Discover Burgundy 

What makes Burgundy so special?  Choose this tour and you will find out.  We start the day with a guided visit to the magnificent Hôtel Dieu.  This historic monument first opened its doors to the poor in 1452 and continued as a hospital until 1971.  Supported by donations of the famed Burgundian vineyards, the proceeds of the world famous annual wine auction continue to benefit both the Hospice and the town's modern hospital.  A drive through the vineyards follows, where we will visit a local wine cellar for a private visit and tasting of the renowned vin de Bourgogne.
After lunch we will visit Chateauneuf en Auxois and its ancient fortified castle.  We will have a guided tour of the refurbished rooms and be privy to one of the region's first indoor toilets.  The day will be rounded of with a visit to a local auberge to taste some of the region's traditional aperitifs.

Guide price for 4, not including lunch, €960 (€240 per person).
