Travel with us on Your Key to Burgundy Escorted Journeys…
Those traveling on YK2B Escorted Journeys want more than just a trip. They want to learn, to explore, and to understand. In this spirit, every one of our guided excursions includes the following components:
- Subject matter specialists: Meet and travel with chefs, artists, historians, and – of course! – wine specialists, who will share their experience and engage your curiosity.
- Small group experiences: Leave the crowds behind and travel with four to ten others who share your interests.
- Destinations that tell a story: Visit the unique, the culturally rich, and the out-of-the way places that tourists would never find.
- Exclusive access: Experience behind-the-scenes visits to sites and join informal gatherings with locals.
- Pre-excursion preparation: Enjoy an extended relationship in which YK2B offers routine advance planning information, as well as interesting videos and information to help you make the most of your time in Burgundy.
And, in addition to Your Key to Burgundy’s publicly-offered excursions, we can custom-design one just for your group, focused on your specific interests.

- “The Best of Burgundy” – Join us as we explore the wine and history of Burgundy’s legendary wine-growing regions, from Chablis in the north, to the Mâconnais in the south. This is now an “On Demand” excursion, with dates to be scheduled according to the time of year when your group of four to six guests wants to travel!
- And don’t forget our completely customized, themed excursions to Burgundy and beyond… – We are continuing to develop wonderful partnerships with winemakers, chefs, artists, historians, educators, and other professionals, in many disciplines. Come to us with your group of four to six travelers, tell us about your interests, and we will custom-design a themed excursion, just for you!

A wine-lover’s “dream” journey!
From Chablis in the north to the Mâconnais in the south, we will taste our way along Burgundy’s famous “Route des Grands Crus.” Begin with a night in Paris to recover from your flight, then travel to Chablis, and then on to the Burgundy capital of Dijon for a three-night stay. We will conclude with four nights in Beaune, the town that is the “heart beat” of the Burgundy wine culture. Explore with us the richness of the region, including wine history dating back more than 2,000 years. Visits to towns, villages, and historic sites will reveal the story of how Burgundy came to be the most celebrated wine-growing region and culinary capitol of the world.
This excursion is ideal for wine, food, and history lovers!
“Women in Burgundy 2023” was a Wander-ful Success!

Ten nights – Limited to six fun-loving, “Wander-ful Women”
Price per guest: $6,550, single occupancy (or, “travel with a buddy” for $5,750, double occupancy, for a savings of $800 per guest)
An Adventure For Women, About Women!
Carolyn will introduce our group of “Wander-ful” adventurers to women who have played extraordinary roles over the course of Burgundy’s history. From the mysterious Goddess of the river Seine, to a noblewoman in the middle ages with a vision for a hospital to serve the poor, women have for centuries played key roles in the evolution of this beautiful region. This proud tradition continues with the trailblazing women of today, including winemakers, business owners, and others serving in important roles in their communities. Experience the culture, history, cuisine, and wine as we browse local markets, visit inspiring sites, stroll in the golden vineyards, and meet passionate locals who share a zest for life!
