The tour will be hosted by Chicago area wine expert, Jim Bryant and escorted by Greg Pearson of Travelex, International.
Each morning, your luxury hotel barge gets underway for the day’s cruise. As it navigates the frequent locks on the canal, it is easy to step directly ashore for a leisurely stroll.
During the day, you are invited to join an excursion via private motorcoach to a nearby point of special interest. Each itinerary has been selected to include a varied sampling of the region…romantic castles, historic towns, and renowned vineyards for wine tasting. At certain châteaux and estates, your tour will be conducted by the owner, whose family has been in residence for generations.
