Want to know the best place to find Parisian city vibes, the most prestigious wines in the world, and the most incredible countryside scenery in France?
Look no further than Bordeaux and Dordogne.
The city of Bordeaux is considered by many a smaller version of Paris. It boasts the same style of grand architecture, a variety of neighborhoods with their own identities, scores of Michelin starred restaurants, and wonderful plazas and streets for walking, dining, and shopping. Outside the city you can find countless winemaking vineyards of the highest revered appellations and classes.
Dordogne on the other hand is a region that embodies everything your French countryside dreams are made of: cliff hanging medieval villages, stunning castles, amazing historical sites, lush landscapes, vibrant markets, prehistoric cave art, and more.
Trusted Arlington based French travel experts, TripUSAFrance, offer a small group tour that takes travelers on an immersive trip to Bordeaux and Dordogne with local guides for 8 full days of touring these amazing regions with site visits, walking tours, and rewarding local experiences mixed in such as a wine masterclass, truffle hunting in an orchard, breadmaking demonstration at an old mill, making your own wine, and that’s not all!
Keeping the tours to a maximum of 14 travelers is a more sustainable way of touring that allows guests to experience better connections with the regional culture, local artisans, fellow travelers, and guides. But it also limits availability of the tours so don’t wait to book your spots on these exclusive trips before they are gone.
