Reviews for the The Canal du Midi Cruise
Boat was excellent. well outfitted. Staff at pickup and drop off very helpful.would recommend Le Boat and Royal Mystique perfect for 2 couples
great having lock keepers on this section. Downhill better for lock beginners. Biked into villages. Took 2 weeks so had lots of time to explore
I was impressed with the personal level of service: first, from Maggie in Florida, and then upon our arrival in Castelnaudary, from Maggie and Matthew at that base. I felt that the base in Homps was a little overwhelmed by the number of customers descending on them, so they were not able to show the same level of personal service and patience.
Countryside and the fascinating city of Carcassonne
Everything was excellent except for the fact that we paid R1020 for early check-in but could only get the boat released by 14h00
Very nice route in terms of the many small towns with markets and shops directly on the canal
Le Boat staff all very helpful. The boat was very reliable but helped having an experienced person with us to deal with pump outs etc. Watch the water use and keep filling up.
Well equipped boat with excellent comfort for 6 people. Boat very controllable and manoeuvrableFor such a big boat. The weather was somewhat disappointing, perhaps a little early in the season in early May. The journey was easily completed in the time and we in fact went a day further and turned back round.
Maggie Privat and the others were most helpful by phone and email regarding information and helping us choose which trip and boat. The actual pickup and return of the boats took a long time, and the shoreside facilities were sub-par. We woulddefinitely recommend this company and would do another LeBoat trip. Taxi transfers were marvelous. We enjoyed the whole trip tremendously.
Very scenic, excellent restaurants on shore in the evening. The locks were fun.
