What You Can Expect

Garonne River Cruise Including Lunch from Bordeaux

Catch a glimpse of Place de la Bourse during your lunchtime river cruise

Head for the waterfront of the Garonne River near the city center of Bordeaux to climb aboard the awaiting river boat and begin your lunchtime cruise. Enjoy a 'welcome aboard' apéritif as you get settled into your seat.
The Garonne River, one of the longest in France, cuts through Boardeaux and the famous wine country that surrounds it. This makes it a particularly scenic waterway, either in the countryside or in the UNESCO-listed city of Bordeaux.
As you float along the river, gaze out at the beautiful buildings along Bordeaux's waterfront. Drift past the 18th-century square called Place de la Bourse, designed by an architect working for King Louis XV. See the arch at Porte de Bourgogne on Quai Richelieu, glide underneath the Pont de Pierre and check out the impressive spire atop the Basilica of St Michael.
During the cruise, feast on a 3-course lunch prepared right on board the boat. The menu changes with the seasons, since the kitchen staff uses seasonal and local ingredients in the dishes, but a sample menu is listed in the Itinerary section below.
After the boat goes underneath the Pont d'Aquitaine and reaches the Château Grattequina, it turns around and goes back the other way toward the starting point, where the cruise ends after three hours.

This was an excellent experience. The staff were so friendly and efficient and the food really was delicious. The organization was very good we had a nice window table for just the two of us and the tables had already been allocated before boarding. It was a lovely way to spend a lunchtime and to see Bordeaux from the river. I can highly recommend this trip.

This wasn't quite what I expected, although my expectations may have been unreasonable. I expected to see more than the riverfront and did not. That being said, wha we did see was quite nice, the lunch was very good and the staff was friendly and professional.

the food and service were great but the view from the boat nothing to rave about. We enjoyed the time on board as the waiter and others on board were fun to converse with.
