Burgundy first stole my heart when I worked on board the luxury hotel barges in 1991. Now, living amongst the vineyards with my young family I have a real affinity with Burgundy as I am able to watch the vines growing during the passing seasons from the comfort of my own home. Not that the region is only about wine, with many Michelin restaurants in the area and a wealth of UNESCO sites we are never short of something to do. Fully registered with ATOUT France to provide transport I am also the holder of the prestigious label "Vignobles et Découvertes" awarded jointly by the Chamber of Commerce and the French Tourist Board. As the only specialist provider in Beaune of totally private tours contact me now to create your dream tour.
