Not a cruise, mostly bus tours.
"Cruise from Bordeaux turned into many bus rides: to Sauternes (instead of cruise) and after dinner in the Medoc back to Bordeaux, instead of cruise next morning as advertised.That cruise we always recommend to friends, this one with reservations...."Read More

Not a typical river cruise

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Forseti

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Partially due to inclined weather conditions, the cruising part of this trip has been dramatically reduced. Majority of the excursions fall under the side of 'a bit boring' category. Fortunately, we booked the pre-cruise excursion that highlighted the whole experience, otherwise, the river cruise part alone would not earn my praise at all. While the executive chef made the daily dinner ...

Overall Good, but aspects were disappointing

We recently completed the Bordeaux river cruise with Viking. The overall experience was good, but a couple aspects of the cruise were disappointing. Firstly, the staff were generally very courteous, professional and well trained. A couple exceptions, but overall excellent service. The Forseti is a beautiful boat, but the ship was missing a gym, hot tub and bikes. I noticed the Uniworld ...

I just got back from the Viking Forseti river ship in Bordeaux. I have been on 5 Viking trips, so far, and have a 6th booked in April. Bordeaux was wonderful in many aspects. Viking staff was great; the chef was marvelous, I feel the best food I have had on Viking so far. Viking staff went over & above in taking staff & Food to Chateau Kirwan and they put on a full banquet in our honor. The ...

Happiness on a river

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Forseti

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We were looking for a wine cruise and this one fit the bill. The staff on board went out of their way to make sure we were having a wonderful time. Our luggage was lost for 13 days and the people at the front desk were on the phone daily trying to track it down. We loved our little cabin and Adrian who kept it impeccable. The chef was a hoot but even more importantly, the food was beyond ...

The Paris and Loire extension was excellent, well timed, with comfortable and good hotels. Surprisingly, enough time to do a mini city tour of Paris by taxi (no traffic, Parisians are on vacation in August) and easy restaurant reservations. Busy at the Chateaus we visited, but our guides whisked us right by them. Traffic much less than expected, only near Bordeaux somewhat ...

Fantastic way to visit the Bordeaux Region of France

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Forseti

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We had a great time visiting the Bordeaux Region of France in the comfort of the well equipped Viking Forseti ship. The ship's crew was welcoming and a joy to be with on our journey with them. On board food and beverage was excellent with a wide choice of options. Housekeeping staff was meticulous in keeping our Stateroom fresh twice a day. On shore excursions were available every full day ...

Beautiful Country and Fantastic Viking Service

This was our second Viking river cruise. First was the Rhine in 2019 and now this Bordeaux Wine Cruise. Both cruises were great. The countries were beautiful and the Viking experience is second-to-none. Great excursions, fantastic tour guides and highly skilled bus drivers. The food was good, sometimes exceptional. The entire Viking staff is always excellent. We paid extra for the Silver Spirt ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We were looking for a French river cruise that included wine regions, and this was the one that fit our timeline. We loved the regions and the tours that we selected. The Loire valley was beautiful, I would love to spend more time there, along with more time in Bordeaux and St Emilion. The accommodations on the boat and the hotel selections were above expectations, the chateau’s we visited and ...

This was our first river cruise and the experience was beyond expectation. The entire staff obviously love what they do and it reflects in the experience my husband and I received. From the moment we stepped on board, check in was smooth, our cabins were immaculate and well appointed as was the entire ship. The dining experience, from the quality of the food, the wine and the staff was five ...
