Reviews for the The Classic Midi Cruise
We had a wonderful time on the Canal du Midi and the weather was very kind. We found the support given by the Le Boat team excellent!
We stopped in virtually every town and some of our friends cycled from lock to lock.We spent a wonderful evening at Plan B restaurant in Le Somail. A night was also spent on the canal bank before Capestang. Idyllic.We took the canal down to Narbonne and loved it. Beautiful scenery.
The route time and distance was very good. The vessel itself was lacking, slightly from old age and use. For example, the fridge definitely needed service; we were told that the water gauges did not work - too bad as it would be helpful if they did. Our party of four agreed that arrival in Cassafieres could have been better organized; that is, staff direction on where to "park" the boat in the crowded harbour.
What more could one want than to be in the South of France?
We were well looked after at the pick up and drop off. Only problem was the replacement bike wheel took a day and a half to arrive so no cycling possible during that period, very frustrating
Expensive with tall the add ons for bikes wifi and fuel. A good holiday nonetheless.

We used the web site e to book, had no problems, everything went exactly as it should.
We had 6 on board and apart from 2 breakdowns which were attended to, one promptly the second not quite so promptly, they should have advised us that they were going to be. 4 hours, if we had known we could have left the boat and gone for a bike ride, all the men stayed with the boat which was a waste of time. Important that people have bikes as it means you can see a lot more of the countryside, some of the bikes needed a little attention, the back brake was stuck on one bike, made it pretty hard work. We would all do it again, throughly enjoyed the experience.
professional, good information, trip met all expectations. would book with le boat again.
guide and map were excellent for navigation and planning stop overs and village visits. fantastic weather and scenery.
