Bourgogne Evasion, Bike and Wine Tours
Guided and self-guided Cycle and Walking Tours in the Burgundy Vineyards
Experience the famous vineyards of Burgundy at first-hand on foot or by bike with the guides at Bourgogne Evasion, Bike and Wine Tours. There is always activity among the vines as the wine growers of the region nurture their land throughout the year to achieve a top crop of high quality grapes - for them, this is both a passion and a vocation. Now a UNESCO Heritage Site, from this immaculately kept terrain come some of the best wines in the world from Gevrey-Chambertin to Puligny Montrachet. What better way to enjoy the area than a leisurely bike ride or gentle walk, combined with a glass of wine on the very spot where it was made?
guided Half day Cycle tour
Locally born Florian Garcenot from Rully is your English-speaking guide providing all the insider information. You will be taken on an easy 12-15 km circuit to the very heart of Burgundy taking in names such as Pommard, Volnay and Meursault, past châteaux and through picturesque villages. You will visit a local producer and enjoy a tasting of three or four wines. Departs from your hotel on a private tour or from the entrance of Parc de la Bouzaise in Beaune, 39 euros per person, all inclusive.
guided One day tour
Covering 25 km, you will first be taken to a hilltop for the briefing before setting off. A visit to one of the most beautiful châteaux in Burgundy, Château de Rochepot is included, plus an authentic French lunch in a small, friendly restaurant in the Haute Côte de Beaune. Luckily, the road is mainly downhill - you will visit a local producer to taste three or four wines en route. Departs from the Beaune Tourist Office at 9.30, returning at 17.00. 137 euros per person all inclusive.
