traveller reviews

  • I thoroughly enjoyed the holiday and the food & cycling were excellent. The hosts on the barge are slightly eccentric. I had some wonderful memories, like completing 60k! I never cycled 60k before! I would not hesitate to recommend it to a friend. B. Perry, UK
  • Our Taste of Burgundy bike and barge tour on the Anna Maria V was fantastic. Our tour guide, Kris, was kind, helpful and made every participant feel welcomed. His local knowledge was excellent. The food was delicious. Great trip! A Wright Wollongong, Australia
  • We had the best time! It was a wonderful holiday, different to anything we'd done before. Bike riding through French villages and eating French Pastries was an amazing experience.

Nuttall NSW, Australia

Enjoy the charm of Burgundy's rolling landscape as you cycle along quiet country roads and canal ways, passing world famous vineyards and charming old towns where there is plenty of time set aside for discovering the cultural and consumable delights the region offers. By night retire to our private barge custom built for cruising on the French canals. The relaxed atmosphere aboard will quickly make you feel at home as will the simple cabins, which have private facilities. Wine tasting, exploring the impressive towns of Dijon and Beaune, and visiting castles, museums and abbeys are some of the highlights of this insightful trip, which combined with the experience of cycling through the changing scenery, make this an ideal way to explore Burgundy.
