Whether it’s wine tasting in the cellars of Chablis or a tour of the architectural gems of Vézelay, Burgundy has a lot to offer travellers.

Vézelay is a tiny village in Burgundy surrounded by vineyards and sunflower fields. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is a favourite with tourists because of its picturesque setting and the famous basilica of Saint Mary Madeleine.

Wine tasting in the cellars of Chablis is a must-do experience in Burgundy. The dry, light, white wine gets its name from the sleepy town of Chablis, where bottle upon bottle of ageing wine lies in underground cellars.

The land of fine food and wine, Burgundy is a great place to enjoy the good life and appreciate the beauty of France.

You will be picked up in an air-conditioned coach. Departing Paris at 0745h (07:45am) you will head towards Burgundy.

Follow the Serein river and travel to Chablis, a small town which produces dry, light white wine. Chablis is the capital of the Basse Bourgogne vineyards and the wine gets its unique character from the area’s clay and limestone soil. Visit one of the cellars of the region and enjoy a wine tasting session.

Continue to Vézelay. This tiny village is an architectural gem of France and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take a guided tour of the basilica dedicated to Saint Mary Madeleine, and admire its Roman carvings and round arches. You will also have free time to stroll around and enjoy the beauty of the landscape before taking lunch in the village.

Return to your hotel in Paris in the coach, arriving at around 1945h (07:45pm).

Ms Michele L Shay

A pleasant bus trip to the country. Nothing rushed. A winery tour and lunch in a little village with free time to wander and then off to Basilica Mary Magdalena in Vezelay. A solid hike up to the Basilica but well worth it and again, plenty of time to enjoy the walk up and the view.

Emily S Merchant

Fantastic, relaxing way to spend a day in France. The fields covered in a carpet of yellow mustard plants were beautiful. The meal included was delicious and not your usual tour package meal, much better. Walking up the hill to see the old cathedral and looking in the little shops along the way was good exercise in a quaint little village. I would like to have a just a little longer here. Trip well worth the money.

I took the tour Sept 19th 2013 - and had a Great time! PLUSES: it was an opportunity to see the other France - the beautiful French countryside. Every thing in the promo was provided. Plus - Met some really nice people. MINUSES: had to walk about 3 blocks from the office - in the dark - in order to get to our bus. A vegetarian choice for lunch would had been nice. Free Wine included with the lunch would have also been nice. There were 2 guides on the bus - speaking 4 languages - so you continually had to hear the same thing repeated in 4 languages. Bottom line: I would recommend the tour - a great 1 day (very relaxing) get away from busy Paris.

Mrs Pamela Winterboune

We enjoyed the whole day. The bus driver and agents were very helpful and the English was excellent. The meal in the restaurant was average it would have been better if a glass of wine had been provided with the meal.
