Vi syntes det var deilig med litt fart på elven og valgte en tur på en time. Helt perfekt. Hadde tenkt å ta buss, men hadde god tid og endte opp med å gå til møtested. Det tok en drøy time. Hadde ikke kjørt vannscooter tidligere, men det var veldig gøy og guiden var veldig profesjonell og flink til å forklare. Etterpå spiste vi en deilig hamburger rett ved siden av der scooterne lå med utsikt over elva, før vi tok fergen tilbake til Bordeaux. Alt på ett sted. En fantastisk tur og opplevelse

I was traveling with my teenage son and this was his best day ever!! I was the passenger so had to hang on for my life :-) but we had the best of times

Guided jet ski tour was very exciting and lots of fun!
