    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.

    To be honest we weren't expecting too much for the money, but this was quite lovely. An hour and half of floating history, swept by the tide and a font of knowledge churned out by a delightful Jordan, our guide. As for the wine tasting? Well a cheeky white number that titilated

    We chose the hour and half cruise as time was short .The commentary was very good in English and the wine sommelier was informative, and gave some great tips. Being on the river gave a different perspective in seeing the beautiful buildings along with some history. Good value.
