Jackie Williams, Owner of NuVibe Travel Experiences, LLC, has personally partnered with AmaWaterways to curate the first-ever “Soulful Epicurean Experience” on the river.
In short, it’s the first-ever river cruise itinerary to focus on Black Heritage on the European Rivers – AND YOU’RE INVITED!
Join us while we explore the black cultural history of Marseille before boarding the award-winning AmaKristina in Avignon as we sail through the South of France along the Rhône River to Lyon. You will conclude your journey in Paris, where many Black artists, writers and entertainers made their mark. Enjoy a variety of experiences exclusive to this special itinerary, such as guided tours showcasing jazz, food and wine, all while shining a light on Black heritage.
Discover centuries worth of Black history as you venture to several sites in and around Paris during this exclusive full-day tour. You will see the iconic Arc de Triomphe and the Monument to the Abolition of Slavery as your guide shares the history of the Code noir, a decree passed by King Louis XIV in 1685 defining the conditions of slavery. From there, you will drive past Montmartre, learning about the cabarets and famous jazz musicians who made their mark here before walking through the African district, renowned for its African food and street vendors, and visiting Little Africa, a gallery space and cultural initiative in La Goutte d’or district. Your full-day tour also includes a panoramic tour of the left bank of Paris, the Latin Quarter and Pantheon Square, where renowned US-born Black entertainer and civil rights activist Josephine Baker was inducted in November 2021.
