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.

Join us on this wine-lover’s “dream” journey, during the most colorful season of the year!
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 spend two nights in the Charming town of Chablis. Then onward to Beaune – our “home base” for seven nights. Explore with us the cultural 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 in the world.
This excursion is ideal for wine lovers and history lovers, alike!
“Joie de Vivre – Celebrating the Joy of Living!”
Our annual excursion designed especially for “wander-ful women.”
Beginning in 2015 with our “Burgundy Treasure Hunt” flea marketing adventure, Carolyn has taken great pleasure in creating and leading unique excursions, designed especially for women. Generally limited to five guests, these trips are for women who appreciate authentic experiences and are ideal for those traveling solo or with a friend. “Joie de Vivre” – the joy of living – is always an underlying theme, with a focus on food, wine, culture, and history, as well as meeting and enjoying the company of other women. Along the way, we will meet French women who are passionate winemakers, business owners, and leaders in their communities – all who share a zest for life!
Our next “Women in Burgundy” excursion will take place in 2021 and is still in the design stage. Contact us to be among the first to learn the details of our next adventure. To see the details from last year’s “Women in Burgundy” excursion, click below.
