France: Town and Country (8 nights/9 days) FlexiGroup

E-mail Print

Because France is not just Paris, after-all !

This is a unique tour where the chic meets countryside (minus its usual rigidity). This tour is only for singles, couples and group of friends (no kids). It takes you from the French chic to the rustic countryside in 10 days.

In keeping with the backpacking-explorer spirit, we ensure that we take you beyond the typical touristy destinations. We use central budget 2-3* hotels and ensure that time (& money) is better spent on sightseeing and experiencing the local culture.
