June 3rd – June 13th, 2023

Join us as we return to France for the 2023 24 Hours of Le Mans race.  Here is the chance to see Corvette Racing against the world’s best GT cars in the most famous race of all. Just a few highlights of the tour include stops in Paris, Normandy, and of course Le Circuit de la Sarthe (Le Mans Track). We will have professional guides with us during the entire trip to assist with our travels. After four nights in Paris, we will spend two nights in Normandy before we travel to Angers where we will stay throughout the Le Mans race.

The next three days will have us visiting the Le Circuit de la Sarthe (Le Mans track) as well as the town. Monday, we depart Angers and travel back to Paris for one last free day. Check out of our hotel and continue with your plans of either more travel or to the airport.  Hotels, ground transportation, tour tickets, all breakfasts, some meals, Le Mans general admission race tickets, and Corral tickets are included.  We have a very limited number of openings so make your plans early to join us in making memories, new friends, and seeing beautiful France.
