France River Cruises

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.

The Waterways of Alsace and Lorraine by Barge

Mr A Gander
5 stars
“An excellent holiday in terms of restfullness, good food and wine, plus some very interesting visits.

Mr M Taylor
5 stars
“The standard of accommodation, staff and food on the barge was outstanding. Nothing too much trouble and the team made the whole experience a first class holiday. However... the coach journey from Gard du Nord to meeting the barge took over 4.5 hrs. Just getting out of, and back into, Paris took over 2 hours. This was an extremely long and tiresome journey meaning that we didn't get to the barge until after 2030 hrs.

Experience a Seine Cruise

Take the Eurostar from London to Paris before transferring to your ship where you will be met with a warm welcome and a lovely glass of bubbling champagne. All of your meals during a cruise on the Seine are included within the price of your holiday and dinner is accompanied by a selection of fine wines. Enjoy excellent French cuisine and delicious regional delicacies that are freshly prepared by skilled on-board chefs. When you are not discovering architectural gems and historical wonders of the riverside towns visited during a cruise on the Seine, you can relax in the ship's Panorama Lounge and enjoy a drink from the bar as you chat to your fellow guests. Alternatively you can head out on deck and enjoy the comfort of the sun loungers as you watch the picturesque scenery pass by. As you cruise the Seine in the evenings you will be treated to live music and entertainment and there is also a fitness room, Jacuzzi and library on certain ships meaning that you will never experience a dull moment on a Seine cruise. If you would like more time to take in the sights and sounds of Paris, speak to us about extending your holiday with a night or two in a Parisian hotel.
