Review summary

A very nice experience to see the south of France.  We enjoyed the visits to Beaune and Chataneuf du Pape the best; would have preferred more time in Beaune.  Due to low bridges along the river, the top deck was unavailable most of the trip.  All staff and service were very good.  We did Paris and Nice extensions.  Hotel in Paris had a great location near Opera metro.  Nice hotel was in front of beach; nice area next to old town.  Viking did a great job on transfer from Paris to Chalon.  Poor job from Avignon to Nice, bus air conditioning broke down and rode for 1 and 1/2 hours in an "oven", close to 100 degrees that day.  Viking agent at Nice not very helpful upon arrival.  Departure agent from hotel to Nice airport very helpful and timely.
