This is the ultimate private culinary tour of France and Switzerland. It features private touring and tasting in some of the world’s most important wine regions, visits to local food markets and specialty food purveyors, reservations at top restaurants serving authentic regional cuisine, in-depth cultural touring in each destination, and spectacular accommodations, including a palace hotel in Paris, a historic chateau in Beaujolais and a luxury resort on Lake Geneva.

Begin with three nights in Paris. With your sophisticated expert guide, enjoy a private culinary tour of the city. Experience epicurean delights at local markets, pastry shops, cheese shops, chocolate stores, tea salons and more. Shop for specialty kitchen utensils, fine tableware and upscale table linens at leading French retailers. Also enjoy private touring of top cultural attractions according to your interests, such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral and more. In the evenings, reservations will be made for you at favorite neighborhood bistros, refined brasseries and fine-dining restaurants serving traditional French haute cuisine and innovative contemporary gastronomy.

Continue to the Champagne wine region. Drive through vineyards along the Route du Champagne, stopping to visit the most interesting wine cellars and sample top local vintages. With your private guide, enjoy a tour of Reims, an ancient city with Roman roots. Visit highlights such as Notre-Dame Cathedral, a masterpiece of Gothic Art and a UNESCO World Heritage Site where 25 French kings and queens had their coronations. Also, see Art Deco architecture and browse specialty shops selling chocolates and biscuits roses de Reims, the town’s famous pink cookies.

Next, visit charming Beaune, the capital of the Burgundy wine country. Enjoy a private tour of the Burgundy wine route through the Cote d’Or vineyards, visiting local cellars to sample the best of Bourgogne. Also, explore the well-preserved medieval center of Beaune, browse the local market, and perhaps purchase renowned local wines such as Chambertin, Romanee-Conti and Montrachet. Time permitting, also visit Dijon, famous for its mustard and other fine culinary offerings.

Next, transfer to the Beaujolais wine region just outside Lyon and stay at the spectacular Chateau de Bagnols, a meticulously restored 13th-century castle filled with antique furniture, wall paintings and Gothic fireplaces. Enjoy a private tour of the surrounding vineyards, wine cellars and ancient villages. One day, enjoy a private excursion to Lyon, the gastronomic capital of France, to explore local culinary traditions, see cultural highlights such as Roman ruins, churches and museums, and perhaps dine at one of the country’s best restaurants.

Continue to Lausanne, Switzerland’s gourmet paradise, in the beautiful Lake Geneva region. Stay at the elegant Beau-Rivage Palace—one of the best luxury hotels in Switzerland—among lush parkland on the shore of the lake. One day, take a private excursion in the surrounding region to visit Chateau de Chillon, Switzerland’s most interesting castle, and the Lavaux wine region, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of 800-year-old terraced vineyards that skirt the edge of Lake Geneva and offer dramatic views of the Alps. Artisans of Leisure will arrange for you to enjoy exclusive activities such as private wine tasting and a private chocolate making experience at a local confectioner. Another day, enjoy a private excursion to Gruyeres, an atmospheric medieval hill town. Tour a cheese-making facility and taste local cheeses, including the region’s renowned Gruyere cheese. Also, enjoy reservations for a fondue or raclette lunch at one of our favorite local restaurants. Other options include touring a renowned chocolate factory; visiting Chaplin’s World, the former house and estate of Charlie Chaplin; exploring the Olympic Museum or the historic center of Lausanne; or spending time at the hotel’s excellent spa, restaurants and leisure facilities.
