French Waterways

2014 Prices From $4,590 for 10 Days - Tauck Cruising

When it comes to France cruises, it’s hard to imagine a more enjoyable one than gliding along the Rhône through the vineyard country from which come some of the world’s most exceptional wines. But first, spend two nights at the Hilton Arc de Triomphe Paris, and perhaps discover things you don’t yet know about the "City of Light." After riding the high-speed TGV through the French countryside to Lyon, embark the newly refurbished ms Swiss Emerald to begin this crème de la crème of France cruises, as centuries-old towns, each with its own unique personality, compete for your attention... with private wine tastings at the source in Beaujolais and Châteaneuf-du-Pape... a tasting experience in Lyon’s historic indoor food market... a cooking demonstration and wine and cheese tasting at a cooking school owned by an award-winning chef... dinner overlooking the Pont du Gard... and so much more!
