Meet your guide in Bordeaux city center to get a quick 10-minute introduction on using your Segway. Get outfitted with a helmet and climb aboard for a test run of this unique means of transport – 2-wheeled, battery-powered and self-balancing, it's like nothing you've ridden before. Lean in the direction you'd like to go, and the Segway takes you there. Once everyone is comfortable on their machines, the 1-hour tour of Bordeaux begins.
Listen as your guide provides historical context for the sights of Bordeaux, which is on UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites. Head for the Garonne River and ride along the ancient waterfront, lined with buildings and monuments that mark the passage of time in the city.
Ride to Place des Quinconces, one of Europe's largest public squares, and then to Place de la Comédie. Here, the imposing Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux is the highlight, surrounded by places to shop and dine and simply relax.
Follow your guide along the main shopping street in Bordeaux, Rue Sainte-Catherine, and then to the Bordeaux Cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-André de Bordeaux). It's here where the wedding between Eleanor of Aquitaine and the future King Louis VII took place in 1137. Take a break from riding the Segway to hear more about this significant place and snap some photographs.
The tour concludes back at the starting point after one hour.
