A great overview of a really interesting city, eith a nice mix of city streets and a bit of parkland. Well-timed breaks for canneles (Bordeaux's own pastry), a stroll around Darwin with toilets available, and view spots for pictures. A short climb up one of the bridges to make you feel you got your exercise.

The tour guide had a lot of interesting things to tell about Bordeaux and its history. 90 minutes boat trip + drink - very good price/performance ratio. Definitely recommended!

A good moment of relaxation. What is enjoyable is above all doing the activity at our own pace, without constraints. Good culture/play balance. Very good value for money.

Fantastic way to explore a city at your own leisure and pace, would definitely recommend

Very good time spent on the boat, the guide and the team were great! I recommend :)
