From the cosmopolitan capitals of Amsterdam and Brussels to the small Champagne towns, this region delights at every turn.

As the home of some of the finest cuisine in the world it is unsurprising that our guests choose to discover as much as possible during meal times. We take great pains to ensure that our tours offer a wide and varied selection of the best gastronomy but should you choose to depart from our suggested itinerary of eateries your tour manager will be able to provide you with a list of alternatives. From the Michelin starred haute cuisine at Le Pont de l'Ouysse in the Dordogne, to simple peasant fare eaten on rough wooden picnic tables, some of France's best sights can be found over the dinner table.
