Know More about this tour

Begin your Bordeaux cruise at Quai Richelieu or Cité 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 d’Aquitaine 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, Médoc, Sauternes and Côtes 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 Côtes de Bourg territory, or a deep and fruity red from Médoc.

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

  • This Trip was Amazing.....Well Organised...The Boat is Modern, Clean and has Great Facilities.....
    Wine were better quality than expected.....Loads of Interesting Info of Bordeaux, Its Buildings, History and More....
    Would Recommend.....

  • Very enjoyable and interesting, gives good sense of this lovely city and environs. The wine tasting was very nice also.

  • Good tour. Exactly as described. A pleasant boat ride along a section of the Garonne/Gironde with tastings of a few very nice reds. I would recommend it.

  • This was extremely disappointing. A small boat, with limited good viewing, along an ordinary river, with not one word spoken in English. We had no idea what was being said about the views or the wines. Not recommended

  • Our voucher showed the tour commentary would be in English. This was not the case, and when we politely asked and showed our voucher that it was to be in in English, we were rather abruptly informed that it was only in French. Consequently, we had no idea what the various points of interest were.

  • Horrible wine tasting on a horrible muddy river. Not worth the time or money
