Once reserved only for royalty, the scenic canals of France now welcome travelers seeking intimate encounters with rural life. Aboard a privately chartered barge, we savor fine French food and wine, and new friends as we leisurely ply the waterways of the Rhone-Rhine and Burgundy canals. Combined with stays in Lyon and Paris, this tour embraces the good life, French style.
Europe of old – and new – springs to life on this relaxed journey through cities rich with art and architecture, vibrant street life, storied surroundings, and prized UNESCO sites. We travel from canal-laced Amsterdam and medieval Bruges to diverse Luxembourg and romantic Paris…in our own moveable feast of culture, cuisine, and comfort.
Experience the beauty, allure, and hospitality of provincial France, at an easy pace and in a unique style. Anchored by stays in vibrant Toulouse and enchanting Paris, the journey features diverse Languedoc, the remote Dordogne, the lovely Loire Valley, and historic Normandy as we stay in charming rural inns and small country hotels. It’s a small group tour de force!
