EUROPE’S longest running river cruise operation CroisiEurope recently hosted this group of Australian agents to a famil in France, with the trip coordinated by the line’s Australian representative Cruise Abroad. The group flew to Paris with Vietnam Airlines, enjoying some time in Paris first before boarding the TGV for a high-speed rail trip to Bordeaux. Once at St Jean, right in the middle of wine-country, a short taxi ride took the group to Chartrons Quiai where the CroisiEurope vessel Cyrano De Bergerac was moored and waiting for them. Over the course of the next week, the group enjoyed walking tours of a number of quaint little villages, medieval churches, ancient castles and exquisitely manicured gardens. Courses in wine-making were enjoyed along with many opportunities to taste the fruits (literally) of the region. Whilst on board, the agents toured the ship, inspecting many different types of staterooms, enjoyed plenty of fine food and took plenty of positive experiences and tips to pass on to their clients back in Australia.
