France Cruises debuts free land tours

Building on its commitment for optimizing the experience of the traveler, France Cruises is offering complimentary pre- and post-cruise Land Tours in the most popular French cities when customers purchase a cruise and two-night stay in a hotel of their choice. Available for any departure day, the full-day tours showcase the region’s most extraordinary highlights passengers would generally miss out on during their cruise.

“Our carefully-crafted itineraries offer travelers a blend of authentic and diverse experiences ashore, and all of them present guests with an opportunity for enrichment and adventure,” said Jean-Francois Dabrowski, president of France Cruises.

Guests can take advantage of France Cruises’ Hotel & Tour offer and choose from 29 exciting excursions in eight admired cities, such as walking through 11th-century medieval castles in Carcassonne, taking a wine-making lesson in Bordeaux and climbing up – and dining at – the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Further enhancing the France Cruises experience, the land tours may extend beyond the travelers cruising area. Guests can opt to journey along the scenic Canal du Midi in Southern France on a hotel barge cruise, and conclude their adventure in sunny Nice in the French Riviera.

Additionally, guests have the option to choose their hotel, or select from the cruise company’s sample list of recommendations, which ranges from traditional boutique hotels to deluxe chateaux and historic country inns. Moreover, the special offer can be combined with most of France Cruises promotions and exclusive offers. Promotion is valid for new bookings only, and is subject to availability. A two-night minimum stay in the hotel is required for full-day excursions; however, a one-night stay may allow for a half-day excursion if available.
