We spent a pleasant couple of hours on the Canal du Midi. in this boat which was clean and spacious. The lock crossing each way was a real experience. The captains commentary in both French and English was extremely informative. We wouldnt hesitate to return.

The captain narrates in various languages. This is great value and wiles away the hours gently. The locks are interesting and the tour just the right length

The boat was immaculate, very clean and well kept. The seating however would have been much more comfortable for a 2 hour cruise, if there had been some padding to sit on other than hard wooden benches. The commentary both in French and English was...More
