    • Marie's bike - Guided tours - Sud-Gironde / Bègles
      (Bordeaux metropolis)
      All year round

      Guide lecturer and Girondine by nature, my heart is divided between the South-Gironde and the Garonne and Bègles canal in the Bordeaux metropolis, in the heart of this Gironde, a plural land that I like to introduce to the curious, passing tourists or local. By bike or on foot so many paths are possible to discover it! And what could be nicer than a bike ride in SLOW mode to enjoy the landscapes?

      History, Culture, Architecture, Heritage make up the proposed guided tours:

      NATURE AND HERITAGE

      Destination South-Gironde, the Canal de Garonne and its surrounding villages: Bassanne, Pondaurat, Barie… 8 km from Langon, Castets-en-Dorthe is the starting point for toursHistory and river heritage.

      DID YOU KNOW?
      Caught in Newfoundland in Canada, the fish were unloaded on the quays of Bordeaux, a large cod fishing port in the 19th century, then transported to Bègles, the "city of cod drier". The guided tours are illustrated with many engravings that will allow you to immerse yourself in the past of the city). Come and discover this little-known history and you will understand why in Bègles we celebrate "the Cod Festival"!
      The visit can be completed with a "special cod" lunch.
