  1. We will travel to St. Petersburg on Viking Ocean cruise in May 2021. If we hire a private tour company for a 2 day tour do we need a visa?
  2. The Lumieres show was a highlight for me. In Lyon we took the day off of tours and booked a wonderful lunch at Le Sud, owned by 3 star chef, Paul Bocuse. You can walk there from the ship. Enjoy.
  3. We did the walking tour in the morning, although we were not that impressed with the Pope's Palace. If I did it again I would just walk around on my own. We also did the optional tour, Chateauneuf-du-Pape. We enjoyed winery, had a short stop in the town, but mostly we enjoyed the beautiful countryside drive.
  4. I agree with philw1776. The St Germain an Lay tour well worth the visit.
  5. Hi, Cool Cruiser. I'll be in Michigan, too, in a couple of weeks. Hope you can stop in Traverse City. I lived in T.C. for 35 years. It is a great place.(Now in Venice, Florida.) Another beautiful spot is the Les Cheneaux Islands in the U.P. Happy sailing.
  6. Be sure to build in A LOT of time to get from the ship to whichever train station you choose. The Paris traffic is really bad.
  7. For those who are going to Lyon may I suggest having lunch at Brasserie Le Sud, part of the restaurant group started by Michelin chef, Paul Bocuse. It offers Mediterranean Cuisine. You can walk from the pier where the ship is docked. We each had the two course meal and wine. Our bill was about $40 each. It was a wonderful experience.
  8. We flew in from Amsterdam, arriving in Marseille at 11:30 am.
  9. There is no tour of Marseille. It took about 1/2 for everyone to come out from the baggage area. The Viking rep was there waiting for us.The transfer was a little over an hour.
  10. Thanks for sharing. We depart for our Viking adventure on Monday.
  11. Peabody304 I see that Paris Webservices' 1/2 day tour of Giverney is 6 hours (to/from Paris) at 99E per person. Where will they pick you up? what time? Thanks.
  12. We are on the May 21 sailing of France's Finest. We will have a free afternoon in Lyon. Looking for restaurant suggestions for a nice lunch.
