It's just perfect!!! Far beyond transport and activities in Bordeaux. In Saint Emillion I had a guided tour and I was able to know the very curious history of the Monolithe church, for Saint Emillion you need to pay the bus, which costs 2.40 euros and remember to schedule the visit in advance! It was wonderful!!!!!

Really, really useful. In two days we used the trams numerous times, took the boat trip and visited a couple of museums for the price of the card. Great value and really convenient, and the information booklet that came with it laid out many of the options for visits in Bordeaux.

Good value, convenient, easy to use. A great way to get to know the town a bit.

Bordeaux is a lovely, interesting city and the pass made visiting a breeze.
