We cruise down the River Garonne and then join the River Gironde, passing Patiras Island before arriving at Pauillac at lunchtime. Join our included excursion to the Médoc – a renowned region off the beaten track, where the most famous of all red wines in the world are cultivated. We pass through many of the great Médoc appellations, following the famous Châteaux Route. We berth in Pauillac overnight.
We set sail early this morning, cruising to the Gironde estuary, passing Meschers-sur-Gironde with its steep cliffs, Troglodyte houses and fishermen’s huts, before arriving in Blaye. Join our included excursion by coach along the Corniche, or cliff route. The scenery here is an unusual combination of river, rocks and vines. We stop at the charming village of Bourg, built on a rocky outcrop enclosed by medieval ramparts then return to Blaye, with its citadel.

Please note: At some ports of call, a degree of walking may be involved to join our coach. Due to limited docking facilities, it may be necessary to dock alongside another ship, via which you can gain access to the shore. Ships Policy - people are welcome to bring their walking aid to the ship but only for use ashore. The space on board in restaurant, corridors and cabins is very limited. Using a walking aid on board would be an obstacle for other passengers in the restaurant and crew members who are serving in the restaurant or bar. Also keep in mind the damaging on the walls and furniture in cabins and corridors. Everybody on board also needs to be able to walk on their own in case of emergency or evacuation.
Prices are per person, based on two sharing a lower deck cabin. No single rooms/cabins available.

Overnight stays in Chinon and the Paris area will be in city-style hotels.
We are unable to guarantee that the hotel will be able to meet your dietary requirements. We find that the majority of European countries do not
generally cater for vegetarians and that the meal supplied may well be what everyone else is having minus the meat.
We will of course endeavour to arrange for a vegetarian meal at the hotel. We do however suggest that you advise us of your dietary requests
at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
