Bruce and Marlene Bauman, Untourists of the Week

Submitted by

Bruce and Marlene have been travelling with us since 19Elizabethkillough: Swiss Heartland six times, Swiss Oberland four times, Tuscany, the Rhine and Provence last year. They are booked to go back to Swiss Heartland and Oberland this year!

Tell us a little bit about your most recent Untour. We took a Viking ship down the Rhone river to Avignon, exploring along the way, then 10 days at Isle-sur-la-Sorgue. We enjoyed the country-side location. Ideal place to visit hill towns, et al.
Why did you choose to go there? We love to get-away into the countryside of lavender, wines & fromage, fine meals, etc. and visiting the small interesting villages throughout the area. We also enjoyed visiting some monasteries & hill-side towns.
What is your favorite Untours memory? Probably Fontaine-de-Vaucluse where you can kayak down the small river, walk the trails, dine & shop at the many small shops.
How is taking an Untour different from other ways of traveling? With Untours, you set your own pace & enjoy things that please you. If you want to go back to a village, which we did (Fontaine), you do it! You go where you want to go, not where a tour guide “wishes you to go.” If you need some help, an local Untour person is nearby.
If you could describe an Untour in just 3 words, what would they be? ” A great adventure!”

When the Baumanns go to Switzerland this year they’ve chosen the Chalet Selg, in Swiss Oberland, and the perennial favorite, Künzler 2, in Swiss Heartland. Last year in Provence when they travelled with their dear friends, the Nielsens (pictured above) they were in the Bruneau in L’Isle-sur-Sorgue.
