Join Us on a Cheese-Themed Tour of France!


No one knows the pleasures of the table quite like the French – so where better to satisfy your inner gourmet than on Vision Travel’s Cheese-Themed tour of northern France?

Including a number of cheese, wine and cider tastings, the tour will feature your own Tour Director, your friendly Vision Travel escort travel advisor Eleanor Dath, and sisters/cheese experts Jessi Fournier and Bekki Martin of J’adore Fine Cheese and Chocolate in Barrie, Ontario.

“This custom-made, one-departure-only tour is perfect for anyone who loves history, culture – and of course cheese!” says Dath. Travelling around the northwest corner of France in an extra-legroom Insight Vacation coach equipped with complimentary WiFi, the group will travel to Camembert to visit the Maison de Camembert and Fromagerie Durand followed by a visit to a 17th century cider farm. Onward to Loire Valley, where a local vintner will guide the group through tastings of the region’s delicious wines.  The trip concludes with a stay in Paris where a guided food walk will feature stops in a pastry shop, a bakery, a cheese boutique and chocolate shop.  

And don’t forget your camera as there will be memorable stops at the ancient cathedral of Rouen, the UNESCO World-Heritage offshore island of Mont-Saint-Michel and the stunning walled port of Saint-Malo which dates back over 2000 years. During the course of the tour, you’ll wander along centuries-old cobblestoned streets and past bustling local markets.  And for a very special treat, the group will even stay for two nights in a fairy-tale Chateau de Rochcotte in the Loire Valley. Plus you’ll experience Paris, the City of Lights for a total of three nights.

There’s one departure only of this unforgettable 9-day tour:  October 18-26 this year. Priced at $4,018 Cdn (excluding airfare) it includes all accommodation, daily buffet breakfasts, four dinners (including a Farm-to-Table dinner in Normandy), all tastings and admissions to attractions featured on the itinerary, and transportation in an air-conditioned coach with extra legroom and complimentary WiFi.  And don’t worry, there’s lots of free time for you to explore on your own – and perhaps find even more cheese to sample! Eleanor is also happy to help book your airfare from any city in Canada.

There are only 30 spots on this fabulous tour, and several are already sold.  If you love great food – including of course cheese – please click here or call tour escort and travel advisor Eleanor Dath at 705-984-8328 or email her at [email protected]
