Do you pick us up in Dijon or Beaune, and what time is the pick-up on Sunday?

Also, when and where to you drop us off?
On the Saturday morning Captain Max will drive you back to DIJON for 10:00hrs, no problem if needed earlier!
I will need to arrange train tickets from Paris and stay in the pick-up city for a few days prior.
You can either
Stay a couple days in DIJON, if you decide to stay in DIJON then we will slightly change our program for us to take you on another visit and not return to Dijon, Dijon is a small beautiful City, you will have no trouble filling in a couple of days with the “what to do when in Dijon program”.
stay a few days in Paris before and then take the train Sunday for arrival in DIJON at 16:30hrs, please note many of our clients do this!
Please try and make your way to the DIJON train station for 16:30hrs, that is where we normally pick up our passengers, from there either it will be a 15 minutes drive to the boat or a 45 minutes drive to the boat.
This depends on the alternate direction of the cruise. Either way we will drive you back to the Dijon train station. This is a 15 minute or a 45 minute drive back, it all depends where the boat will be moored up!
Before 10:00hrs, and earlier if you have special travel plans, you just need to let us know.
It is only a 1h45 minute journey on the high-speed train from Dijon to Paris.
During your stay in Burgundy we will visit the city of DIJON, the fresh morning market, mustard and cheese tasting, the medieval streets and much more.
