Exclusively inclusive river cruising

On one of the most enjoyable river cruises in France, journey from the jet-setting capital of Cannes on the Riviera into Provence to Arles to board ms Emerald for a cruise along the Rhône River to Lyon and then along the Saône.

Travel into the countryside past vineyards where some of the world’s best grapes become some of the world’s best wines, stopping to taste some of them. Discover river towns with Roman roots and lingering traces of medieval magic in their streets, experience the cowboy traditions and cuisine of La Camargue, and sample the pleasures of regional cuisine and wine throughout your trip. Explore a palace fit for a pope and an abbey that was once one of the most powerful in Europe. You'll find something new, something wonderful every day. And during two nights in Paris, you'll dine at chic Fouquet's on the Champs-Élysées! Read Less

What it's like to cruise France's Rhône Valley wine country

Tauck Exclusive – Experience la Camargue

An exclusive Provençal experience on a family owned ranch in la Camargue

Drive past marshy fields of grazing bulls and white horses to a privately owned ranch in la Camargue, where the Rhône meets the sea, and experience a different taste of Provençal life for Tauck guests only. It begins with a horseback welcome by the warm-hearted family who lives here, continues with a farm-fresh feast of locally produced fare and a heartfelt guitar serenade, and culminates in a display of skill by Provençal cowboys (known as gardians) that will have your heart racing at every turn.

InterContinental Paris-Le Grand

Parisian grandeur for over a century and a half

InterContinental Paris Le Grand has been the soul of Second Empire grandeur since the day Empress Eugenie inaugurated it in 1862, a magnet for royal guests like Tsar Nicholas II and Edward VII... the go-to place where Victor Hugo hosted parties, and writers like Oscar Wilde, Emile Zola, and Guy de Maupassant were regulars at the café. Filling an entire city block just off the grand Boulevard des Capucines, across from the Opera House and an easy walk to the Louvre, this luxury hotel is close to the heart of Paris, in both its romantic past and elegant present.

You'll see beautiful churches, world famous art galleries and many Roman and pre-Roman historical sites always with expert guides. The Tauck formula at its best.

Great combination of land and sea. Hotel in Monte Carlo was centrally located. The riverboat was beautifully appointed; cabins were large and the food was fabulous. The boat docked most of the time right in town, and other times a short walk away. The Tauck tour and cruise directors were wonderful. Extremely hot weather the first few days.

Most Memorable Moment:

Dinner at the Duchy of Uzes castle; cruising into the port of Avignon at night.


The real reason for me booking this trip was to satisfy my travel partner's dream of visiting Paris - neither Monte Carlo NOR Paris were ever on my radar. I was not disappointed in any way, shape or form. Staff were exemplary; sites visited were unique (off the beaten path; I doubt that any other cruise line can match Tauck).

Most Memorable Moment:

Seeing the Eiffel Tower.
