A great way to see the city on a hot day! We sat at a table at the back of the boat in the shade with a cool breeze. The compère managed to give us a running commentary in three languages! She was interested in us as well as telling us about the highlights of the city. The length of the trip was perfect - just 90 minutes and the glass of wine was lovely

The Bordeaux city pass was definitely worth the price! It gave us access to several museums including La Cité Du Vin. We had free transportation which came in handy when going to the airport on our final day. It also saved us tons of money since we didn't have to use Ubers or taxis. Sometimes the buses were a little off or the stops where in odd locations but otherwise I highly recommend!

We did the morning tour with Quentin, who was really fun and informative. We navigated the main part of the city, stopping at a bakery, a chocolatier, where we saw where the gorgeous treats are made (so cool!). We ended our time with a wonderful homemade lunch of quiche and salad and wine and good laughs. Definitely recommend the tour, and specifically, Quentin! Thank you!

Solution perfectly suited to a cultural stay in this magnificent city of Bordeaux. Leaving your vehicle at the hotel and getting around by public transport also saves you time and energy to get your holidays off to a good start. We were made to feel very welcome at the tourist office, very well directed and 30 minutes later we were on the double decker bus for a very informative city tour !!! The Cité du vin, the Bassin des Lumières, the natural history museum, the Girondins fountain, travel… for 39 euros (48 hours) !!! Do not hesitate, go for it !!! The fact of materializing the card could simplify the handling but the exchange with the person of the office was worth the detour (foresee a little wait in August… normal)!
Very well maintained boats, with a beautiful ride and very informative comments. Suitable for both adults and children. The glass of wine, (soft for children) and cannelés were also very appreciable. Be careful, however, to trust the address of the opposite street, otherwise the platform will be difficult to find.
