Bordeaux Bordeaux City Tour On Your Own Excursion Reviews

There is an incredible variety of things to see and do in the French city of Bordeaux, but thanks to its well-planned design, it's totally possible to explore and enjoy on a self-guided tour -- even during a single port day. See sights like the Triangle D'Or and the Old City, which is UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Unexpectantly a welcome tour was offered when we arrived.

I enjoyed Bordeaux far more than I did Paris.

I enjoyed Bordeaux far more than I did Paris. It is a beautiful old city on the Garonne River that is not too crowded.
