[bc2018bdx] What to do in Bordeaux - The basements of Bordeaux - meeting at the Monument des Girondins, place de Quinconces

The discovery of a hidden Bordeaux that will fascinate lovers of history, unusual and secrets!

From the archaeological crypt of Saint-seurine whose development is unique in France, high place of Christianity and of the oldest Bordeaux necropolis to the disturbing basements of the Monuments to the Girondins built at the dawn of the twentieth century, passing through the Foundations of an ancient Roman tower located 15 m underground, rue de la Vieille-Tour, come and discover the underground stories, as unusual as the mysterious of a little known Bordeaux!

We managed a special visit for us, in english

Date: Friday 20th of april
Time: 2 pm
The visit lasts two hours
Price: the price depends the number of participants, it is €192 for the group, so more than you are, the less you pay (max. 19 people)

Yes, think you are not the only one, who doesn't appear on the list. I also miss d-vineland, trinibell and nursefluff (by bronwina). You all entered the thread before me.

Sorry!

It was late in the evening...

Is there someone else I missed?

And is there someone else who want to do this?

Pfff, thank you chawoso...
Profile Image
Oh dear, I wanted to do this. Looks like I’m too late.

I'm pretty confident that more groups will be opened if enough people show interest. The deadline is in 5~6 weeks!

I'm interested too, Krissa.
Profile Image
I know of another 2 (or maybe even 4) people who would be interested if another group opens up. Bludanzer22 and I would sign up and we have a couple non-BC friends who will be in town at the same time.
Profile Image

OK

We can have another visit but only on saturday. They have visits at 11 am or at 1 pm

We do not yet have the timetable for the speakers on saturday so tell us just who would like to make this visit, and we try to make for the best

During the next 3/4 days I probably won't have Internet (I'm always on the road actually in Italy) so sorry if I do not answer quickly
Profile Image
Please add me to the list. Thank you.
Profile Image

Thank you!

You've managed to squeeze me in!
Profile Image
If you start another group, please add me.
Profile Image
I would like to take part, if possible.
Profile Image
Ixion and Mr. Ixion
Profile Image
Tobb would like to join this if another group is formed.
Profile Image
I see that I am on the list, but bludanzer22 will be with me and is interested as well. I know we are waiting to see about getting a second group going, but it looks like the interest is there.

We are signed up for the Palais tour as well, if that makes a difference as to which group/time we get.

Thanks for planning all of this -- we are getting so excited!!
Profile Image
M. OldVulture and I would like to joint the second group, too when it's set up.
Profile Image
Thanks!
Profile Image
in the second group, depending how it fits in with the programme.
Profile Image
I'd like to sign up for the second tour
ETA: opting out again, sorry (would only like to take part Friday or Sunday)
Profile Image
if you can still squeeze me in. Thanks!
Profile Image
Will there be a second group? And will it be the same time? As I wrote a month ago Tobb is interested in going.
Profile Image
I'd rather opt out if possible, not being interested in having extra-BC activities on Saturday.

Same here. I didn't realise it would be two hours on the Saturday, which is a large chunk of the main convention day - so I'll opt out of the Saturday tour please.

I feel the same, so please delete my name from the list.

I'm about to pay for our excursions and the T-shirts. For this excursion for me it's not clear what to pay.

The list of attendees is longer than 19, people opting out. So... if I pay €192/28*2 for the both of us would that be okay? Or is it still €192/19*2 because the attendees will be divided into two groups?

It is always 192€/19 because the limite of persons is 19 for each visit, that's why we have to make two groups, on two different days, with two guides different, and pay 192€ each visit
So it is 10€ each

Many Thanks

If so, please count us in: poppy17 + HerrNiebel. Thank you :-)
Profile Image
the visit is right after the bookswap game, and I really really want to catch it. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Profile Image
Hopefully there are a few more thumbs up for the second group on Saturday. I'd like to go, even if there will not be a complete group of 19 participants. Just in case I remitted a little more than the € 10 required for the first group.

For the moment there are only 8 personne who confirmed, so it will be 20€ each

Tobb wants to do the tour on Saturday as well. Sorry that I missed sending an answer.
Profile Image
Do you know yet how much it is for the second group? I want to do all my payments at the same time to avoid PayPal fees.

Puh, that was close! Please sign me in.
Profile Image
Thanks!
Profile Image
makes 11 for the time being!
Profile Image

OK

I'll make the update a little bit later, now I go to "Escale de livres ", a small book fair in Bordeaux witch takes place this week-end
Profile Image
Not sure if you got my PM (I always worry that emails discussing money will be auto-deleted as spam), but I sent through the payment for Lytteltonwitch and I for the Thursday excursion, the basements tour, and the Palais Rohan tour, but we're only listed as having paid for Thursday and Palais Rohan. Could you please check if you received the correct amount of money? I don't want to miss out on the basements!
Profile Image
PS. If any of the Saturday people really really want to do the basement tour, but don't want to miss the author talks, I'm ok with swapping with someone. I'd rather do the tour on Friday, but I don't mind missing the author talks if necessary, and I'd hate for someone to miss out on the tour.

I have created a bc label using a photo I took at des Girondins when I was at The Bordeaux Uncon 2 years ago. Also did one of the Mirror Pool.
