This was our second trip and would highly recommend it.. It is a fabulous way to celebrate a special occasion or just a friend/family getaway.. The vacation is all inclusive from pickup in paris to the fine wines, local cheese, gourmet food, daily tours with Glen and a private car and the 3 cabins are identical and comfortable. Nice to have cable tv/wifi, lovely bathrooms. They have a few itineraries, either river or canal.. We are planning to go back in two years..Perfect for 3 couples or two small families.. Immaculate boat/amazing crew.

The most beautiful Barge in all of Burgundy’! We had the most wonderful trip with our good friends (total of six passengers) on the Apres Tout- this was our second trip back! Even better and more memorable than our first trip! Owners Caroline and Rory are the most gracious hosts and we had the most delicious food (Caroline is a Cordon Bleu chef) paired with fabulous Burgundian wines! Our tour guide Glen was ultra- knowledgeable in Burgundian wines and history, and Alana was our cheese specialist and all around delight to be around! This is a history lesson as well as a great vacation! Rory, our captain and “my buddy” is the best! Beautiful scenery, relaxation, love and laughter is how I would describe this awesome vacation. If anyone wants a tour through Burgundy- this is a MUST!!!

The captain and chef are not just friendly and helpful, they are immediately friends. The wine and tour guide is fun, friendly, and knowledgeable. He leads the excursions and introduces the wines at meals, always beginning with a white for the first course and then a red for the main. Fabulous cheese course. Each dish is more delicately flavorful and delectable than the last. Burgundy is more empty than most of France we have visited, the scenery is lovely, and even in late June, the tourists were very few. The locks were great fun, can walk or bike along the towpath. I have paid the same price for a 100 person river cruise and thought that experience was great, but this is another universe of fun, education, leisure, and new friends.

When I turned 60, my family had an awesome time on Apres Tout. Every minute was incredible. The barge is immaculately maintained, every meal was deliciously prepared by Caroline, going through the locks with Rory was so interesting to watch, all of our excursions were well plan and enjoyed by all. It was six days of total enjoyment for my entire family. We made so many special memories that week. That was two years ago. Now, I am excited about our upcoming trip with friends. The six of us are going on Apres Tout in late September and we can’t wait! It will so wonderful to see Rory, Caroline, Glen, and Cedric. We will miss Hannah, but wish her well as she welcomes her new baby shortly. Marc and I are counting down the days till we are back on board!

We had really looked forward to our barge cruise in Burgundy, but we had no idea of the wonderful experience we were about to have. The boat is beautiful and in amazing shape. Rory makes going through the locks look so easy! Caroline prepared absolutely delicious meals and was such fun demonstrating for us in the galley. Glen educated us on history, wine and anything else...he is a delight. Cedric and Alana made everything else run effortlessly. We had a great time on and off the boat....so much so that we booked for next year before we left. We can't wait to rejoin this beautiful boat and its warm and welcoming people!
