Best of Bordeaux & Paris Cruise Itinerary

Welcome to Bordeaux! Your ship is conveniently located in the centre of the city, allowing you to view the beautiful architecture and scenery of this exquisite French locale. Head to the local food markets for some French cuisine then off to the very popular Saint-Michel flea market. It’s now time to board River Royale for your 8 day river cruise!
Famed for it’s dessert wines, Cadillac is the perfect spot to enjoy a wine pairing lunch in a 14th century fortress with a local wine producer. This exclusive tour will see you introduced to France in impeccable style.
You’ll be greeted by miles upon miles of grapevines and an array of architectural beauties in the Medoc region. Choose between two tours today – a guided vineyard bicycle ride, topped off with wine tasting or explore the Médoc châteaux route with an exclusive wine tasting. You’ll explore architecture derived from three periods – renaissance, Greek Revival and medieval whilst cruising the Garonne River and Gironde Estuary.


Take a scenic drive along the Route de la Corniche Fleurie, visiting Blaye Fortress. It is one of the most beautiful roads in the world, surrounded by flowers that were sprouted by local sea captains. Cruising down the Dordogne River is a peaceful journey with fishing huts and grassy marshlands juxtaposed against towering limestone cliffs. In the afternoon, your journey will venture to Bourg-sur-Gironde where you can climb the stone stairs all the way up to the pinnacle of the village and overlook the Gironde and Dordogne rivers.
Stroll through the medieval township of Libourne, along cobblstone streets you will find wine shops, bakeries and the stunning rock-hewn church that delves beneath the ground. Another must-do is a wine tasting afternoon in the cellars of a famed Grand Cru estate. If you have the energy, a trip to Saint-Émilion is definitely recommended, you’ll be able to brush up on region’s history and its longstanding wine culture.
The region’s impeccable wine is mostly derived from the soil in which it is grown, the same can be said for the local cuisine. Head to the local farmers market for extraordinary produce and enjoy a delicious lunch. Choose between a Village Day with the aforementioned farmers market or attend the Bordeaux under the stars tour on an open bus journey with the illuminated city.
Welcome back to Bordeaux, it is much like its big sister Paris but wonderfully younger and more invigorating than the French capital. Explore the backstreets via two feet or two wheels and enjoy the complimentary Captain’s Farewell Reception and Dinner on your final night in board River Royale.
Disembark the ship in Bordeaux and catch the complimentary transfer to your Bordeaux hotel, all thanks to My Cruises!
