    The most relaxing tour I have ever been on. The food was out of this world and plenty of it. Interesting things to do every day if you wanted to see the true France. Was very sad when the week ended. I will definitely take another barge trip in the future.

    We had been to France many times and were looking for something difference. Cruising France's canals on a barge was excellent. I always thought I felt France every time I visited. This was the first time I truly felt I was in France. Highly recommended!
