Get off your ship in Bordeaux and meet your tour guide for the perfect way to see both Bordeaux and one of its most beautiful historic villages on one shore excursion.

Explore Bordeaux, full of beautifully-preserved 18th-century buildings, on a guided walking tour. Admire the beautiful St. Andrew’s Cathedral, Grand Theatre, Pey Berland Tower, and Place des Quinconces with your guide before heading to Saint Emilion.

This charming village is one of the main wine towns in the famous Bordeaux wine region, surrounded by world-class vineyards. Admire the town's Romanesque architecture, and then enjoy some free time to continue exploring on your own. Get some lunch (own expense) or simply wander the beautiful narrow lanes.

From Saint Emilion, venture to a nearby winery to sample some of the well-known local wines in a Grand Cru Classé chateau. Learn about the process of making wine during a tour of the wine cellars and vat house.

Chloe was a wonderful guide. We had a tour of Bordeaux, time to walk around and have lunch in St Emillion and an interesting tour of a small vinyard/winery. The wine was rather good as well.

A well planned and executed tour. We were met at the ship, no problems. Our driver was very knowledgeable, friendly and a great communicator. I would suggest that you maximize your time in St-Emilion by sampling wine from several of the merchants. These samples are free. A great opportunity to get outside the port area of Bordeaux.

I felt we didn't see enough of Bordeaux but hurried to St. Emilion. We were not told our plans for the day. Went to a wine tasting at a store in St. Emilion which we were not interested in but we did enjoy the winery he took us too.
