Make your way to the Bacalan neighborhood of Bordeaux where this tour begins, and pick up your 2-person electric vehicle with panoramic viewing windows. Use a multimedia tablet to discover some of Bordeaux’s most iconic monuments: see the Grand Théâtre and the Place des Quinconces, which is one of the largest city squares in Europe. Keep driving to the Girondins Monument, the Place de la Bourse, and the Porte Cailhau, a dramatic, 15th-century building that was once the main gate to the city.
You’ll explore the façades of the 18th century quays and the Chartrons district, and you can take advantage of your maneuverable, compact electric vehicle to trace the side streets of Old Bordeax. The route covers more than 6 miles (10 kilometers) within the UNESCO-listed city, and offers the flexibility to stop as often as you want—and you have the option to book with a group of friends and explore the city in a convoy.
The self-guided tour concludes a short distance away from La Cité du Vin, a museum that tells the story of wine from pre-history to modern day vineyards. You can use your ticket to La Cité du Vin at any time throughout the day, and it includes a wine tasting in Belvédère, the wine museum’s 8th-floor, glassed-in tasting room with views of the city.
