What people are saying about Aquitaine

Wonderful trip, guide and crew, and fellow passengers helpful getting my unsteady wife and walker on board. Forgot how cold it can be and left my jacket in car, but went below when it got too cold.

The sound system wasn’t working but the guide made great efforts to educate and entertain in equal measure, striding up and down the boat so we could all hear. His enthusiasm was infectious.

My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed this boat cruise. It enabled us to view Bordeaux from a different perspective. The tour guide & staff were wonderful—helpful, charming and knowledgeable.

A lovely way to see Bordeaux- highly recommend this trip. Informative and interesting.
