Jack Dancy and Simon Aplin

TRUSTED TRAVEL EXPERTS France

Brits who live in Burgundy’s ancient wine capital of Beaune, Jack (who is the co-founder of Trufflepig) and his colleague Simon Aplin (who heads up Trufflepig’s France trip-planning division) help independent travelers experience the best of what’s off the beaten track in France and beyond. Their fingers are on the pulse of what’s new and exciting yet still under the radar, as well as what’s old and magically atmospheric that most travelers miss. They expertly tailor itineraries to your particular tastes and interests, whether those include wine tasting in Burgundy, chateau-hopping in the Loire Valley, hiking in the Dordogne, or road tripping through all of it—and then on into Belgium, the Netherlands, and Germany. They’ll ensure that you stick to the most scenic roads, sleep in the most charming and unusual accommodations, dine in the most authentic local eateries, and meet interesting people along the way. Simon used to run a French ski lodge, so he’s got great contacts in the French and Swiss Alps too. And they both have kids, so they know first-hand how to tailor itineraries to families’ needs. Jack was also included in Perrin’s People, Wendy’s award-winning list of top travel specialists, which was published annually in Condé Nast Traveler magazine from 2000 to 2013.
