Joining the barge Burgundy Alsace Lorraine and the Ardennes

On guest changeover days, our barge is normally ready for you at about 4pm and the barge generally moors a short taxi ride from the nearest bus or railway station. A few days prior to your arrival, call me and I will inform you exactly which station you will need to head for in order to meet the barge. I or another member of crew will do our best to meet you at that station and personally escort you to the mooring. 

Unlike many barges, the barge does not repetitively cruise the same section of canal. We offer a constantly moving 'feast' and although endeavoring to keep close to the original 'cruise plan', point out that things often do and have to change. This is why we can only confirm the exact joining point a few days prior to you leaving home. Flexibility is the name of the game and by booking, you must accept that all cruises are subject to unforeseen circumstances. It's an adventure holiday after all...

Worry not. You will be provided with the barge's mobile 'phone number so communication with the barge is unlikely to be a problem. Occasionally, some rural areas have a weak phone signal, but you can always leave a message so that we can call you back.

Once we have confirmed your reservation and dates, you will be able to confidently make international travel arrangements to and from Paris.

All that then remains is for you to make your way to the correct Paris railway station when its time for your train and buy, over the counter, a one way ticket to the final rail destination and joining point we've agreed upon.
