Welcoming solo travelers from around the world to our small group tours of France!
Are you a solo traveler? Look no further. Our solo travel groups are for you. Travel with like-minded solo travelers to discover the heart and soul of France, enjoying unparalleled camaraderie. From our 6-Day Provence, Loire Valley, and Bordeaux tours to our 4-Day Champagne tours and limited edition tours, we have welcomed solo travelers year after year for nearly thirty years.
As a solo traveler also, I design our exclusive tour itineraries to appeal equally to solo traveler interests. Comprised of half and sometimes entirely by solo travelers, our solo travel groups create an ambiance of conviviality through our personalized and exclusive daily activities and excursions. Each of our solo group tours features active and hands-on excursions. Participate in private cooking classes, winery tours, and tastings walks through vineyards and spectacular countryside, and guided tours of historic castles, villages, towns, artisan markets, Roman ruins, and more.
Indulge in gourmet fare during our group meals together, welcomed not as tourists to our favorite local restaurants and homes of friends but as friends. Our solo travel groups also include free time, which often leads to everyone wanting to hang out for an apero (french cocktail time) at the end of our day, meet up to chat over an impromptu meal together, shop together at our favorite local boutiques for those unique gifts for family and friends, and other extras we may have talked about during a day out. While you might arrive to the tour as a stranger knowing no one, you will leave the trip having forged new friendships.

A WORD FROM Our Guests:
“This was my third trip in the same number of years with Christy and Off the Beaten Path. While on her trips you can tell how much effort there is on the off season to make every single week perfect. From the pick up at the train station to the teary goodbye at the airport, everything is perfectly planned and executed. The hotel in St. Remy is magical, and the tour guides Philippe and David are exceptional. If you are considering a trip with OTBP, go for it and come home with new friends, a love of Provence and a longing to return as soon as you can!” — Beth Bower
“We had an excellent tour with Christie and her crew in the Loire valley. We did things that only a true insider would have access to-dinner at a Michelin chefs house, helping/learning to cook at a highly rated restaurant in their kitchen. This was in addition to seeing the sights and touring the castles. A truly unique experience that is off the beaten path. We will use her again when going back to France.” — Karen Berner
“France Off the Beaten Path was so great the first time that I had to return to Off The Beaten Path for a repeat visit. Everyone that works for Christy is excellent and full of life. Loved their tours to Van Gough, Dinner at Catherine’s home, picnic in the woods, wineries – And the only max at 16. So we really got to know each other. Highly recommend.” — Lauren
“Outstanding tour of truly beautiful areas of Provence by a very friendly and knowledgeable guide who spoke perfect English. Gorgeous accomodation, very special restaurant experiences, and an effort made to avoid arriving at tourist hotspots with the hordes made it all the more enjoyable.” — Geoff & Lorrene Evans
