About Me

Hello and Welcome!

My name is Tess and I’m a Tour-leader in Bordeaux. I have been living here since 2004 as I came to school in Bordeaux. So I know the region pretty well.

The South-West of France is rich in history, gastronomy and culture. Every time I visit somewhere, I like to share my experience with others and therefore with you. These last year’s Bordeaux has become the place to be and has changed so much since I first came here. Yes there’s its wine but that’s not all! I realised many tourists didn’t get the chance to see Bordeaux’s hidden secrets.

I remember a couple of years back, I was sat at Place de la Bourse when two American tourists came up to me. They politely asked if I spoke English. They found the right person! They were wondering why so many people were out on the streets. I explained that because it was the wine festival (once every two years) every night there was a firework display. They were so pleased to know, as they would have just gone back to the hotel. That’s when I realised I wanted to work with tourists! So I did everything I could to become a tour-leader and help people discover my beautiful adopted city and its surroundings.

Please contact me if you have any questions or need information on visiting Bordeaux, I’m happy to help!
