and thank you for joining us.  Please read on for our catch of the day!


Savoir Faire: The name says it all!


The Somme Canal – Abbeville to Froissy
Savoir Faire is the only 12 passenger luxury barge to venture through this waterway. Our tour guide is an expert on WW1 history and we visit some of the most famous battlefields and memorials in the area. In addition we include visits to the mighty Amiens Cathedral, the floating (Hortilonage) gardens, the underground city of Naours and the picturesque port of Saint Vallery. And for those train enthusiasts among you, we have the steam railway built in 1916 for the Battle of the Somme. It was used to supply trenches and artillery during WWI, and was then used by the sugar plant in Dompierre. Now, the little train is used for tourist purposes and offers a great panoramic view over the Somme Valley as far as the Santerre plateau on a 14 km round-trip from Froissy to Dompierre.
Step back in time with us for a 6-night cruise from April 16th through to June 17th:
8-12 person charter only 40,000 USD
OR  Cabin bookings at 4,060 USD per person,  based on double occupancy (subject to availability)
 Champagne – Reims to Chateau Thierry
2016 proved very successful with this fascinating route from the champagne capital, Reims to the battlefields of Chateau Thierry. We visit champagne houses, small privately owned cellars, the mighty cathedral of Reims, the fascinating and informative Museum of Surrender and the haunting WW1 marine Memorial at Belleau Woods and the impressive American Monument to American Soldiers of WW1 which stands over the town of Chateau Theirry. The surrounding vineyards make this one of the most beautiful cruises available in France, if not Europe.

Join us for a 6-night trip of a lifetime combining your love of history with that of Champagne, from June 25th through to October 7th:
8-12 person charter only 50,000 USD
OR  Cabin bookings at 4,900 USD per person, based on double occupancy (subject to availability)

Whichever route you prefer, the Savoir Faire crew remain committed to an exceptionally high standard of both comfort and service and this shall continue as it always has done over the last 10 years.
