We have been regular travellers with Buzzlines for a number of years. In February 2017 following major surgery we went to Spain when I was using crutches and a wheelchair, the office made sure that I had disabled rooms. The driver Vernon could not have been more helpful and despite my lack of mobility we had a lovely holiday. The coaches are very comfortable and you have plenty of legroom and regular comfort stops. We would recommend Buzzlines to anyone.
In May 2018 we went to the Black Forest in Germany staying in a delightful hotel in Oberwolfach where the rooms were large and very comfortable and the food was excellent and the staff could not have been more helpful. The trips out were fantastic and the scenery was beautiful. The hotel held a fantastic BBQ one evening and the weather could not have been better.

We have just returned from the best holiday we have ever had, the Buzzlines Backwaters canal cruise in Burgundy.
We chose the Nivernais holiday with the combination of cruising and visits to places of historical interest and great beauty.
Our hotel in the pretty town of Vermenton was simple but beautifully clean and provided an excellent continental breakfast and a variety of superb evening meals. The manager of the hotel and tour was so friendly, informative, helpful and always available throughout the week.
Our coach driver was brilliant! He was a safe, competent driver, a mine of information and had such a splendid sense of humour.
The barge Natalia was brand new, immaculately fitted out and very comfortable. The crew were extremely skilled and negotiated the many locks with great expertise. Almost the best part of the holiday were the wonderful lunches prepared on the barge, they were simply delicious!
Every day we disembarked and had the chance to explore beautiful cathedrals, a basilica and mediaeval towns. We had an amazing visit to some incredible caves with a superb guide and of course there had to be wine tasting in Chablis.
We will definitely be booking another similar holiday at least once next year and would heartily recommend the Backwaters holiday package, it was simply wonderful.

I am writing to express my appreciation of the 15th September cruise on the Yonne. I am sure that by now you will have been thanked by the many who did the trip as it was obvious all were enjoying the experience. The weather was obviously a bonus and the superb on board catering ensured we all looked forward to lunch, and there was of course the lunch at the Auberge in Villeneuve-sur-Yonne, a meal not to be forgotten.
- Alan Green
We certainly enjoyed the simplicity and tranquillity on the Natalia. The whole atmosphere of the holiday was good and information about distance for walking/cycling between locks and the informative map books on board were an excellent aid to our enjoyment. Château Ancy-le-Franc expertly guided by Sheena, the Chablis tasting and meal after at the Hotel de la Poste plus the lovely lunch beside the river at the Auberge La Lucarne aux Chouettes were all very good.

We have recently returned from the Backwaters holiday based in Auxerre and would like to tell you how much we enjoyed it. It was a delight from start to finish , the staff were all extremely pleasant and helpful. The hours spent on the boat were especially wonderful . The organisation was very good and the days pleasantly varied.

Thank you so very much for making the wonderful holiday The Joys of the Yonne so marvellous and special. Every minute was magic.

We really enjoyed our week on the river barge Natalia. It was so peaceful and relaxing, while the canals and rivers that we travelled along were a scenic delight. with a variety of wildlife to be seen. The service was excellent as were the lunches and the crew were so friendly and capable. You were quick to recognise when plans needed to be altered and the changes were made seamlessly. We certainly look forward to travelling with you again.
