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!

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.

 

bc2018bdx 10 mos ago
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...

 

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.

 

+ Mr. coco

 

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.

 

same with me, please.

 

Krissa33 10 mos ago
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

 

Please add me to the list. Thank you.

 

wingrahar109wing 10 mos ago
Thank you!
You've managed to squeeze me in!

 

If you start another group, please add me.

 

I would like to take part, if possible.

 

Ixion and Mr. Ixion

 

Tobb would like to join this if another group is formed.

 

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!!

 

M. OldVulture and I would like to joint the second group, too when it's set up.

 

Thanks!

 

in the second group, depending how it fits in with the programme.

 

I'd like to sign up for the second tour
ETA: opting out again, sorry (would only like to take part Friday or Sunday)

 

if you can still squeeze me in. Thanks!

 

Will there be a second group? And will it be the same time? As I wrote a month ago Tobb is interested in going.

 

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

I'm ok for Saturday too.

 

Many Thanks

 

If so, please count us in: poppy17 + HerrNiebel. Thank you :-)

 

the visit is right after the bookswap game, and I really really want to catch it. Sorry for the inconvenience.

 

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.

 

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.

Thanks!

 

makes 11 for the time being!

 

Krissa33 7 mos ago
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

 

We will be there on Saturday, too!

 

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!

 

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.

No, at the Monument des Girondins, place de Quinconces

 

Oh good, easy to find!

No, at the Monument des Girondins, place de Quinconces


We accidentally found it today :-)

 

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.
