Go Barging is a subsidiary of European Waterways, Europe’s largest luxury hotel barging company, offering 6-night/7-day barge trips in seven countries and carrying approximately 2,000 passengers a year.
Founded more than 35 years ago, Go Barging designs, builds, owns and operates a private fleet of luxury barges with exclusive cruises in France, Scotland, England, Ireland, Holland, Belgium and Italy.
The company’s hotel barges accommodate between 4 and 12 passengers and are ideal for people looking for either an individual cruise with other like-minded people, or for those wanting a whole barge charter for a family or group of friends.
Go Barging’s hotel barge cruises include accommodation in air-conditioned, ensuite cabins, gourmet meals, fine wines, an open bar and all excursions.
All vessels are fully crewed with a Captain, gourmet chef, hostess and tour guide, with a private air-conditioned mini-bus taking passengers on excursions.
The company offers daily itineraries that give passengers the opportunity to visit cultural and historical places of interest, vineyards and markets in each region.
Also offered are tandem cruises for larger parties and a wide selection of themed cruises, such as wine appreciation, golf and even honeymoon charters on three barges.
Go Barging was the first company to put a barge on the Upper Nivernais Canal in Burgundy, and in the “real” Loire Valley. It also is the only company with barges in Scotland and in the Venetian lagoon, as well as the first to offer an Avignon-to-Amsterdam six-week trans-Europe cruise.
