikes and sidecars look great and were a lot of fun, whilst the trip out to Saint Emilion afforded us wonderful views of the countryside and incorporated a wine tour at Couvent des where we got to sample some delightful wines.

        The Kindest Tour Guide Ever!
        Our Tour guide (Arno/NoNo? Sorry I don’t know how to spell it🥲) was the sweetest, funniest and most caring tour guide ever. We had the best experience ever! He was so attentive and informative. My elderly mother really enjoyed the trip and loved him also, she said it was one of the best things she has done abroad. Well worth the money! Our tour kind was so kind and aware of the weather, he took us to cooler spots and even got us some water at his expense. Such a lovely gentleman and an absolute credit to the company he works for. He also has great taste in video games so he earns extra stars for that lol. Thankyou for a wonderful day!!

        Amazing experience
        What an amazing experience. Great tour with very knowledgable guides Arnaud and Arthur. We had an hour tour and we’re given the option of historic or fast and historic so my son chose the later. Saw lots of the city and given lots of recommendations of other places to go/ eat and the best Bordeaux cakes to get! Would definitely do it again

        A great way to see the best Bordeaux has to offer
        We had just 24 hours in Bordeaux as part of our summer holiday, so wanted an opportunity to see the best the city had to offer in the short time we had. I came across these brilliant motorcycle sidecar tours while researching and was sold. We had a brilliant 90 minutes with our rider and guide Arnault, a true Gentleman Sider, very knowledgeable, a lot of fun and a safe and courteous rider. We're now completely sold on Bordeaux and will be back for more next year (and we'll be booking a longer tour to get out to the vineyards)

      I loved this tour, Alex is a very nice guy and was great to spend the day with him, he knows the best places to taste very good wine and the best roads to see the amazing landscape in Saint-Emilion.
      I strongly recommend this tour.
