Review of the Amadeus Cruise

Review of the Amadeus Cruise

The director, Ranjiv, of one of our favourite agents, Veenus, spent a night on board the Amadeus Cruise boat to experience what it had to offer. Please read his account on the boat below.

We are offering a Treasures of Burgundy and Provence Cruise an Amadeus boat on 4th April 2018. Please see this tour on our website  or ring 01793 821303 for a brochure.

 "Upscale river cruising is the new must do travel experience!

Not only do you get closer to the sights, sounds and scenery of the local landscape but the service is from a bygone era of personal detail: the food is excellently prepared and presented. Your server will remember what you ordered so the plate glides on to the table. No need to break your stride of that entertaining story that you are recounting.

 Travelling on an Amadeus cruise will give you a bigger, modern vessel with more public and individual cabin space. Access picturesque and intimate destinations and excellently designed excursions with knowledgeable guides who give you the inside track on the intriguing locals. My wine tasting experience at the family owned vineyard was both informative and entertaining.

So there is cruising and there is Amadeus river cruising. Cruising on an Amadeus ship is special cruising: special service, special access, special experience.

Book now as spaces are seriously limited."

Meet the Barnes Team! - Driver Ross

Meet the Barnes Team! - Driver Ross

Over the next few months we will be introducing the Barnes staff so you can get to know the people that help make everything happen behind the scenes at Barnes Coaches! We've done a quick question & answer session to help you get to know them, first up we have Barnes Driver Ross.

Name? Ross or Rossco

How long have you worked at Barnes Coaches? I think near on or over 3 years.

What do you do? I like to think I drive a coach but have been known to think im a pilot on the microphone.

Favourite food? Oh I love a good Chinese.

Any Hobbies? Stargazing is a must, playing my piano is also a definite.

What do you like most about working in travel? Truth be told that I love meeting new people and doing what I can to make them enjoy our holidays.

Favourite destination? Hmmm I will have to go with Holland….Oh and Eastbourne…oh and Scotland. Can I have more than 3?

What three items would you take to a desert island, and why? Now that’s a tough one, I’d have to take someone with me to keep me company. Most likely a football called Wilson and shout at him when I make fire. “I’ve made fire…. I’ve…. Made fire!” and last but not least a picture of my family to keep me upbeat whilst looking for berries.
