What You Can Expect

Best Small-Group Burgundy Day Trip from Paris Including Chablis, Vézelay and Château de Bazoches

Enjoy an afternoon of wine tasting in Chablis

After early-morning pickup from your Paris hotel, take a scenic 2.5-hour drive by mini-coach to France’s breathtaking Burgundy region for a day of picturesque vineyard landscapes, wine tasting, charming villages and a grand château.

You’ll be awed by the beautiful scenery of rolling vineyard-covered hills and old-world villages when you arrive in northern Burgundy. Start with a visit to Château de Bazoches, a 12th-century hillside castle located on the site of an old Roman post on the gateway to Morvan. Explore the castle’s courtyard and interior with your guide while learning about its history and family lineage.

Later in the morning, head to Vézelay, arguably one of the most beautiful villages of France. Historically, Vézelay has served as a place of pilgrimage on the road to Santiago de Compostela and the gateway to Morvan; today it is a well-preserved village known for its white wine. Spend time roaming the town and visit Basilique St-Marie-Madeleine, a masterpiece of Romanesque art and UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Have lunch at La Coquille in Vézelay before enjoying an afternoon of wine tasting in Chablis, a famous wine region and town that's world-renowned for its chardonnay.

Explore Chablis’ winding cobblestone streets and visit 13th-century St-Martin Church with your guide. Then, head to a wine cellar to sample locally produced wine while learning about the art of winemaking throughout Burgundy.

Savor your last views of Burgundy’s picturesque scenery as you hop in the mini-coach and begin your relaxing drive back to Paris, arriving in the early evening.

Great Trip. Good guide and very good timing. Plus we got to see all that we wanted

4 star rating: Recommended April 2014

Very interesting stops and activities. It was a long quiet trip to and from Paris. I feels our guide could have done more to explain French history art and architecture along the way to make things move more smoothly.

3 star rating: Worth doing October 2015

The tour guide was great, friendly and knowledgable. His downfall was having a coworker with him and she was loud and never stopped talking. Someone doesn't pay for that at 6:30 in the morning. Wine tasting was wonderful, but this coworker dominated the hostess. It made us feel uncomfortable.


3 star rating: Worth doing May 2014

The countryside and sites visited were terrific. The wine tasting was nicely done. We originally thought that the tour would include several others but was just my wife and I with tour guide, Francis. He was outstanding. The downside was the early start at 0630 and lengthy drive both ways.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better May 2015

For the price I think it could have been better. Liked the small group, tour guide/driver was very knowledgeable. I felt rushed at the castle, lunch was okay. I expected more on the wine tour/tasting. The vineyard representative was difficult to understand. He seemed to want to rush us as well. The drive to the locations was great able to see the countryside.
