Wow, the timing of trips up the Garonne varies a lot. We went up the river on Nautica a week or so before the Marina in September early in the morning (it is a long trip) but the ship went to Le Verdon the next morning while we were touring and we returned there. The Garonne is interesting but I would rather have docked both days in Verdon and had more time touring there is so much to see. OTOH, many had nice dinners and around Bordeaux during the overnight and it really is a beautiful city.
