Book your 2020 barge cruise

To take advantage of the best of the weather, our 2020 season will run from 6 May to 17 October.  The calendar below indicates when the barge is available.

If possible we strongly recommend starting your cruise on a Wednesday - this is because it puts us in a convenient location for some excursions that can only happen on a specific day (eg the big Saturday morning food market or the candlelight evening at Chateau Vaux Le Vicomte).  However if your other travel plans mean you need to choose another date we are happy to accommodate this.  We cruise Eastbound and Westbound on alternating weeks - click on any Wednesday to see which direction the barge is travelling that week.

To book your barge cruise all you need do is send us an email - if you need we can hold your preferred dates for up to 10 days while you organise the rest of your travel plans.
