Holiday reviews from Grez-Neuville
We will leave next year
This was our first river cruise, but the Nicols team made us feel at home and had many sailing tips. We loved this experience! Our only regret was that we didn’t have longer! We cruise with Nicols again next year, so we must choose another destination!
