After having won a tender made by the “Bourgogne Tourisme”, our challenge was to convince within 36 hours the public relations directors of the 30 top companies in France that Burgundy was a major place to welcome high quality events. The contrasting concept was to astonish Public Relations Directors who have already seen so much in their career that Burgundy is a fascinating region where events could take place.All the scenes were inspired by the Grande Vadrouille (literally “The Great Stroll”). This comedy is about two ordinary Frenchmen, during the WWII, helping the crew of a Royal Air Force bomber shot down over Paris to make their way through German occupied France to escape arrest.

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.
