"Where did you go?" is grammatically correct.

To improve the second one, you could say "Where had you gone?" or "Where were you gone?"

    Even "Where were you gone?" sounds off to me. I'd just stick to the first one personally. Commented Sep 25, 2019 at 10:20
  • If you want to rephrase the second sentence in that sense, it should be Where have you gone? Commented Sep 26, 2019 at 1:50
  • @JasonBassford But that changes the tense of the sentence.

  • @BellaSwan It's still in the past tense and means roughly the same thing. Where were you gone? is unidiomatic, verging on ungrammatical. I certainly wouldn't recommend anybody say it. (Even Where had you gone? would be preferable.) Commented Sep 26, 2019 at 6:20
