Last week, we announced our Great Bordeaux Tour 2021 will take place 1 to 4 November.
I am equally delighted to now inform, a few days before that, there will also be our Great Champagne Tour 27 – 29 October 2021.
We will be visiting:
Champagne Louis Roederer
Champagne Veuve Clicquot
Their brochures will appear Monday 5 July 2021.
Each tour has only 8 places.

WHY NO CANCELLATION ALLOWED
Once a participant registers, he/she will have to front up 50% of the tour price no later than 31 July 2021.
No cancellation is allowed after this.
Except if France bars vaccinated travellers from Singapore to the country. In which case there will be a refund. Otherwise, no cancellation also means no refund.
I hope you don’t think it unreasonable for not allowing cancellation.
Most of you have to plan months ahead for such a trip even before Covid further complicated our lives.
If we were to allow cancellation after a person has reserved his/her place, when they cancel, it may be too late to recruit a new participant.
Not only won’t we be able to fill the vacancy, we would also be incurring expenses for transportation/meals/accommodation guaranteed in advance.
I sincerely hope you understand the conditions we operate under.
Wishing you A Very Good Weekend.
