Feel free to Email or Call Us at 1-888-846-2337 with any questions, but here is a general idea of what we’ve arranged:

Fabulous Accommodations:

  • 4 nights in a 4-star boutique hotel in St. Germain Region of Paris
  • 2 nights in a private inn located overlooking Cognac’s Grand Champagne vineyards with a setting that can only be described as heaven on earth
  • 3 nights in one of the top rated hotels of Bordeaux

Tours and Sightseeing Designed to Share the Best of Each Region:


  • A gourmet dinner cruise on the Seine River
  • Private VIP visits and tastings at some of the coolest breweries in Paris, including O’clock Brewing and Gallia
  • Private guided visit of the Chateau de Versailles
  • Additional special Parisian monument/must see visits
  • Visit to the Ateliers de Lumieres– a truly exceptional art/light/music show with changing artists every year.
  • Beer Hunting at some of Paris’ awesome Craft Beer Bars, i.e. Hoppy Corner, La Robe et La Mousse, Atalante


  • Private visits and tastings in some of the Grand Cognac houses, i.e Remy Martin and Hennessey as well as special visits to smaller family owned distilleries.
  • Private Cognac Master Class with a local specialist.
  • Private Visit to a Tonnellerie (Cooperage) to see how the barrels used for our delicious beverages are painstakingly made and why they are so expensive!


  • Visit to the Cite du Vin
  • Visit to the Charming medieval village of St. Emilion, a Unesco World Heritage Site
  • Visits and tastings of delicious Bordeaux wines from vineyards on both banks of the Garonne River
  • optional beer hunting in Bordeaux for those that want to keep the beer flowing even after the wine

As always, we have arranged for private VIP tours and tastings, great local guides, daily breakfasts, some amazing dinners including a multi-course gourmet dinner cruise on the Seine and a dinner at our inn overlooking the vineyards of Cognac. There will be 5 dinners and 4 lunches, leaving you a few opportunities for you to explore the local culinary offerings on your own, as well.

There will be some special pairing experiences, including a beer paired meal at La Fine Mousse Restaurant in Paris and some surprising Cognac pairings as well!

This tour will be run on land, moving properties only twice, so that we have time to experience each of these 3 distinct areas like locals, but spend minimal time packing/unpacking. The dates run through the last week of August so that the vineyards are lush and we are able to take advantage of Labor Day weekend, allowing us to end our tour on Monday morning to fly home without taking an additional day off of work (-that is, if you are not lucky enough to be a full time traveler).

Please Note: This tour will be limited to a maximum of 14 guests.
