France serves up a rich tapestry of fine culture, sublime cuisine, dramatic natural beauty, thundering history, jaw-dropping art, and an undeniable joie de vivre. Take it from our tour members: Each of our tours in France comes filled with unforgettable experiences…
"Staying on Mont St-Michel was simply amazing! I can't imagine just being a day tourist to this historical and idyllic spot. Walking the tiny and twisting cobblestone streets and ramparts, especially at night and in the early morning mist before morning prayers, was magical!"
"Seeing the Eiffel Tower in all her glory, lit up at night, the first evening of our tour! The wow moments continued throughout the week with the Arc de Triomphe, Champs Elysees, Montmartre, Sacre Coeur, Norte Dame, the Louvre, Versailles, the Orsay, the Rodin, Napoleon's Tomb — all wow, wow, wow moments."
— Joanne, Best of Paris in 7 Days Tour
"Canoeing down the Dordogne was an experience that I will never forget! The weather was perfect and the coastal and château views were absolutely gorgeous. It was fun doing an active activity in the middle of the tour with our guide and the other tour members."
"The entire day at Domaine de Mourchon epitomized everything I had hoped that France would be — congenial hosts, perfect weather, active harvesting as we visited the vineyards, the wine tasting that gave us a renewed appreciation for French wines, and the picnic lunch on the grounds, and stunning scenery everywhere!"
"My favorite moment was a bike ride in beautiful Annecy near the French Alps. It was a glorious day, and the aquamarine water and mountain peaks around Annecy made it very special. The farewell dinner was once again a favorite Rick Steves moment, really capping off an excellent trip. Merci beaucoup."
