Pick up at your Cruise Ship in Bordeaux City

First, we will come and pick you up directly at your Cruise Ship in Bordeaux. Meet your certified Tour Guide who speaks impeccable English – other languages are possible on request. Your guide will go over the itinerary and program with you. It will then be time to begin your walking tour of Bordeaux.

Begin with the 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 the huge statues of Montesquieu and Montaigne.

Admire the Golden Triangle District

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 that 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.

Walk along the Stunning River Front

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.

Your accredited/licensed tour guide can be flexible on the itinerary but will definitely include the most famous landmarks. While in Bordeaux, other options include bike tours of the city as well as wine tours.
