10 Day Gastronomic Journey of France
"French cuisine" has no precise definition - its ingredients and flavors are as varied and unique as the regions that have birthed them - which is exactly why France remains the true gastronome's first love. The national menu is as extensive as it is exquisite. With its romantic allure, dozens of markets overflowing with produce from the country's four corners and over 130 Michelin stars spread among its 9,000 restaurants, Paris boasts more than enough variety to keep even the most discerning foodie occupied for several lifetimes. But there's more beyond the big city; easygoing Beaune captivates wine lovers with its dry reds and flinty whites, and Lyon's lively bouchons serve up hearty fare and friendly atmosphere. This premium gastro-centric tour offers a chef's selection of all three.

It begins in Paris with a visit to a Montmartre market with an expert chef to shop for ingredients you'll use later at a cooking class, followed by dinner atop the Eiffel Tower and an exclusive wine tasting in the 17th-century cellar of a local collector. From there, head to Beaune, a charming walled town distinguished by its diverse array of pre-Roman, medieval, and Renaissance architecture. Here, you'll take a privately guided walking tour, a hands-on cooking lesson, a seven-course lunch and artisanal cheese tastings before spending an entire day sampling the vintages (including a pair of Grand Crus) on a private tour through the cellars of the famous Wine Route. Last stop: Lyon, the ancestral home of French cuisine, where you'll be treated to a half-day walking tour around the UNESCO-protected town, take a chef-led cooking class, and enjoy an exclusive wine tasting at Côtes du Rhône.

Kensington Tours creates private trips from the world's finest ingredients. Tailor-made with care by your personal Destination Expert, your personalized trip is always a one-of-a-kind experience made just for you. Expert local guidance and 24/7 service come standard.
