Nothing beats the relaxation of river cruising, especially when
it is through the romantic country of France. Great Rail Journeys
have a fine selection of boat tours in France and you can choose to
cruise the Seine or the Rhone, docking at charming riverside towns
along the way. In each place you have the opportunity to join one
of the exciting shore excursions. They are a fantastic way of
seeing the main sights and you can leave all the arrangements in
the capable hands of your professional Tour Manager who accompanies
you for the duration of cruises in France.
Alternatively you can go ashore by yourself and spend your time
as you wish, perhaps visiting museums and galleries or simply
enjoying the delicious French cuisine in one of the many cafés.
When you cruise the Seine your elegantly appointed ship becomes
your floating hotel for the week, making it easier to see so much
of this exquisite country in one holiday. Perhaps the highlight of
a Seine cruise is an evening voyage through the heart of Paris. As
the sun begins to set, enjoy views of the famous sights along the
banks of the river for a truly romantic experience.
