2014 Prices From $5,990 for 14 Days - Tauck Cruising

On one of the most enjoyable France river cruises you could imagine, journey from the jet-setting capital of Monte-Carlo into Provence to Arles to board ms Swiss Emerald for a cruise along the Rhône River to Lyon and then along the Saône. Travel into the countryside past vineyards where some of the world’s best grapes become some of the world’s best wines, stopping to taste some of them. Discover river towns with Roman roots and lingering traces of medieval magic in their streets, experience the cowboy traditions and cuisine of La Camargue, and sample the pleasures of regional cuisine and wine throughout your trip. Explore a palace fit for a pope and an abbey that was once one of the most powerful in Europe. You'll find something new, something wonderful every day. And during two nights in Paris, you'll dine at chic Fouquet's on the Champs-Élysées!

The Tauck Difference

My wife and I took the last river cruise of the year. Every aspect was organized and handled efficiently. The Tauck Cruise Director and Tauck Directors were the most professional travel directors we have ever experienced. No one could surpass the professionalism, knowledge, diligence and interest of these four individuals.
