Le boat did a fantastic job. Boat in good condition and well prepared. Briefing just adequate. Le boat were recommended to us and we would be happy to do the same. Our boat was in good condition and was well prepared. Loved the Lot River with all it's varied scenery and amazing towns / villages. Bikes were really useful and also in good condition. Beware that bare boat hire is just that, not even a spare roll of toilet paper.(Annoying when you are travelling by train / taxi). Only hitch was the briefing which was a little rushed and did not cover everything on board. (We had a problem with the gas and had to put in a remote service call. The service man who came out was not amused and told us we should have been able to solve the problem ourselves by resetting the gas bottle. As we were not even told where the gas bottle was located, let alone how to reset it, we felt this inconvenient service call was of their own making). Otherwise a memorable experience.

We were very happy with the service. Kate in the Australian office was very helpful. When our itinerary had to change due to low water she communicated this in a timely manner. We felt that the briefing at Decize was a little too brief and that there was no explanation of safety features on the boat..eg how to use fire extinguishers. One of the best holidays I have had.

Our local teams are contactable before and during your cruise to try and make the experience as enjoyable and stress-free as possible so it’s disappointing to know you didn’t have the relaxing experience you, and we, would have wanted.

We had a fantastic short break on the Caprice from Portumna. Excellent service at base both when collecting and returning the boat and particular mention to Timmy and Sarah. Also to Ivan who kindly showed us some of the other available rental boats - we have already booked another trip next Easter based on this. The Caprice was a comfortable boat and everything worked well, the shore power was a bonus so we could have plenty of heat and hot water. I would happily recommend Emerald Star to anyone. Great trip - we really enjoyed ourselves and we wil be back

Very friendly staff, boat was well prepared and ready for us. Excellent handover as well. Bit of a delay for the boat handover, but that was not the yards fault, about 6 groups turned up together! This is a stunning area to cruise, the whole experience was wonderful. This was a once in a lifetime holiday for us, the boat was perfect and even the weather was fairly well behaved! Stunning scenery, excellent fun through the locks, but also, so tranquil whilst cruising. There were only 2 of us on Caprice, I am not sure if it would suit a family with young children as the steps up to the top deck could be an issue, would be OK for 4 adults I think, but no more than that. Nice toilets and showers, cooker and fridge we're fine.as well.

The people at LeBoat in Nieuwpoort we’re without exception helpful and much fun. The boat was perfect for four people, with comfortable, albeit small sleeping quarters. The canals were lovely, as was the Ijzer River. The towns were beautiful and the experience in Ypres moving. Bruges was s highlight!
