Join me as we eat our way across Bordeaux's best bakeries, all of which are recipients of French culinary awards.
Each bakery is in a different, vibrant neighbourhood of Bordeaux and along the way we'll share with you its history and our own personal experiences of the neighbourhood. Come hungry!
Salut! I'm Nikesh and I spent 100 euros on pastries in my first 2 weeks in this city.
I've written for food blogs in Australia for 3 years and my area of expertise is not high-end dining but rather street food and bakeries. I have lived in Bordeaux for more than 4 years now and believe me when I say I have scouted this city far and wide for its best boulangeries (bakeries).
After taking a few of my friends around the city, they suggested that I start a pastry tour where I combine my interest for this city's rich history and my love for pastries. Et voila!
“If you're in Bordeaux, you can't miss this tour! Nikesh is a wonderful guide, who is passionate about Bordeaux, and willing to share his secret spots. Definitely come hungry!”
Just to the left of the entrance of the Saint Michel Basilica. You will see the green doors of the Basilica and I will be waiting in the area to the left
We'll start in the historical Saint Michel district, make our way through the bustling, hipster street Rue Pas Sant Georges and then towards Hotel de Ville which is the center of town. After that, we will continue to France's best boulangerie of 2018 and finish in the quaint Chartrons village.
A bag for any pastries you would like to take home, a waterbottle and make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes.
Guests will be refunded entirely if the cancellation is made within 48 hours of reserving and/or 48 hours before the tour.
Contact me and I'll see what we can do.
