2014 - Guided Burgundy: Best of Medieval Burgundy

"Everything was excellent! We enjoyed very much talking to our hosts and meeting a Russian lady who was so charming, sitting in her garden for meals was a delight. The final 2 days we opted out of walking she kindly gave us picnics there as well." E & F Floyd, UK (2 centre version of holiday)


"I just wanted to thank you again for such a great walking trip that you put together for us this past September. I am still basking in the memories. I hung the map up so I can recall the trip every day, and I’ve been telling all my friends about it." D Streeter, USA (read more on her blog: On the Road Again.)

"I thought the choice of accommodation was brilliant with each property ofering high levels of hospitality but all so different too." T. Whitehouse, UK

"Amazing choice of guest houses. We enjoyed staying at such varied guest houses & meeting so many friendly people, both the host & hostesses and the fellow guests." B & V Marlow, UK


"It couldn't have been better. A perfect holiday for us - relatively easy walking; lots to see & do (natural history, churches, farms, language, people); eating & chatting with French people a huge plus; lovely food & drink; stress free because planning & payment already settled; very few non-French people around! The short lifts you arranged were a big help. Many thanks again for such a good holiday." J. Kay, UK

"Good paths - excellent instructions. Really like the fact that we do not have to look around to try and find somewhere to get lunch as picnic organised. Lovely walk, met lots of lovely people and had a wonderful time. 2nd trip as good as the 1st. Well done William." J. Symes, UK

2018 - Secret Burgundy: Chardonnay Vines & Historic Villages

" (We enjoyed) the lovely scenery, the gorgeous guest houses and the wonderful people." S&J Allen, Australia (Tailor made version)

"(We enjoyed) the authentic French experience of the accommodation, the active holiday experience and walking with friends." P&M Ashton (Tailor made version)

"We loved staying in the guest houses and this is a point of difference to other French walking holidays we have done. They were diverse and interesting and provided an opportunity to interact with both hosts and other guests in a mixture of English and our basic French. Pierreclos was a pure delight and we were so looking forward to returning at the conclusion of the walk. Food, wine and hospitality was outstanding there as well as in Mazille. The quiet tracks and villages were beautiful. High Point Holidays and Burgundy are highly recommended to other walkers. Thank you very much! " S. Begg, Australia


"Whilst all the hosts were welcoming, those at Pierreclos were exceptional. The food at Ige was exceptional and at Fuisse, the room and character of the building was excellent." B&V Marlow, UK.


"Enjoyed everyday. Guest houses are all superb. Great food. All well planned walking routes and stops, look forward to our next holiday with High Point." G.Davies, UK.

"Ige (was my favourite guest house), the house was very quirky and interesting, the hosts were very friendly and the food was superb." J Peacock, UK.

2017 - Chardonnay Wine Trail

"We enjoyed the variety in the type of guesthouse. The opportunity to chat in French with the owners was a major plus for us." V & N McGill


"I think this holiday has far exceeded our expectations and hope we will return to experience another region of France. Good to be out of the main tourist areas." E Hodgson, UK.

"We did not get lost once and the notes and maps are great (clear and concise). Everyone is so nice around here!!!" R Hodgson, UK


"The most enjoyable walking holiday we have had in France - easy to follow guidance notes, splendid & varied accommodation - a wonderful overall experience. Would not hesitate to recommend to fellow walkers." C & M. Duck, UK

2015 - Medieval Burgundy: The Monk's Trail

"I was impressed from the first moment I walked into my room at Aux Terrasses and got my personal walking notes (with my name on them.) Honestly, you couldn't make this holiday any better. Everything worked smoothly, the guest houses were wonderful, the hosts very welcoming, the paths lead exactly where I was told they were going and routes well thought through with plenty to see along the way. Will definitely book again!" I. Davies, UK.


"The holiday was great because of the excellent itinerary through fabulous countryside and the chambre d'hotes gave us real contact with French people. The opportunity to practice speaking French was an unexpected bonus of the holiday" Mr D Burrows, UK.

"Thank you for organising such an enjoyable and memorable holiday! I very much enjoyed our stay at Messey, Cruzille and Morlay too. The hosts were really welcoming and I shall remember the conversations at the dinner table. I actually attempted to speak in French occasionally too!" Mrs D Burrows, UK

"Having the walks highlighted on the maps was really useful and made it easy to follow. Lengths of walks and variety was great. We had no real complaints and had a really fantastic holiday. Thank you very much, it was great" R Turner & A Mencinskyj, Australia
