We selected the Johanna based on the travel stops and locations in the Champagne region, your cooking reputation and barge experience.
We have had a tremendous time, from our first step on deck we were not disappointed. The food has been fantastic, the wine and champagne perfect and abundant.
We appreciate your passion! It makes you great hosts. The van tours to towns and champagne houses was great, fun and educational.
We are very thankful for you in allowing us to invite our family friends from Chateau-Thierry on board for lunch. This was very special as they shared stories from WW2.
Thank you for being great hosts, we appreciate your endless energy in providing the best tour down the Marne.
We wish you all the best! Sincerely
I have traveled extensively over the years, but we both agree this was one of the most delightful culinary experiences EVER! We have loved every minute of it and will be so sad when it's over. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, capt. Kris, chef Patise and William for a trip of a lifetime.
Fondly, Marche Ann
We have loved getting to know each of you and wish you all the best with the Johanna.
This has been the trip of a lifetime and we will never forget the best vacation --- ever! We hope to see you again. So, until we meet again we will say Au revoir, y'all! All the best.

Bedankt voor de mooie dagen en de pillen + massage. Goed eten en drinken. Een zeer geslaagde week. Kusjes xxx, Clarisse
Vier tachtig-plussers genoten van de champagnestreek tussen Chateau-Thierry en Reims. We hebben het getroffen: het weer, de boot, het gezelschap en het lekkere eten. Bedankt. M Louise , Gilbert
Thank you Patsie, Kris and William. You have participated in memories that will be reviewed, recanted and rejoiced to every friend and family member of ours throughout our lives!
Thank you for a most magical and relaxing experience - and so historical and informative! We so enjoyed you all, the conversations, the tours, the enchanting cruising, and of course, the wonderful "cuisine de Patsie", and superb wine and champagne! And Patsie, thank you so much for sharing recipe hints + guidance + advice (and cookbooks!) and of course the Friday market in Chateau-Thierry!
Kris, your technical and navigation skills and knowledge are amazing - as is Johanna's mighty engine.
We truly hope to join you again in the future! All our best.
Les meilleures vacances de now vies! Merci beaucoup mes nouveaux amis!
Merci et Bon Chance!
Journée de rève ou tout s'arrête! Des hôtes adorables et une table de roi!!! Que demander de plus.
Merci pour votre accueil.
Forgot to say: the "Dame Blanche" will never be forgotten.
Thanks for making my traveling book about dreams a reality. We hope to pave the way for many others to enjoy the beauty of France, Johanna & the crew in such elegant fashion. Thanks also to you for shepherding us around. The champagne experiences, meals on board under Patsie's creative eye, and the smooth sailing make for an unforgettable vacation!
I hope to see you again.
