Burgundy by Request - Private Guided Tours in Burgundy

Your Guides

Private wine guide
Tracy Thurling
Having first worked in this beautiful region in  1992, I spent several seasons as a Tour Guide and Tour Director on the luxury hotel barges that cruise on the stunning waterways of Burgundy.

Following a successful management career in overseas tourism I decided to return to my first  love - France and Burgundy, an area rich in culture, heritage, wine and the art of fine living.  What  could be better?

I then secured a job, which I loved, advising clients about wine in a prestigious Côte d'Or wine cellar, but found that I missed sharing my love of the region with other people.  Deciding to combine the two I set up Burgundy by Request to introduce visitors to the rich cultural heritage of Burgundy.  After a couple of years I realised that there was such a demand for personalised tours I decided to leave the wine cellar altogether and concentrate on providing purely personal tours to lovers of Burgundy.

Since then I have honed my skills on trade courses at the prestigious Ecole des Vins in Beaune and have become a professional wine taster for the Concours des Feminalise and the Guide Hachette.  My latest project is instructing the students at the local technical college studying for a qualification in Wines and Spirits.
