This was our first bike and barge and we are already planning to go again! The crew was fabulous from the moment we stepped on board, welcoming us and showing us to our cabin. The food was exceptional, with the chef, Frank, explaining each course at dinner. Allergies were meticulously monitored. The guides were knowledgeable and a pleasure to bike with each day. They even showed us around each town in the evenings. Every crew member and all 22 guests were delightful. A truly wonderful experience.

This was a great trip! The crew members were so helpful and very attentive to our needs. We took the Moret-sur-Loing to Auxerre trip. The scenery was very nice and the small towns we visited were very cute. Frank, our chef, made wonderful meals and we never left hungry.

We had a great week traipsing across the French countryside from town to town. Great food, great staff. GPS app was a great help. Bring a bike/phone mount.

The accomodations were 2 star level poor ventilation and air system rooms very damp and cramped. The food was average but their seemed to be an issue with the amount of food available, their seemed to be some kind of rationing with the amount of food available. The staff was luke warm and somewhat blunt and not really accommodating. The bicycle tour was through Burgundy country but very little wine vineyard tours, I think the selection of sites to see during cycling should be reviewed . I would probably lean towards a 2.5 score on this experience. I would not recommend it to others

Food average was average, snacks after bike day were packaged cookies, windows in our cabin looked like they hadn’t be washed, guides sometimes started the tour again before the sweeper was ready, on change over day they were loading the boat again while we were trying to relax(very unprofessional, should have done it when we were out biking), staff was kind and courteous, Meals had a good variety with lots for those with a bigger appetite, felt like we were on a regimented schedule, never knew what time we were getting back to boat at the end of the day, Rooms always felt damp

We had a wonderful week cycling roughly 50km each day in Northern Burgundy and coming ‘home’ each evening to the lovely boat ‘Zwaantje’ and her warm, funny, welcoming and very competent crew. We had two tour guides, professional, knowledgeable, helpful and charming. A tour of Sens cathedral and the inner city was a highlight as were two quite different wine tastings and a cider tasting. Walking tours of the towns where we moored each night were also always most enjoyable. We have no hesitation in recommending this tour.

I had a wonderful experience riding through Northern Burgundy. The rolling hills were challenging sans an E-bike. I choose to spend on day cruising on board and was invited to spend some time with the gracious Captain, Erik. He shared information about the Yonne River and traversing the locks and navigation in general. It was a rare experience which I treasure. The crew members were quite capable AND fun providing service, music and fun.

The food and staff were amazing on this boat. It felt like a vacation family. Be prepared for tiny rooms with little storage space. One suggestion I would make is to improve the bikes offered, even if it adds to the cost. They were clunky about-town bikes, with some of the gears not functional. The first mate doubled as a sometime bike mechanic, but there should be better bikes and bike support. The plus was that the food was out of this world, packed lunches were provided, and drinks were varied and reasonably priced on board. I also think the bike rides should have faster options and allow people back on board earlier so they can go into town. Often it felt like we were purposely slowed down to avoid getting back to the boat before 4 pm. I would have liked faster rides and more choice time later.
