Not a lot of cruising--more wine tasting

This cruise was taken with the intent of visiting wineries. If someone is interested in "cruising", then this is not their cruise. There was a little too much emphasis on the city of Bordeaux, a total of 2 1/2 ...

Our Bordeaux region Viking River Cruise was fantastic

This was our 6th Viking river cruise and it was perhaps the best so far. The pre cruise 3 days in the Loire Valley set the tone, it was a very pretty venture and we thoroughly enjoyed our leisurely bus trip down ...

Wonderful and Fun River Cruise Through the Wine Region of France
