What You Can Expect

Garonne River Cruise Including Bordeaux Wine Tasting

Enjoy a cruise along the Garonne River and taste local Bordeaux wines

Your wine-tasting and sightseeing cruise starts in Bordeaux at either Quai Richelieu or Cité du Vin. Climb aboard the boat and settle in for a relaxing journey along the Garonne River.
See the sights of Bordeaux's historic center from the water as you drift along, including the Place de la Bourse, and glide underneath bridges such as the modern Jacques Chalban-Delmas and the impressive Pont d'Aquitaine. Watch for historic signs of Bordeaux's changes from the ancient Roman era through today.
This UNESCO-listed city's monuments and architectural landmarks slowly give way to the countryside of the Aquitaine region. These vineyard-covered hills include some incredibly famous wine regions, such as Médoc, Sauternes, Côtes de Bourg and St-Emilion.
As you're looking out at such prominent vineyards, sample some of the local wines during a sommelier-led tasting session. The Bordeaux region produces a wide variety of wines, from the rich reds of the  Médoc to the crisp whites of the Côtes de Bourg.

At the conclusion of a 1.5-hour cruise, return to central Bordeaux where your tour ends.

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.

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2015

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.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this August 2015

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

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