      About this Bergerac tour

      This tour starts in the heart of Bergerac's old town. Explore the area on a 60-minute walking tour along the neighborhood's cobblestone street, past the statue of Cyrano de Bergerac and by the cathedral, whose spire dominates the cityscape. After the tour, you'll have an hour to explore the local shops in town on your own.

      Board a traditional open-air French barge for a 90-minute cruise along the picturesque Dordogne River, which dominates the landscape in this part of the country, gliding slowly by vineyards, verdant hills and dramatic cliffs that seem to come right to the water's edge.

      Upon disembarking the barge, you’ll travel to Monbazillac Castle, which dates back to Medieval times for a tour and a taste of the local sweet, white wine that bears the castle’s name

      Keep in mind that the stores in Bergerac (as in most parts of France) are not open on Sundays and most museums are closed on Mondays.

      Be Sure to Drink the Local Wine!

      The residents of Monbazillac have been crafting wine for centuries. However, it's only been since 1936 that this appellation has become a protected designation under the French government. Monbazillac Qine is made from a blend of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle grapes and tastes something like a Sauterne. Monbazillac wine can only be made from grapes that have been affected by so-called "noble rot," a type of bacteria that concentrates the sugar in the grapes. All grapes used in this wine are harvested by hand; no mechanical picking machines are allowed.
