The train left Paris at 11:20 ish for the trip to Dijon where we had about 2 hours of free time before the bus ride to Chalon sur Saone. It was a delightful bus ride from the hotel to the train station in Paris with some sightseeing along the way.
We used the Tailormade every day but did find them a bit heavy. It would be worthwhile to carry a small purse/bag that could hold the device without the weight around your neck. The earpiece cord is quite long.

We disembarked in Avignon, not Tarascon. We were only docked in Tarascon for one night and then went back to Avignon for a couple of nights.

We had also done the Jewels of Europe with Scenic before doing the south of FRance. We loved both but I think France was the superior itinerary and enrichment program as well as better food. Not as crowded in the towns either. We loved our French cruise and all of the stops and all of the program. You'll love it I am sure.
