Taking a leisurely cruise on a hidden canal in France has caught the imagination of many travelers, even the most jaded. It’s no surprise given that passengers experience an intimate view of the charming French countryside, spend elegant evenings dining on gourmet meals, are pampered with excellent service and are offered interesting things to do ashore. This June, an exclusive Connecticut Tour Operator Tours of Distinction is offering a very special cruise of the hidden canals of the Loire Valley from June 26- July 4 on a twenty passenger canal barge.
About Barge Cruising in the Loire Valley
Navigating through centuries-old waterways in the heart of the Loire Valley on a slow-moving barge with no more than twenty guests is a completely different experience from other river cruises where passengers share space with more than 100 people and sail on crowded rivers through several countries. Barge cruising in France with Tours of Distinction is intimate, slower, and smaller giving passengers the time to experience this network of waterways that crisscross the Loire Valley.
The scenery is diverse and has been cherished by residents and visitors alike.
