Specialized tour guides based in Paris and Burgundy
Historic Burgundy is only 1hour and 40 minutes away from Paris by TGV, and we arrange many day trips from Paris. It is also a good halfway destination for clients traveling between Paris and Provence. For those who would like to explore this famous wine region in-depth we recommend a two- to three-night stay.
The two main wine areas are:
•Cote de Beaune, located south of the charming city of Beaune, is famous for both white wine — Puligny Montrachet and Meursault — and red wines such as Pommard, and Volnay.
•Cote de Nuits, located north of Beaune, is exclusively red wine country — Aloxe-Corton, Nuits-St-Georges, Vougeot, and Gevrey-Chambertin.
In Burgundy, we can also arrange hot air ballooning, biking, cooking classes and horseback riding.
Note: We highly recommend a visit to Lyon, either as part of a Burgundy stay, or on its own. This beautiful city is just two hours away from Paris by TGV (about 30-minutes south of Beaune), and we can arrange walking tours, cooking classes, visits to open markets, antiquing, and Beaujolais wine tasting.
