Context

An American agency contacted us to create a cross-regional luxury gourmet tour in France for their clients with a strong focus on cheese. They were all foodies and expected to taste as many cheeses’ varieties as possible!

They wanted to start with Paris and nearby areas renowned for cheeses. We then suggested them to go to Lyon for its outstanding gastronomy and wine culture, and finally to have a proper Auvergne food tour: a lesser known area offering stunning landscapes and some of the best cheeses of the country. The “Cheese Route” there, mostly renowned by locals, also caught their attention.

We searched for weeks for the most authentic farms and cheese producers in order to offer a complete gastronomic and cultural experience for the most irresistible trip!

Clients reviews

Marie Tesson had created for us in November 2017 a tailor made journey around vineyard in the Burgundy region. Our clients from different cultures and backgrounds but all of them with high expectations were absolutely delighted. Ms. Tesson did a great job, her knowledge, her skills and her capacity to listen and to adapt were key factors for the success of our journey. I highly recommend Ms. Tesson to any client who wishes a high quality event.
Hi Marie, We had a delightful time! Thank you very much for designing a great tour. We particularly enjoyed the olive oil tour/tasting, truffle hunting, and cooking class. Thibault was a fantastic tour guide, too. I particularly appreciated his flexibility and patience with us. (…) Again, we had a lovely time and appreciate your effort for making our vacation great. I already miss Provence!
Highly recommend. I am not easily impressed, but Marie managed the impossible throughout our entire Champagne experience. She was able to secure private and exclusive access to prestigious houses, which is a privilege reserved only for major distributors and celebrities. Each visit was unique, exclusive, educational and delicious. Looking forward to working with her to explore the rest of France.
