Before heading out for a day of sightseeing, enjoy complimentary buffet breakfast at your hotel.

A delectable culinary adventure can be had on a Bordeaux wine country tour. This Globus vacation starts off with two nights in Paris, where you will be treated to a welcome dinner at a local restaurant and then given a guided city tour the following day with a visit to Le Cordon Bleu Cooking School for a demonstration and tasting.
Next, you’ll hop aboard a high-speed TGV train en route to the picturesque Bordeaux wine region where you’ll have lunch and enjoy a wine tasting in St. Emillion. Other tour highlights include two nights in Lourdes, a special pâté tasting in the town of Carcassone, and local meals in Nîmes and Cannes, Avignon and Monte Carlo. Departures are available through October, but tend to sell out quickly. Be sure to book soon for best availability.
Based on double occupancy. Taxes and fees are additional.
Neither one of these tours lies off the beaten path. Expect lines at some attractions, especially during the high season of summer.
