The barge trip was Excellent! The crew couldn’t have been nicer and the chef was incredible. The food coming out of the galley was over the top and the wines were excellent and plentiful. The trip through the countryside and villages was enchanting and the daily excursions were well organized and informative. Captain Steve Pope clearly enjoys what he does and makes you feel entirely at home on his boat.

Our barge cruise was a dream come true. It was beyond my expectations. The crew was attentive and catered to our every need. The food was superb. The views of the country side were magnificent and the cruise itself was very relaxing.

I can’t begin to express how absolutely wonderful the fairytale trip on your yacht was. Carol and I still have to pinch ourselves to make sure it was real. Our every wish you made come true.

To our friends aboard the Aurora! We live very busy lives in Los Angeles and Southlake, Texas – very seldom having the time to fully relax. You created an environment in which we could completely, totally be ourselves and let the world drift by…Thank you for many little things you did for us which all added up to the vacation of a lifetime. We will be back!! Love,

Your food presentation and taste of every meal meal exceeded many other mega-yachts chefs. The style and savoir-faire in how it was served surpassed many. Hands down! You all won the Class Act award!

There is no water on the Moon! Canals on Mars are a hoax! Nothing can compare with a barge trip – a great relaxing trip with neat friends from Los Angeles. Thanks ever so much!

Rare indeed is the perfect week and we will long remember everything you did to create a magnificent vacation for the eight of us, The gourmet food, the weather, the very special wines, the musical interlude, the flowers, the endless acts of kindness, all combine to make this a truly “but ever” event.

Thank you for those people who make us happy for they are the gardeners of our souls! Thank you so very much for creating the ambience and barging our family through one of the most amazing weeks. We loved the food and the wine, the wonderful attention you gave us!
