      Bordeaux & driving back to CDG

      Bordeaux Oct 29, 2016 at 11:41 AM

      We are planning a river cruise in the Box rivers and then driving back to Paris/CDG over 4-5 days. We're not yet sure what that route will be but possibly the Loire Valley, Mont Saint-Michel or ??? We have a choice of the beginning the cruise 6/4/17 or 10/8/17. Could we get your opinions on what would be the more enjoyable timing?rdeau

    • Wine tasting Bordeaux

      Bordeaux Jul 25, 2016 at 3:38 AM

      Hi there,

      Planning to visit Bordeaux in November. Would like to book a wine tasting tour. Have checked the ones provided on the website - unfortunately there is no public transport connection with those zones. Do you know any more places when wine tasting can be experienced? Or there is no chance to taste Bordeaux wine without a car? :)

    • 48hrs in Bordeaux - Wine tour, hotel and more

      Bordeaux Apr 13, 2015 at 7:52 AM

      Hi,

      I'm planning a weekend (from Friday night to Sunday night) in May.

      One of the things I'd definitely want to do is a Wine Tour. St Emilion seems to the most recommended choice both in terms of quality of wines and scenery. Now the main question would be whether it'd be worth doing a 1 day tour or just an afternoon one. What would you recommend? Also, small group or private?

      As far as the hotel is concerned, I have short listed the Grand Hotel and the Burdigala. I would get a fairly similar package for either at a similar price. I quite like the contemporary look of the Burdigala, but the Grand Hotel seems quite iconic and I love the fact that they have a spa that we could use. Any advice?

      Lastly, any other recommendations to make our 48 hours even more special?

      Chateaux tour by bike

      Bordeaux Mar 30, 2015 at 2:29 AM

      Bonjour!
      Was wondering if someone could advise on the protocol surrounding chateaux visits by bicycle? We would like to spend one day cycling in either Pauillac or Saint-Émilion, perhaps visiting Château Mouton Rothschild, Château Gruaud-Larose and Château Lynch-Bages, or Château Figeac, Château Troplong Mondot and Château de Pressac.
      Not sure what the dress code is when visiting these Chateau... Will they perceive it as disrespectful when arriving on a bicycle and dressed in jeans and short-sleeved shirt?
      Any feedback would be highly appreciated!
      Merci!

      A friend and I are taking a one week riverboat cruise starting 30/Sept and ending 06/Oct in Bordeaux, and would like to visit the Lascaux cave reproduction and possibly others in the area. Are there any one or two day tours from Bordeaux to the region? One of us will be coming from London and could fly directly to Bergerac. Are there tours from there, or possible a private guide to visit the area? Any advice will be appreciated.
