Your Burgundy et al tour was terrific. The food and wine were memorable, and plentiful. I loved the wine tastings, the tour of the Gaugry Fromagerie and Fallot mustard. Hospices de Beaune ,Abbaye de Cluny, and apéritif chez Daniel and Sarah were stand-outs. It was six days of fun and education. I loved the surprises along the way. We had a very congenial group...Pat and Mary are lovely. And it was delightful spending time with you and the amazing Monika. She is the best. I'm so glad I joined in the fun.

"Well you've done it again, another successful adventure. Beginning in Lyon, then into the Beaujolais and Burgundy regions, ending in Dijon was wonderful. Visited many wineries for tastings the wines, and enjoyed an array fine meals. The hospitality extended by Daniel and Sarah to a gathering at their home to our group was a pleasant surprise. The accommodation at the Chateau were first class. We had a really great group that were fun to travel with."

I can but echo the sentiments of my fellow travelers: good company, many delicious wines and stellar food, spot-on tours, a lovely visit with Daniel and Sarah in their beautiful home...what a design-build team they make and all done in under a year! Wow! Seeing Burgundy in a whole new way, in a whole new light.
