Apres Tout

Rory and Caroline Macrae have worked in the luxury Hotel barge cruise industry in France for over 20 years. They bought the 'Apres Tout' a six passenger French canal/river barge in 2011 and are proud to be running their own business after all these years – hence the name ‘Apres Tout’ which means in French – after all! Fully conscious that the barge is one of the most important elements of your dream cruise vacation, you will be taken care of with the utmost care. Everything will be prepared for you to ensure an unbelievable cruise experience aboard Apres Tout.

Absoluut2 hosts Rory and Caroline Macrae are owner/operators and have worked in this industry for over 20 years! Rory is a fully qualified Captain and Caroline is a Cordon Bleu chef.

Before buying their own barge - they had worked for 10 years for Orient Express running their 5 hotel barges under the brand name of Afloat in France. Rory was General Manager and Caroline was Operations Manager - so between them, they have a huge knowledge of the barging world. Their tour Guide Nick Borland is also extremely experienced, having worked on hotel barges for over 20 years. He has a fantastic knowledge on wine, visits, history and politics and has a wonderful way with our passengers. We will employ a hostess who will take care of our passengers, cabins and table service in the Spring.
