Hi there, my name is Bertrand, twenty years ago, I arrived to Cadiz and, immediately, felt in love of this amazing part of Andalusia, to me, a piece of paradise. To fall in love with Cadiz means to fall in love with its history, culture, local life and, of course, its amazing wines and gastronomy.
Having worked in the world of antiques a large part of my life and the cooperation over the last decade with some of the most remarkable Bodegas of the Sherry Triangle are the origin of this experience where two of my passions come across: history and sherry.

Where you'll be

The tour will pass through the heart of Cadiz Old Town, beginning at Plaza de San Juan de Dios (San Juan de Dios Square) and ending at the oldest Sherry Tavern of Cadiz right in the historical center. We'll see a few of Cadiz's important monuments and charming squares, but the goal is to show you the relevance of Sherry in the city and some hidden corners you may not have found on your own.

We spent a great evening with Bertrand walking round Cadiz. He pointed out so many things which we definitely would have missed or not recognised if we had been on our own.His knowledge of the history of Cadiz is superb and full of anecdotes and he answered our questions with great patience and humour. We also enjoyed the sherry experience at the end and more conversation. We feel we have a friend in Cadiz now! Until the next time!

Our group had a great time. Bertrand is a walking Wiki of Cadiz and points out the historical details that we would never have noticed. This tour really enriched our time there.

Very informative walking tour of Cadiz with plenty of history included. Bertrand has vast knowledge of the area and the architecture. And the background on sherry making and the tasting were excellent. A great host and a great experience.

Bertrand took us on an interesting walk around Cadiz and to a sherry tavern to taste different typrs of sherry. It worked well, we were able to talk about the history shared between Britain and Spain bringing togther our different perspectives on the past. He explained the sherry culture very well and we were able to taste 'en rama' sherries from the cask which is quite a different experience from getting a bottle from the supermarket in the UK. All in all - excellent.
