Chain Gang Tours In July And August

Last month I shared some information about our tours up to and including our Burgundy tour, July 13th – 20th.  That tour is full, but we’re open for business beyond the 20th – somebody emailed me last month to ask whether we were planning any tours this year after July 20th, I’ll have to be more careful when I blog!

Well, yes we are planning tours beyond the 20th.  We’re back in the Loire Valley, we have our first wine-tasting tour of the summer in Bordeaux, starting on July 27th, and between then and the end of August we’re all over France, in the Dordogne, Provence, Burgundy, Normandy, and finally back to Bordeaux on August 24th.  Yes, we will have tours in September (!), but more about them next month.

I’ve collected together some useful links below, videos, photo galleries, detailed maps, itineraries. I hope they’ll whet your appetite, but enjoy them anyway.
