A new way to discover the world
Brigitte & Olivier, local founders of Memosine
Bringing digital into tourism
« We discovered the concept on a trip to San Francisco, California: visiting a city in a 2-seat vehicle, while guided by a GPS-guide with multimedia commentary.
We created Memosine in March 2016, so that this experience could come true not only in the inner Bordeaux – ranked as the “most attractive city in the world” by the 2017 “Best in Travel” from Lonely Planet – but also across the vineyards.
We are happy today to bring you this unique experience, intimate as a lovers’ stroll or convivial as a group of family or friends. »
Combining Tourism & Technology
Right from the beginning, our aim has been to combine high-tech and the unique experience of sightseeing tours in our beautiful region.
Embedded multimedia tour guides
Today our flotilla includes two different types of vehicles integrating this solution, electric vehicles for the city, cabriolets for the vineyards. The bespoke tablet-based multimedia guide offers geolocated commentary on all the points of interest you come across so that you don’t miss anything. Quality content is available, including small anecdotes and historical information that let you in on Bordeaux and its vineyards’ secrets. With GPS navigation and route memory, you will never be lost. You have the option to go off the beaten track in total safety and the freedom to make detours as and when you please.
Several moving vehicles can be connected so you know where the others are and can even communicate with them via chat.
Truly unique and cute vehicles
The electric Memosine is Italian and is named Biro. Dedicated to Bordeaux tours, it is a lot of fun to drive with its automatic variator and has great 360° visibility with its ventilated glass roof. It is very open on the city for a relaxing visit and you won’t even notice the silent electric motor. This two-seater car is maneuverable and easy to park, thereby guaranteeing you easy photo stops at any time.
The French Cabriolet Memosine is a darling little car to cruise around in with the wind in your hair. It is truly adorable. With its boot, ready to store your purchases, this two-seater is perfect to visit châteaux and see the landscape. Its hood protects you from the summer sun but there is nothing to stop you from folding it back for a truly open-air drive
