Our Knowledgeable and Enthusiastic Guides Will Share Bordeaux’s Transformation with You

Welcome to Bordeaux! Come and discover one of the most fascinating French towns on this full day tour. Coined the “Sleeping Beauty”, the city has undergone a radical transformation leading it to be declared UNESCO World Heritage in 2007.

Begin your tour in Quinconces Square

Your first stop, located just a few minutes away, will certainly be the Place des Quinconces, the most emblematic square of the town and one of the largest squares in Europe. Formerly the location of Château Trompette, built next to the Garonne River, this fortress was part of a larger military architectural ensemble that was built when France finally recovered Bordeaux from the English. The square also features the Monument to the Girondins as well as huge statues of Montesquieu and Montaigne.

Discover the Golden Triangle of Bordeaux

Your walking tour of Bordeaux will then move on to the heart of the City nicknamed the ‘Golden Triangle’. Defined by three Boulevards, including high-end Cours de l’Intendance, the heart of Bordeaux is without a doubt Place de la Comédie. This large square features the Grand Hotel de Bordeaux to one side and the Grand Théâtre on the other. This masterpiece of 18th-century architecture was designed by Victor Louis who also designed Comédie Française in Paris.

Bordeaux River Front & famous Landmarks

Other highlights of this private tour include the Place de la Bourse (Stock Exchange) located next to the River where the now famous water mirror lies. More Big-ticket attractions and sights include the Cathedral of St Andrew, Pey Berland square and tower as well as the bustling Rue Sainte Catherine, one of the longest shopping streets of Europe. After the visit, enjoy some free time for lunch (at own expense). Don't hesitate to ask your guide for recommendations.

Lunch and wine tasting in Bordeaux

After your morning visit, you will have time to explore Bordeaux on your own. You can stroll through the narrow medieval streets of the city centre into the shopping district. Before lunch, why not stop in one of the numerous wine bars of Bordeaux to taste the local wines. Your guide will certainly make recommendations where it will be possible for you to taste Saint Emilion, Medoc, Pessac-Léognan or Sauternes wines. 

For lunch, Bordeaux is home to a very large number of small, family owned, restaurants that serve traditional south western France cuisine. Again, dont hesitate to speak with your guide who will be happy to make suggestions according to your wishes.

After your free time and lunch, it will be time to make your way back to Pauillac Cruise port where will drop you off at the ship.
