ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Susan Gillie Jul 05, 2014 at 06:32 PM

Do you know anyone at all who has gotten motion sickness on this trip? We'd love to do it, but my husband is very susceptible
Helen Albanese Jul 05, 2014 at 06:56 PM

check out this product: I am not a seller or affiliated with them; ran up on the website recently. You might want to try these out on a domestic excursion first. Good luck. I used something similar 25 yrs ago on ferry from Palermo to Naples.
Charles Routh Jul 05, 2014 at 08:09 PM

We don't know of anyone who got motion sickness on this particular trip but we have been on a number of trips in Europe on a river boat and I never heard of anyone getting motion sickness from a river boat. There is a lot of difference between the motion you get in the open ocean and the motion on a river boat which is very minimal. However it may be a good idea to check with your doctor and consider getting some medication as a prophylactic just in case. There are a lot of patches, bands and pills which do the job.

We are going to the Impressionist Tour starting on 5 Sept. but we are leaving from Seattle to Paris on 2 Sept (We like to get over jet lag before the program starts)

See you there. My wife and I are flying out of Boston this Friday and spending some time near Nice before joining the tour in Paris.

Jan Lemasters Apr 04, 2014 at 11:22 AM

I leaving May 7 from Atlanta. Anyone flying from there? I am also a single that requested a roommate. Anyone else in that situation?
Wendy Kovacs Apr 04, 2014 at 12:44 PM

Hi Jan, I'm leaving out of Newark that day. I am also anticipating being assigned a roommate. Whether or not we end up roommates, I look forward to meeting you and the rest of the participants.
Jan Lemasters Apr 04, 2014 at 01:03 PM

Wendy, look forward to meeting you. Have you been to France before?
Wendy Kovacs Apr 04, 2014 at 02:11 PM

No I haven't. Germany and Italy only. Love Impressionism, so am anticipating a great tour!
Jean Henderson Apr 08, 2014 at 03:14 PM

Hi Wendy, Turns out that I've been able to coordinate everything and will be joining the May 7 -18 tour after all. Am coming from St. Louis via Chicago but will arrive pretty close to the rest of the groups flights. Looking forward to meeting everyone.
Wendy Kovacs Apr 08, 2014 at 05:26 PM

Great news, Jean. I look forward to a fantastic trip. See you in Paris!
