Excellent service from Scenic. All was included: drinks, tips etc, so although it seemed expensive, there was nothing else to pay. There were well organised excursions, with consideration for those with walking problems. They did ... Read more

There was no single supplement and airfare discount deal included from Australia when I travelled with Scenic on this occasion. Spent a couple of days in Bordeaux before boarding cruise. A beautiful city with great history. I found the ... Read more

We are great fans of French reds and really enjoyed our previous trips exploring the Rhone region and Champagne areas of France. Bordeaux appealed for many of the same reasons: lovely scenery, great wineries, picturesque chateaux, ... Read more

Scenic really does an excellent job of caring for their guests from dining to excursions to personal requests. You expect more for all exclusive vacation and they deliver and go beyond. We started with a day in Paris. We dined at one of ... Read more
