Don’t just visit. Live it.

The French have a phrase we take as our motto: Joie de Vivre — living life to the fullest. Use your senses to experience another culture from the inside out.  From art to culture to dining, Seapowet Educational Tours (SET) provides a completely curated experience. Learn about architecture then witness theory in action via breathtaking castles and cathedrals. Participate in a cooking class and then taste a new take on a classic cuisine. Study the vocabulary of vineyards in the morning and converse over flights of chardonnay in the afternoon.


Our days start with personalized instruction preparing for the day's visits and adventures. We mix structured lessons and spontaneous exploration.
