Off the Beaten Path Tours of France

About Us

Hello and Bonjour!

We are Patrick and Allison. It's a pleasure to meet you!

We over 40 years of experience in the travel and tourism industry. We specialize in providing off-the-beaten-path trips to France for groups and rural study abroad programs. Our team of experts is dedicated to creating unforgettable experiences for our clients, ensuring that every trip is tailored to their unique needs and preferences. Get ready for the journey of a lifetime!


Southern France

When we're not leading our groups around France, we love to take advantage of all the outdoor sports that southern France has to offer. From kayaking to hiking and mountain biking, there's always something exciting to do in this beautiful region. Join us for an adventure you'll never forget!


We love taking groups to the Champagne region, visiting the Champagne houses in Reims and Epernay, including some smaller houses too! Wandering down Rue de Champagne, bike tours in lush vineyards and sipping the finest bubbles that France has to offer, no wonder it's Allison favorite region! 


Brittany (Bretagne)

One of the furthest west destinations in France is Brittany. This region is home to some of the country's most delicious delicacies, including the famous salted butter and pre-salted lamb. As we are adventurous travelers, we couldn't miss out on the guided quicksand tour in Mont St. Michel Bay - it's an experience that all of our groups love! 


Patrick grew up in Paris, so we find ourselves there often, visiting friends and family. When creating group trips we always spend a few free days in Paris, to explore, visit the Eiffel tower, the Louvre and take a boat ride down the Seine. After soaking up all that Paris has to offer, we then venture out to explore the rest of France.
