All the cabins on the boat, although configured differently, were all equally decorated and comfortable. The service on the boat was wonderful. Everyone was kind and absolutely delightful to be around. We felt as though we were with family. Every meal was a delight for all the senses. Our excursions were designed to enhance our appreciation and understanding of the region. But as active as we were, we never felt pressured or exhausted. The high points were: the staff and owner - wonderful people. The boat is very nicely designed. Less formal than other barges we've been on, which was nice (very relaxing). High points were: walking all over the Pont du Gard, all the meals on board, Jim's cooking lessons, Chateauneuf, the Camargue ranch. The weather was ideal (not hot nor cold), the region was a favorite of ours, and we were looking forward to this trip for a year. It could have not gone better. Highly recommend this trip.

It was the highlight of our 4 1/2 weeks in southern France and NE Spain. We have always been independent travelers, non-tour, so weren't sure how we would like it. But it exceeded all our expectations. All our needs and wishes were met and exceeded. Every single member of the crew was unfailingly and sincerely pleasant, good at his/her job, and went above and beyond the call of duty. Michel's knowledge of the area and how to get things done there is amazing. The meals and wines were incredible. It was so fun to know that what we were eating and drinking was local to our mooring area. The Camargue is an area we had never visited as it's not easy to see it by public transportation. This was the perfect way to do it. It was not a busy route, so was tranquil, relaxing, and very beautiful. The locks, bridges, and water birds all added to the enjoyment.

We had a wonderful trip. The boat was immaculate, the food tasty and ample, the service impeccable, the tours interesting and informative. The high points were 'Foie gras night', swimming next to the Pont du Gard, Les Baux (a medieval town/fortress). Really, it is hard to pick one or two things. My husband enjoyed the lovely tour guide in the Papal Palace at Avignon quietly demonstrating the acoustics of the chapel by singing the Agnus Dei in her silvery voice. Others loved the ranch and its owners, right out of central casting.

The excursions were excellent. I really appreciated having professional tour guides. All but one were easy to understand; all were knowledgeable and receptive to questions. The tablet tour of the Popes Palace in Avignon was an exception. I would have much preferred a guided tour. Thank you for all your efforts on our behalf. I thought the pre-trip organization was excellent and the written information included in our cruise package was very useful and informative.
