We had a family vacation of a lifetime on La Belle Epoque. The boat was beautiful and the crew was fantastic! The meals, wine and cheese were delicious. The crew exceeded our family group of 10's (17 years to 80) expectations!

Fantastic trip along the Great Glen in Scotland. Admittedly you pay a lot, but you're buying the most incredible customer service imaginable (and oh my goodness, the meals!!). Absolutely perfect for my 85-year-old uncle, still healthy but needing a good support crew.

        About European Waterways

        European Waterways specializes in offering hotel-quality barge cruises in eight European countries, with a particular emphasis on France. The barges travel slowly along peaceful inland canals that wind through scenic countryside, offering a relaxing and luxurious experience.

        What Makes Them Stand Out?

        European Waterways is a pioneer in European barge cruising and has the largest fleet of barges (17) operating there today. They also can arrange a wide variety of specialty and theme barge cruises, ranging from culinary to cycling, families with children to flower shows, opera to tennis, golf to art and antiques, walking to wine. And they offer daily escorted excursions to off the beaten path destinations such as wineries, castles, and markets.

        Who Travels With Them?

        Barge trips are expensive, so affluent couples interested in the cuisine, culture, scenery, and history of the destinations are the primary clientele.

        Where Do They Operate?

        Eight countries: France (Burgundy, Canal du Midi, Alsace and Lorraine, Gascony, Bordeaux, Champagne, Paris, Picardy) Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, Holland, Italy, the UK (including Scotland) and Ireland.

        How Does It Work?

        You can either charter an entire barge for you, your family and/or friends, or take a cabin on a barge with other travelers. The17 barges in the fleet range in capacity from six to 20 passengers. All barges come with fully staffed crews (captain, chef, housekeeper, tour guide), and have been refurbished using hardwoods and solid brass. One barge is wheelchair accessible. Most have spa-pools on the sun deck and air conditioning below, and come with central heating and bicycles as well. Cruises are six nights and are all-inclusive (including regional wines and open bar).

        Why Travel With Them?

        Barge travel is the ultimate luxury in European waterway travel, which not only makes the name European Waterways highly appropriate, it offers a way to see Europe that few travelers ever get a chance to experience.
