Highlights
  • Cruise up the canals of burgundy aboard the danièle
  • Sip local wines and sample regional dishes
  • Cycle through villages and vineyards
  • Relax in the onboard jacuzzi as the scenery glides by

Blessed with some of the most gorgeous countryside in Europe, if not the world (not to mention perhaps the best wine around), Burgundy is a place everyone should explore at least once. And the best way to do it is from the deck of an ambling river barge. Visit small villages and first-rate wineries, bike through forests and vineyards on a provided bicycle, and soak up the glorious sunshine, all with the help of a charming little hotel that goes where you go. You won’t get a better glimpse of Burgundy’s pastoral pleasures than this.

Great trip! Loved the small group size and descriptive outline. The small trip size allowed for your voice to be heard on stop recommendations as well. Also an active trip was very fun. September 2015

Great tour, well organized. I can't imagine a better way to see the Loire valley than by bike and this tour did an amazing job introducing me to the Loire.

It was an awesome trip. After a week of running and taking trains around Rome, Florence, Venice, and Cinque Terre -- that week was a awesome break to just relax and enjoy the Amalfi Coast. We stayed at agriturismo and had farm-to-table meals every breakfast and every dinner.

This trip called for a lot of hiking -- not recommended for those who do not hike or exercise on a regular basis.

I had the most magical experience thank you. Especially so , spoilt by having the very best skipper Damir. Through Damir's local knowledge of the Island's, he was able to give us the best possible experience. If I was to go home tomorrow, (& my travel plans are, travelling for some months yet) I would be the happiest woman alive! I rate this adventure, the very best in my life time.Damir's caring thoughts of each & everyone of his passengers needs were to make this sailing trip very special to us all. Our safety & well being was paromount at all times, but always giving us the flexability also. I have already started spreading the word. Thank you so much G Adventures. Warmest regards, Vivienne Nye November 2015

Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and solo travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.

Age Notes

Min. Age: You must be 18 to travel unaccompanied on a G Adventures tour. For minors travelling with a guardian over 21 years old, the minimum age is 12.

Rules & Other Requirements Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter, and in particular the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our group leader has the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.
