This was truly a trip of a lifetime for Gary and I. You have a wonderful home and home town. The meals, were a 10 plus Dawn. Perfect portions and the selections were delicious. Your enthusiasm and extensive knowledge of wine, history, Jason made all our excursions a pleasurable learning experience. You all made us feel so comfortable and "at home" away from our home. We can not wait to share our memories with our friends and family.

Mr and Mrs Nowak2017-09-10U.S.A

Words can never truly express what a special time we had with all of you on the Saroche celebrating 30 years of marriage. A dream come true to be on the barge. We loved our tours, the wine, the history, the wine, the food (fabulous Dawn), the wine, the countryside, the wine, our joking around, the wine, oh did I mention how much we enjoyed learning about and drinking wine? And Champagne! The trip was beyond ALL expectations and made even more perfect by your never ending hospitality, your willingness to please and your sense of humor and smiles. A 5 star Michelin trip, can not wait for a return adventure.

Mr and Mrs Kelley2016.10.22U.S.A

There are times in life when one needs to just let go of the wheel and let the current send you slowly down the river. We were at that point in our lives and the Saroche proved to be the quintessential boat and you each provided the hospitality that let us release ourselves into your care. We look forward to returning for our third time very soon.

Lisa and Chris Rouss2015-07-04U.S.A

It is hard to believe Chris and I were here five years ago and have been lucky enough to return. We know our next trip with you wont take five years to arrange. We have been to many places and none of them quite compare to our journey with both of you. "Thank you" does not do justice to how much gratitude we have ... All of it.... The hospitality, fun, tastings, history On and on it goes until the next voyage.

Linda and Bart Snow2015-06-12U.S.A

Bart and I couldn't ask for a better 30th Anniversary. Your wonderful hospitality made it a truly memorable experience. We also appreciate your flexibility on the itinerary. Our French culinary tour was fabulous!!! We will not have any hesitation in recommending you to our friends.

Patty and Peter Bens2015-05-30U.S.A

This is once again a wonderful week. It was perfection from the pick up day to the sad day that we departed. Dawn is a master in and out of the kitchen.

May we meet again.

Mr and Mrs Pereira2014-09-19USA

We had an amazing time on " Who Knows" and we cannot wait to come back for the Burgundy trip! Both Jason and Dawn were superb and we came back with wonderful memories and friendships! Jason was delightful, enthusiastic, energetic and humorous as our tour manager, concierge, Barge Captain with an enviable fund of knowledge about the French history, topography, world wars, wines and what ever we asked him about, including Hospice du Beaune and wine auctions! Dawn was a sweet counterpoint with her delightful " pleasure" response to our every thank you! Amazing chef who dazzled us with her culinary skills! Both were attentive to detail and very very charming!

Mr and Mrs Farrell2014-09-19USA

Everything was perfect – the food, the wine, the excursions, the ambiance. Jason and Dawn are the quintessential hosts We felt like we were eating in a gourmet restaurant every meal. Each excursion was thoughtfully planned and flawlessly executed. Jason’s knowledge of the background for each excursion was tremendous added value. It was all wonderful. The trip of a lifetime.

Mr and Mr Schneider2012-7-3USA

We had an experience beyond our expectations! The food, the wine, the attention to detail and most of all your passion for " the French way of life". Sharing that with us is a memory we shall never forget.

Mr and Mrs Blumenfie2012-7-3USA

Whilst having many trepidations regarding our first trip to France, what with our almost complete lack of language skills, we must say that this has easily been our most memorably vacation. From the accommodation to the phenomenal attention to detail, depth of knowledge of the area and easy going manner, your product ( our experience) was just wonderful.

Roz Blumenfield2012-7-3USA

Thank you for the most memorable experience of my all my travels. Dawn is the coolest, sweetest, most gifted chef. The food she prepared was superb. Jason's knowledge of the wine and history of the countryside is mind boggling. My wish is to travel with you both, in any capacity and as soon as possible.

Mr and Mrs Hazard2012-6-22USA

I don't know when we have ever been so relaxed and enjoyed ourselves so much. It has been something so unexpected, from the minute we boarded. The beautiful boat, your unbelievable cooking Dawn, your wealth of knowledge Jason, being with friends and how beautiful France is just cruising the canal. Thank you for all your hard work and never letting us help.

Mr and Mrs Reeves2012-6-22USA

It truly has been the most complete but yet relaxing vacation we have ever been on. We will be sharing our experiences of the "who knows" with friends back home.

Mr and Mrs Walron2012-6-22USA

We have a painting in our home of a canal in France. For years I have imagined myself in that scene. Jason and Dawn you have made my dream vacation into a reality that much exceeded my imagination.

Mr and Mrs Strong2012-5-15USA

I really don't want to write this as it means that this is our last day. We admire your choreography of this wonderful " ballet" you created around us all week. An incredible week made for memories to share with out kids. P.s while sobering up slowly, lets not forget the thank you for your education on the regional wines that leaves us all thirsty for more.

Mr and Mrs Callow2012-6-1Australia

There have been so many wow moments. What an amazing week! We have run out of superlatives. We shall return, there are many many more experiences to share.

Mr and Mrs Dalby2012-6-1Australia

" how lucky are we?" What a fabulous holiday. Dawns cooking is memorable and just brilliant. Jason's knowledge of the history of the local area and wines couldn't be better. I hope we get an opportunity to do it again some time.

Helen Bee and Carl d2012-5-25USA

You have fed us fabulously, ( thanks for much to Dawn for catering to my vegetarian needs so well), taught us, laughed with us, and generally created contentment which was not a state we enjoy that often! We will recommend this trip to one and all and will hope to be back for another round soon.

Mr and Mrs Monteith2012-5-11USA

France is such a wonderful place. Always has been my favourite, we've been fortunate to visit here many times. I want you to know that this has been by far our best visit. The food and wine are our passions and Dawn prepared our cuisine like a 3 star Michelin chef. Always describing the dishes and presenting them in the finest fashion. Jason is a walking encyclopaedia, the tours, wine presentation, cheese etc are the best we've had. The "Who Knows" is a craft I lust for.

Trish Davis2012-5-4USA

This cruise was woefully under promised and hugely over delivered . We did not anticipate the knowledge! Care! Humour! Enthusiasm! Deliciousness ! That we were treated with all week. I've no doubt that persuading my pals to accompany me on another adventure aboard the who knows, will be one of the easiest tasks in my future.

Mr and Mrs Bell and2011-10-7USA

Thank you for such a wonderful week, we have thoroughly enjoyed the whole barging experience. Your professional approach and attention to detail are second to none. But it's your friendly, welcoming hospitality that made our week such a joy. Jason's tours and tasting and Dawns food, the local restaurants were all superb. The peace and tranquility of watching the French countryside glide by was just what we needed. This week has been the highlight of our month in France. We have loved every minute. We will be return.

Mr and Mrs Singleton2011-09-30Canada

This has been an awesome week! We had perfect weather. Our cosy room 5 was excellent. Dawns cooking! Unfortunatly the other restaurants could not compete! We loved waking up on the canal, riding along the tow path and lounging on the deck. We learned so much about Burgundy wines, jasons extensive knowledge is wonderful. We definatly plan to return.

Mr and Mrs Turnball2011-9-16australia

For all 6 of us, when people ask us what was the highlight of our Trip, unamimously it has been the week we spent with you. Im afraid the who knows cookbook has become tattered and torn showing it off.

Mr and Mrs Brubaker2011-10-9USA

Top 10 reasons why this is the best vacation:- 1. Dawn is the best of the morning... Noon and night. 2. Cocktails start at breakfast. 3. Straight, flat paths in beautiful, tranquil countryside in which to walk and cycle along. 4. Jason the encyclopdia. 5. The floating Wine cellar. 6. Breakfast, lunch, dinner - its all about gourmet chef Dawn. 7. The Ashcrofts Quick wit and sense of humour. 8. The towel fairy... How does Dawn find the time. 9. Most of all, à special time with old friends, new friends in Dawn and Jason. 10. Grand marnier soufflés
