and enter destinations such as Paris to Avignon. Keep in mind there are two train stations: One is the Gare de Lyon ( inside Paris) and one is at the CDG Airport (outside Paris). We recommend you stay an extra day or so AFTER our tour for better train/flight connections. Last time we checked it was not possible to make reservations more than 60 days prior to departure. Travel time between Paris and Avignon is around 3 hours. See Rail Europe's home page at: Rail Europe
Tip: Keep in mind that you are within a 8 - 10 minute walking distance from your lodging to the center of Gordes. This is important for access to restaurants, post office and shopping. Some stores are closed on Mondays and some on Sundays, it' France. Some restaurants are are just a few minutes walk from your lodging, but you need to explore to find what you want. Also, for dinner, restaurants don't open until 7:30 PM.
France is a foreign country and schedules are not the same.
Also see: Special fares such as "Any 3 days unlimited train travel in a 1 month period", (Fares that offer better deals than just two-way/two-day travel for a few dollars more).

For longer tours we think our price is very competitive even somewhat lower than most when you consider the cost of 7 nights lodging with breakfast and meals with wine. See what our price includes under Price and Dates.
Many people ask us who we would recommend for travel insurance. We think Travel Guard is a good one. You can ask your travel agent to set you up with travel insurance or you can contact Travel Guard and they can help you.
30 days before the first tour of the season we will be providing you with an important "TIP SHEET" with travel information which will also include contact phone numbers and Lodging address.
