The Bountiful Beauty of Bordeaux

The rivers that flow through Southwestern France are your gateway to wonderful wines, winsome villages, world-class architecture and delectable cuisine. You may know Bordeaux for its world-class vineyards, but on a French river cruise on the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers you'll also be introduced to the history, art and natural beauty of the Aquitaine region. Experience everything we love about the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers.

Garonne River Highlights

BECOME A BON-VIVANT

While best-known for the wine that carries its name, Bordeaux and the greater Nouvelle-Aquitaine region are replete with delightful dishes that will please your palate. Our local connections will bring these offerings to your plate as part of our onboard dining experience.

Garonne River Highlights

LAND OF TWO RIVERS

Rising high in France's Massif Central, the Dordogne River flows 300 miles eastward before joining the Garonne just north of Bordeaux. Along with their respective tributaries, these rivers connect most of southern France.

Garonne River Highlights

STEEPED IN HISTORY

Long before it was known for its wine, people have flocked to the region around the Garonne River. While it's changed hands many times over the centuries, each left their mark giving the area a rich architectural and cultural history.

Garonne River Highlights

BORDEAUX-LESS POTENTIAL

It's location near the mouth of the Garonne River allowed Bordeaux to become the second busiest port in the world, after London, in the 18th century. In modern times it is a vibrant hub of art, culture and fine dining.
