European Stopover & City Map

AT YOUR SERVICE. This is a great idea for experiencing Bordeaux where you can choose your preferred level of accommodation. It can, of course, be modified and/or extended. As we are experts in customizing itineraries to suit your personal interests, time available and budget, we at Goway are at your service!

This 3-day Bordeaux stop gives you just a taste of one of France’s unsung hero cities. Heroic for its contributions to wine, that is. Your time is entirely at leisure, so sample the flavours of some of France’s greatest wineries including Lafitte, Lynch Bages, Margaux, and Latour, weaving your way through elegant chateaus before returning to Bordeaux proper. The city sights are modest compared to some of France’s more famous stops, offering a backdrop to your wine tasting that’s light on tourists, but big on character.

They are just a sample as we can personalize your stay according to your interests, time available and budget.
