"My talented and tasteful travel pal, Chef Lynn Crawford and I are planning our escape... and you’re invited to get away with us,” offered Tommy Smythe. “We are excited to partner with Scenic Luxury River Cruises to create a custom culinary and design experience in France! I’m so looking forward to this, I need two languages to express my excitement! This is the best! Ça c'est bon, n’est pas??"
Chef Lynn Crawford concurred, “Join my talented and charming friend Tommy Smythe and I as we embark on a once-in-a-lifetime Five Star adventure. Set your senses ablaze with a myriad of flavours, scents and experiences on offer during the cruise, and discover with us why this region is rightly famous for its beauty, cuisine, wines, architecture and magical history.”
The truly all-inclusive itinerary, from Tarascon to Lyon, takes in some of the best that France has to offer its visitors. From the medieval castles and cathedrals of Tarascon and Vienne to the never-ending diversity of foods in Avignon to the celebrated wines of the Beaujolais region, guests will have much to choose from as they sail in luxury aboard one of Scenic’s Space Ships.
Highlights, besides the hosting of several events by Chef Lynn Crawford and Tommy Smythe, include excursions to Avignon’s Roman-era aqueduct Pont du Gard, walking tours of the ancient village of Viviers and the medieval hilltop town of Pérouges, a E-bike cycling tour through the scenic landscapes that surround Vienne, and the sampling of the renown wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape at a Côtes du Rhone vineyard, and the equally sought after varieties in the ‘Golden Stone’ region of Beaujolais. A particular highlight of this sailing is a Scenic Enrich exclusive evening concert in the 14th-century Palais des Papes (Popes’ Palace).
