Embark on your Garonne River cruise near Bordeaux city center, and be welcomed aboard with a cocktail. One of Frances longest rivers, the Garonne snakes through the city and the surrounding wine region, and is the perfect vantage point to capture the beauty of Bordeaux. Sit back, relax and enjoy views of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed buildings and landmarks that line the historic waterfront.
Stately Place de la Bourse, Quai Richelieu and the imposing Gothic spire of Basilica of St Michael all take on a beautiful glow at night, illuminated by the orange hue of the floodlights. Camera in hand, glide under the Pont du Pierre bridge, pass the Port of Bassens and reach Chteau Grattequina, the turning-point on your cruise.
Enjoy a 3-course dinner as the sparkling city sights drift slowly past. Menus vary according to the season, but all dishes are freshly prepared on board and make full use of the local produce available (see sample menu below. Drinks are available to purchase at your own expense).
After three hours of cruising the river, arrive back at the dock.
