The retro Tour Bordeaux History

Retro Tour exists in Bordeaux since 2018 but in reality its history goes back much further... One day, Alexandre, the founder of the company, fell in love with the city and the region: its monuments, its small squares in the Saint-Pierre district, the festive and warm atmosphere, its vineyards and its ocean beaches... He then decided to change his life and come to live in Bordeaux with his family. And this gave him a great idea. From a closed office with his computer, he moved to a sidecar handlebar in the open air, the turn was 180°! Since then, Alexandre and his team transmit their passion for the region to all the visitors who climb into their sidecars. The objective is always the same: to make live an unforgettable experience.
