Enjoyed this trip more than I expected. I had googled Dijon and thought it was a busy modern place but in fact it was medieval and interesting. our tour guide Héléne was very good and efficient and our driver Marie-Angelique was superb. We couldn't believe she had only had her qualifications for less than a year. we all commented on how safe we felt with her. Good holiday
An interesting and most enjoyable holiday. Terry, our Tour Manager, was knowledgeable, efficient and helpful. Hotel room facilities good. Lauren, coach driver in Dijon area, skilful and helpful. Roomy and comfortable coach. Can't fault the holiday at all, (just wish French stations provided more luggage trolleys!)
