A visit to this region is always a delightful experience. This very personalized tour has been meticulously designed to have you discover the history, culture, food and wines of Alsace through carefully chosen visits that combine the most significant sights as well as off the beaten path locations that only such a unique tour will permit.
Then head towards the Burgundy wine region. The centuries-old tradition of Burgundy winemaking is evident in the bountiful vineyards stretching across the landscape. Burgundy boasts some of the most acclaimed and luxurious wines in the world. The capital, Dijon, is a flourishing cultural hub, where visitors can step back into the past with its mix of gothic and art deco architecture.
