Travel inspiration in Bordeaux and Paris
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.
Paris, the capital of France
One of the world’s greatest cities, Paris! The capital of France is also known as the City of Light. This enchanting city, at the crossroads of cultures, is the capital of fashion and home to world highlights such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Avenue des Champs Elysées, to name but a few. In terms of architectural beauty, art history, events, gastronomy and sheer extravagance, Paris is a milestone ahead of any other city on earth. Paris has one of the world’s most extensive public transport systems. You can take a taxi if you are not much of an adventurer, but that would be a pity! Metro (subway or underground), buses and city bicycles are much more fun and are very easy to use, even for beginners.
Reviews & ratings Bordeaux - Paris
"Catching the connecting train". 13/11/2015
We almost failed to catch our connecting train from Bordeaux to Paris. Our first train arrived late and we experienced difficulty in finding our connecting train because there are no proper signs / instructions at the station. At the connecting train, we have to hop on the first car we saw, dragging our luggages, because there's no more time figuring out which car we are supposed to board. The train started moving just in time when we boarded.
"Train stops notification". 13/11/2015
It was a night train and there's a good change that you will miss your stop if you stay inside your cabin since there's no "silent" alert that would inform the passengers of the next stop. In our case, we just stood near the exit door more than 30min before the scheduled arrival at Lourdes station just to make sure we will not miss our stop.
"A Great Way 2 Travel In France"Douglas w. 11/11/2015
The trains run on time, they're comfortable, the website works well for searching times and booking trips. This was our third trip on TGV in the past year and we'll be sure to use it the next time we're in France. One warning - they allow anyone on the boarding platform at Montparnasse so it is chaos getting to your car, especially if it is at the back of the train. Be sure to give yourself lots of time to fight the crowds if you're departing from Montparnasse.
"Peaceful Passage to Paris"Cheryl b. 13/06/2015
After 3 weeks of travel across Southern France (biking, hiking, and driving), we settled into our TGV seats for a relaxing 5.5 hour ride back to Paris. How pleasant it was to have time to reflect on our travels and rest. We did not find the angle of the headrest comfortable, so we got out the inflatable pillows we use on airline flights and it was fine. We had our own picnic, so I cannot comment on the train food. The coffee was excellent. Next time I am in Paris I will remember how easy it is to get to the beach in Biarritz!
"Trip to Bordeaux". 14/05/2015
Very good and comfortable trip. Train arrive on time. A little bit difficult to find a space to store my big suitcase and there is no help from the train staff.
"trip with luggage"Sergey l. 13/05/2015
very comfortable on the train, but not enough space for large suitcases
"Bordeaux "Kenneth k. 19/04/2015
Nice way to see french country side, without driving.
"Poor Security"Charudatta b. 16/12/2014
I did four trips in TGV, out of four I there were incidences of thefts in two trips. My co passenger lost his bag with laptop, tablet and important documents. In other incident my wallet was stolen with all the cash and credit cards. i Do not found any CC TV monitoring the movement within the train which is a MUST. I have registered police complaint but did not receive any feedback neither from police or from TGV.
"Smooth, Timely and Safe trip". 25/11/2014
Really delighted with the smooth and timely trip. Officers came around to check tickets and make their rounds gave a safe feeling.
"PARIS MONTPARNASSE - BORDEAUX "Tsui Wun l. 03/11/2014
very good experience
"Great experience!"Gillian d. 29/09/2014
We had a very positive experience on our trip to Paris. The seats were very comfortable, and the pre-assigned seats made the boarding process quite smooth. The one aspect of the journey that could be improved upon is the ticket printing process. The ticket machine was unable to read my credit card (it does have a chip), and the agent at the window had a difficult time finding out booking despite the fact that we had all the necessary information. Overall it was a great experience and we will certainly do it again if we have the opportunity!
"Excellent"Erik l. 29/09/2014
Fantastic view of landscape. France at its best.
"average"Regina k. 28/09/2014
No wifi on this train available Hot meal was not available,even a very simple one Suggest to have hot meal like soup etc , just simple ones.
"Easy way to travel"Nicholas m. 20/09/2014
This was a comfortable easy way to travel from Paris to Bordeaux. We travelled first class with friends and were in a 4 seater with a table. The only negative was that the carriages are not well marked so it took a while to locate the correct carriage. We were fortunate not to have any changes especially with luggage. I would definitely travel by train again as it's a great way to see the countryside and timing wise, it was the same as flying.
"Comfortable and effecient..". 17/09/2014
