Perpignan : Stag Destination

Friday morning, I went to my hotel in Perpignan to collect my group of 10 lads on tour - with Ed, the groom to be dressed up as Frodo from Lord of the Rings, I knew we were in for an interesting weekend!

Day one, Friday , we headed off bright and early for our Red Beret Wine Tour and visited three very different vineyards.
The boys had a great laugh and even learnt some interesting wine facts from our genial hosts along the way.
We finished up our day at a gorgeous chateau, overlooking the med, where the gorgeous female owner treated the boys to some tasty apperitifs overlooking the vines.
Back, we trekked to Perpignan where the boys tasted the nightlife , hopping from bar to bar and limped home in the wee hours...

Day two, we took the London boys on an adventure tour where they tried out tubbing, canyoning and rapid water canoe-ing. They soon got over their hangovers as they were dunked in the freezing waters!
We were very well looked after by French hosts , Victor and Pierre and will be adding this tour to our itineraries for sure..
Another night on the town for the lads on Saturday night as they partied the night away...

Sunday was an absolutely glorious day and the band of party animals took themselves off to the beach where they soaked up the rays and tried some of the trendy bars in Canet , just a short hop from their base in Perpignan.

Best of luck Ed ( Frodo) on your upcoming nuptials from the French Tour Co team xxxx
