Bordeaux city guide
Bordeaux, gateway to vineyards
Bordeaux is located in the heart of the Aquitaine region and is only 3 hours away by TGV from Paris. Listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, it is the epicurean French destination par excellence. Bordeaux has over a hundred thousand hectares of vineyards and 10,000 grape growers. The city produces large quantities as well as some of the most expensive wines in the world. From Bordeaux, you can take the train to Saint Emilion, one of the world’s most famous vineyards, or opt for a guided tour in a vineyard to taste one of the famous vintage wines of Margaux, Pauillac or Saint-Julien.
Have a walk along the Quais de la Garonne overlooked by the harmonious 18th century façades. Continue to the cathedral Saint-André and the nearby Pey-Berland tower for a panorama over the city. In the evening, have a drink in the Allées de Tourny with a view over the Grand Théâtre. There are two public parks in Bordeaux where you can relax - Jardin botanique de Bordeaux and Jardin botanique de la Bastide. Nature lovers should visit the Bassin d’Arcachon to enjoy a moment of pure bliss on top of its Dune du Pyla (Europe’s highest sand dune) which has an imposing view over the Atlantic Ocean.
Take a break on a terrasse in the quartier Saint-Pierre to sample some of the finest wines together with a Magret de canard and a cannelé (local pastry).
Bordeaux has a wealth of luxury stores which are located in the Golden Triangle, within, Cours de l’Intendance, Cours Georges Clemenceau and Allées de Tourny.

- "Good value for money " Wai Man y. 20/01/2014
Good value for money and time saving. But the platform schedule showed 25 minutes before the train depart made foreign tourists panic!
- "comfortable seat and service " Yu-fan c. 17/12/2013
TGV offers very comfortable seat and good service, and it is very convenient booking online from oversea. we quite enjoy this trip.
- "Easy and Cheap" Nazli a. 02/12/2013
I got my online ticket months before my trip so it was cheap. And printing tickets at home is amazing. I showed my A4 size paper ticket, the officers checked it with a device. They were polite. We had no problem. Thank you
- "Disappointed" Billy m. 18/11/2013
The train was fine; However there was not enough room for luggage and also on the trip from Bordeuax to Paris, the bar was not open; On a Saturday, I do not understand why, with a first class ticket, I can not get a glass of wine on a 4 hour train ride
- "Travelling France via Rail" King Shan Carol c. 16/11/2013
It was a pleasant journey in general. We appreciated the speed of the train. Yet, we hope the hygiene of the toilets could be improved. On our journey from Marseilles to Bordeaux, all the toilets on the train was extremely filthy. It was a long journey and we needed to go to toilet quite often. Thanks for reading my review. Carol
- "Comfort and convenience " . 27/10/2013
we dropped the car off in Bordeaux before heading back to Paris. Great trip, convenient and comfortable. One tip though, take your own food and drink. Buying on the train is expensive. Otherwise no complaints. Would definitely do it again.
- "Visit to Bordeaux" Michael s. 13/10/2013
The ticket machines at the station would not print our tickets either way but the ticket office printed them without question. The 2nd class seating was comfortable and the TGV speedy except it was late leaving both Paris and Bordeaux (20 mins each time).
- "The TGV Service is great" . 02/10/2013
Travel by TGV beats flying or driving any day
- "trip from bordeaux to paris" Gidon n. 29/09/2013
we enjoyed very much the trip. it was quite, smooth and comfortable
- "Ease and Comfort" Raymond a. 27/09/2013
TGV is the way to go when getting around France - convenient, always precisely on time, clean, comfortable and quick - a very relaxing way to travel. It beats air or car hands down.
- "Comments" . 19/09/2013
I liked how efficient and friendly the TGV service was, when I asked for help in getting to the right carriage and seat. What might have made it even more memorable was in knowing that there was a meal cart where my friends and I could lounge during the journey. I only discovered this by chance when I went to the bathroom.
- "Good" Lorten h. 15/09/2013
This is good for my trip to meander inter-cities in France. But since many tourists take it the fundamental tool to design their trips, more room for their luggages will be appreciated. Thanks!
- "Well done!" Clayton Jaison f. 12/09/2013
The TGV was very comfortable and the assiatance personnel at Bordeaux were very courteous.
- "Carriage Numbering" Andrew t. 08/09/2013
Carefull about coach numbering- if your'e waiting at the engine end for #1 1st class, esp on a combined train, you may well find its the last carriage, and if like me, by the time you realise, there isn't enough time to make it down there, you'll end up jumping on in the middle carriages , 2nd class , and if you're lucky, find a seat.
- "nice trip" Mats e. 05/09/2013
We had a nice and relaxing trip by train, hope to do it again soon.
