Agents explore Bordeaux by river with Viking
A group of eight lucky Australian travel agents recently sipped and savoured France’s finest flavours during Viking’s eight-day Chateaux, Rivers & Wine voyage onboard Viking Forseti, sailing the Garonne River and exploring the Bordeaux region.
With two overnight stays in Bordeaux, the itinerary also visited Cadillac, Libourne, Bourg & Blaye and Pauillac in France. The agents – none of whom had visited Bordeaux before – enjoyed seven included shore excursions along the journey, allowing them to explore the region’s ports, vineyards, farms and forests, as well as its stunning architecture, warm culture and relaxed pace.
Onboard their elegant Viking Longship, agents and guests were treated to destination-inspired cuisine as well as al-fresco wine and cheese tastings on the Aquavit Terrace.
Sailing through a region synonymous with fine wine and finer living, it’s no surprise the unanimous highlight of the trip was the food and wine.
