Solution perfectly suited to a cultural stay in this magnificent city of Bordeaux. Leaving your vehicle at the hotel and getting around by public transport also saves you time and energy to get your holidays off to a good start. We were made to feel very welcome at the tourist office, very well directed and 30 minutes later we were on the double decker bus for a very informative city tour !!! The Cité du vin, the Bassin des Lumières, the natural history museum, the Girondins fountain, travel… for 39 euros (48 hours) !!! Do not hesitate, go for it !!! The fact of materializing the card could simplify the handling but the exchange with the person of the office was worth the detour (foresee a little wait in August… normal)!

Very good combination and inexpensive. First the city tour to get to know everything, then you can visit the individual highlights. Relocation with public transport in Bordeaux perfect, you can get everywhere. You can also rent a bike at the numerous stations (V3). However, this is not included in the City Pass. The only disadvantage: the voucher must first be exchanged for the city pass at the tourist office, unfortunately opening times are only from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Otherwise everything is great!

You can go to Bordeaux without stress, everything is indicated, just remember to book your visits in advance: cathedral, little train and tourist bus, etc.

City pass 48h opened up lots of visits for a beautiful 2-day program in Bordeaux!

Free access to many museums and the ability to move around the city.
