“We took this tour in 2009 with family and it was one of the most memorable experiences ever! The food was fabulous, the crew charming, helpful and informative. Captain Julian was most hospitable, and even let my 88 year old father pilot! We absolutely recommend the Athos.”

“Eight of us took this tour a few years back and it was splendid. From the outstanding knowledge Dannielle has of the art and history of this part of France, to over the top food service and fresh hot croissants in the mornings, we still talk about this trip. Absolutely the way to see this part of France.”


“Very relaxing, fantastic scenery, excellent food and a very good selection of wines and local produce. The cultural tours and excellent service by the Athos staff… we like being pampered like this.”

“Hi Danielle and Julian, finally back home. I can’t express in words how fantastic the experience has been. Both of you are amazing in your knowledge and skills. My wife and I still find ourselves laughing over the “Captain’s Dinner”.”
