Our staff, Captain Jonathan, Chef Jim, Hostess Lola and her sister Rosalie went over and above to make the trip memorable. We took pictures of every meal as they were works of art! We loved our time on the barge and will cherish memories for a lifetime!

We spent three weeks touring Nepal and India. We can really recommend Safhands Travel and especially Mr. Rohit. The tour and itinerary suggested by Rohit was excellent. The service received by the Safehands representatives, welcomers, drivers and guides was first class. We will treasure our memories of this holiday. Thank you Rohit.

Me my wife and our daughter had no problems all over the tour as Mr Rohit has planned exaclty the way we wanted it to be. Besides then a small room problem in Shimla ca use the room was small and there don't have running hot water as other hotels cause we had a child and we were first time feeling the chills of winter but it's was settled by Rohit as he promised us. Regarding the firts driver I think he is not fit to be a tour driver, beginning was okay but towards then end he was slacking but that to was settled by Rohit, by giving us a new driver.but overall we was happy and enjoyed the cold weather which we wanted to experience once in a life time as we are from Malaysia. We will come back to India and will get Rohit from Safe Hands to do the arrangements again. Will recommend to all who wish to travel to India SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. Thank you Rohit SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. All the best you.

Excellent travel company. There were only 4 ladies traveling however, throughout the trip, we felt very safe and in good hands. Excellent accommodation, vehicles, sightseeing, guides and their followup care. The driver was very patient with our none ending shopping request. Would recommend to all

      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.
