Another delightful and educational river cruise experience with Road Scholar, Frans, and Hedi - with the added bonus of three days each in two of Europe's most beautiful cities. I can recommend this program to anyone interested in European travel.

This is a wonderful Road Scholar trip. Frans and Hedi, our guides, did an excellent job of ensuring we saw Paris, Barcelona, and the Medieval towns along the Saone and Rhone Rivers. The cruise was first class. Our ship, the Amadagio, was a fine boat; the crew and staff were helpful and treated us royally. Hedi and Frans' lectures were excellent as well. It is easy to recommend this trip. Perhaps consider adding additional days in Paris and Barcelona. We added 6 extra days in Paris and were happy we did. Also, the weather this time of year could not have been better.

Wonderful trip -- Especially loved all the Roman ruins and history of the areas. Walking in Paris and Barcelona was wonderful - felt such a part of the cities. The Riverboat Cruise was all I could have hoped for. Just a wonderful experience and our tour leaders were wonderful, as well as the individual guides.

I just returned from a tour to Paris, down the Rhone and to Barcelona that exceeded all my expectations. There was just the right mix of fun, learning, sightseeing, and educational tours. The tour leaders were wonderful, and I could not have had a better experience - I'll go on another Road Scholar tour again!

Good food, good wine, great art and the whole bookended by two of the world's most beautiful cities: there was nothing to complain about here. Just having a coffee and watching the Provencal scenery slide by was a great joy.

We saw parts of France that we never would have been able to visit on our own. The tour guide in St. Remy en Provence was an artist himself, and I have never felt Van Gogh to be so alive.
