About Bordeaux tours
Jane from London : “C’est une balade exceptionnelle [Circuit classique]. Virginie est vivante, curieuse et une Bordelaise donc elle peut faire un bon tour. C’est super bien. I really enjoyed this tour of Bordeaux. A great introduction to a wonderful city. Learnt a lot and was shown good places to hang out. Good history etc. Virginie grew up here and, although she has worked all over the world, she knows the city inside out. Recommended.”
Julie and Joe from New-Jersey : “Virginie was absolutely lovely and a delight to spend an afternoon with. Her knowledge of Bordeaux is exceptional, and if you want to speak the language while learning about the town, this is the tour to take. It follows an alternate route through the city's history and deviates from what you will read in a classic tour book of Bordeaux; the combination of this tour [Découverte de la Bastide] and your other, more traditional, exploration will have you come away with a thorough understanding of this ancient French town.”
David from San Diego : “I thoroughly enjoyed my French lesson with Virginie. We had a combination of french lesson and historical tour of Bordeaux. Virginie tailors the lesson according to your level of french, and as a native of Bordeaux, she is very knowledgeable of all of the points of interest in the Centre Ville where we spent the day. Very friendly and approachable, I found it easy to "break the ice" and begin to speak french with no hesitation. I highly recommend this experience if speaking French is one of your reasons for visiting France. “
Jane and her son Tom from Angleterre : “Virginie pitched conversation & information at the right level to stretch our language ability without it being a struggle.”
About day trip to Entre-Deux-Mers
Cristina from Mexico : “Magnifique expérience, Virginie est particulièrement professeur et à des activités pour essayer ton compréhension écrite. C’était une belle balade [La boucle de La Sauve] pour profiter la nature ! A tester et adopter sans hésitation !”
Sonja from Switzerland : “Der Ausflug mit Virginie [La boucle de La Sauve] ist sehr zu empfehlen. Sie hat immer ein sehr schönes und verständliches Französisch gesprochen, so dass ich richtig motiviert war, mich mit ihr zu unterhalten, während wir durch die schöne Landschaft spazierten. Der Ausflug war sehr interessant und Virginie passte sich meinen Bedürfnissen an (Essenspause). Ich habe viel über die lokale Geschichte erfahren und dabei auf eine entspannte Art mein Französisch anwenden und verbessern können. Gerne wieder mit einer Weindegustation.”

"I have worked as a French as a Foreign Language teacher since 2003 in Hungary, Turkey and China. I have graduated from the Université de Bordeaux-Montaigne and Université d’Artois.
I grew up in Bordeaux and have witnessed the city evolve over the years. In 2015, I decided to move back with the idea of introducing « my Grand Sud-Ouest » to French language learners, particularly Bordeaux’s surroundings."
"I am originally from the Provence countryside and have graduated from Avignon University. I have taught French as a Foreign Language in Bulgaria, Turkey and Finland and am currently working in Casablanca, Morocco.
I am excited to introduce you to my beloved Haut-Languedoc Regional Nature Reserve thanks to the immersion program Virginie and I designed together !"
