An escort from the barge will transfer you up from a pre-arranged pick-up point and take you to where the barge is moored. For Burgundy, Upper Loire and Champagne the normal pick-up location is Paris. Some Burgundy cruises are met in Dijon, a simple train journey from the centre of Paris (about an hour and a half.) For southern France cruises you are usually meet in Montpellier, Carcassonne, Beziers, Avignon or Toulouse depending on the barge.
