Know More about this tour

Begin your Bordeaux cruise at Quai Richelieu or Cit du Vin and set off along the ancient Garonne River. Admire views of Bordeaux's
UNESCO World Heritage-listed cityscape as you cruise past historic landmarks and architectural treasures. Bordeaux has been evolving since Roman times, and the sense of history is palpable.

View stately Place de la bourse and pass under the modern Jacques Chalban-Delmas Bridge and the imposing Pont dAquitaine bridge. With Bordeaux's waterfront sights drifting slowly past, listen as your guide explains the remarkable history, architecture and heritage of this fine city, and feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Watch ornate city buildings give way to the open farmland and nature reserves of the Aquitaine region. Now you're in the heart of Bordeaux wine country, home to famous wine-producing areas including St-Emilion, Mdoc, Sauternes and Ctes de Bourg.

With the rolling Aquitaine countryside surrounding you, enjoy a wine-tasting session led by a sommelier. Sample a variety of wines to get an idea of the range and quality of Bordeaux viticulture; perhaps try a refreshing white from the Ctes de Bourg territory, or a deep and fruity red from Mdoc.

Arrive back in central Bordeaux to conclude your 1.5-hour cruise.
