While it is not a hop on hop off tour, the Visiotour provides a wonderful overview of this great city. The commentary is explicit and provides a great historical overview. The 1.5 hour tour was well worth it and we loved it!

Me and my Grandparents went on the Visiotour Bordeaux on 5/7/2018 and it was a great experience. It gave us history about the Garonne and the City Centre itself it was a delight to have it in English commentary.
