Garonne River Cruise Including Bordeaux Wine Tasting

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    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.

    Really nice family trip. Lovely cruise along the river looking at the sites of Bordeaux. We tasted two wines (1 white & 1 red). The tour guide was great speaking in both French and English.

    If you want a superb holiday with great food, a great boat, super friendly crew, great on-board entertainment and on shore excursions then look no further than SCENIC. This has been our second river cruise with them and we can’t wait for our third!

    The guide tried his best to repeat all what he had said in English, but the vineyard owner couldn't speak it so you would lose out on all the information she had to give if you can't speak French. The tour highlights the main areas...More

    We were disappointed in this "river cruise". The commentary was ad-libbed, French and English, but was more engaging in French. The wine was mediocre and I think we would have been better off to book a non-wine tasting tour. The sights along the tour are...More

    I think you'd best contact the cruise companies. Good Luck.

    Contact the cruise company for a definitive answer but I'm guessing they only have one dock booked and it is the one farthest from you. There is a lot of river cruise traffic so at different times they might have the other... More
