The popularity of Beaune means LOTS of tourists. But you can explore Beaune early in the morning or during the late afternoon and evening, when the bus tours are not in town. And during your half-day tour from Beaune, you will be out in the countryside when that town is busy with visitors.
Dijon is by far the less touristy of the two places to stay. Actually, Dijon is not touristy in the least. Being a city, it lacks the kind of charm that attracts so many people to Beaune, but it has plenty to offer in its fine old town center.
Dijon is better located for visiting…the scenic countryside and small towns in the area of the Burgundy canal. You can do a fine combination tour from Dijon which divides the emphasis between wine and scenic touring.
Beaune is better situated for those whose interest is overwhelmingly on the wines.
With less time available, you can stay at one or the other, Dijon or Beaune. You can also do one Burgundy tour instead of two.
Your Burgundy tour can be set up as a private one, instead of as part of a small-group. That costs substantially more, but it also puts you in control of both the pace and the emphasis.
