Beyond Tourism Travel specialises in escorted, small group tours to Paris and Regional France.
Stay in quality hotel or apartment accommodation and participate in a program of Day Tours with planned leisure time to follow up your own interests. The Excursions focus on Sightseeing, History, Food, Art and Local Culture and are conducted in a small group setting with a convivial atmosphere where participants can enjoy places of interest and good food, in the company of like-minded people.
Booking are now being taken for 2013. The following Programs will be available:
- 10 Days in Provence
- 10 Days in Paris & Ile de France
- 10 Days in Normandy & Brittany
- 10 Days in the Dordogne
The tours follow on from each other so that you can participate in more than one. Please note that in the 2013 Spring period, the Normandy and Brittany tour finishes on May 16 and the Dordogne tour does not start till May 18. For those people combining the two tours it is planned that the group travel back to Paris on the TGV train and spend 2 nights there. The Dordogne tour would then begin from Paris on May 18. These arrangements minimise long journeys in a single day and optimise the amount of time for sightseeing and excursions in each region. Reasonably priced accommodation will be available in Paris for the 2 night interim stay. The same arrangements are in place for the Autumn tours later in the year.
To enrich your travel experience three hours of complimentary French lessons are available, at beginner or intermediate level, with all tour bookings.

"What a great holiday! You have shown us a side of Avignon and the surrounding countryside that could not have been easily seen by ourselves and by the end we felt like locals!"
"I really enjoyed all our outings on the Paris and Ile de France tour. There was such an interesting range of activities on offer and it was great being able to cook in the apartment, from the great range of food on offer at the markets. I look forward to touring France another time with Beyond Tourism Travel and I shall certainly tell my friends as well."
"The Provence itinerary was crafted to make each outing memorable and with the Paris and Ile de France program, I loved the balance between the city days and the days in the country. The day at the farm in particular was superb."
"Thanks for the wonderful time and for taking care of us so attentively in Provence. The guides local knowledge was particularly helpful with the dental emergency. The company of the group really added to the enjoyment of the places that we visited and we are looking forward to seeing everyone again at our reunion in June."
"I have just returned to Sydney after my third Paris adventure with Beyond Tourism Travel. I'll be going again next year as there always wonderful things for us to see. As a healthy, inquisitive lover of beauty in my 60's, it is perfect as I have company every second day and the other days I can do my own thing, and that suits me fine. I intend going to the most beautiful city in the world every year for as long as I can! "
