Stretching from southern France through the Gironde region to Spain, the Garonne River runs through the heart of the city of Bordeaux, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here are a few ways to enjoy the best of Bordeaux on a Garonne River cruise.
Take a Garonne River cruise and admire riverside landmarks such as the Basilica of St. Michael, Louis XV's grand Place de la Bourse, and the grassy Quai Richelieu from the water.
Opt for a lunch tour and sip cocktails as you float downstream, or book a 3-course dinner cruise and savor delicious French cuisine as the UNESCO–listed sites drift past outside.
Combine a scenic river cruise with an on-board wine tasting led by an expert sommelier, and sample some of the wines for which Bordeaux, Saint-Émilion, and the Médoc wine region are famous.
Cruise to the UNESCO–listed Citadel of Blaye, and enjoy sweeping views over the rolling vineyards of the Côtes de Bourg wine country and the Aquitaine countryside.
