Bordeaux Region River Cruise

Bordeaux Region River Cruise

Cruise the Bordeaux and Dordogne Regions on the Gironde & Garonne Rivers. A CITO tour by boat.

Two great rivers and the Gironde Estuary. A complex and colourful mosaic of scenery, textures and moods. Come and join us as we explore this rich and diverse region.

 

DAY 1: Your Door to Door service will transfer you to our tour coach for the journey south and the Eurotunnel to Calais. We will continue south for our overnight stay in the Liseux or Rouen area.

 

DAY 2: After breakfast, we continue our journey to Bordeaux where we board our ship in time to settle in to our cabins before our welcome cocktail and introduction to the crew.

 

Highlights of the cruise include:

 

• Sail the Garonne, joining the Gironde and passing Cazeau Island and Patiras Island before arriving in Paulliac - the capital of the Medoc wine region.
