If you love to rifle through markets and antiques shops looking for treasures, who better to accompany you than former Bargain Hunt presenter and director of Sotheby's Tim Wonnacott? He will join our new Antiques Adventure on the Rhone cruise, departing next June - giving you an entertaining look behind the scenes of real-world bargain hunting in the beautiful south of France.
Learn how to find antique treasures in two exclusive and fun talks from Tim, discover how to spot a masterpiece with his expert advice, and take Tim's Antiques Challenge at L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue's famous flea market... He'll give his verdict on a selection of items bought by guests on their trip - and award prizes for the best buys, and a wooden spoon for the worst!
Bargain Hunt's Tim Wonnacott will be your guide!
Emerald Liberte, your home for the week
All this, while you're cruising along the River Rhône - one of Europe's greatest journeys. On guided shore tours you'll experience its many highlights: Lyon's mouthwatering food markets; the fascinating history of Arles and Avignon; the beautiful vineyards of the Beaujolais and Burgundy regions.
"I am looking forward to exploring all the cultural delights the mighty Rhône has to offer," says Tim.
