The 2022 season started with an early March cruise along the rivers Yonne & Seine from Auxerre to Moret-sur-Loing. And finished with a Autumn cruise the entire length of the canal from the Loire back to Auxerre, stopping along the way taking in some wonderful sights and many charming restaurants.
Cruising from restaurant to restaurant and savoring the best cuisine France has to offer, dining at outstanding local restaurants along our route is one of the joys of Randle barge cruising. Evening taxi service is included for those too good to miss, but not too close to the canal, and of course the fabulous on board dining by chef Geal.
Wishing everybody an very enjoyable festive season !
