Went for the midnight trip (after a bit of confusion with ticket times), the light show was very well done, especially the parts in the tunnels. As other people have said, there's not much consideration given for english speakers, but was enjoyable enough regardless. Possibly...More

This boat trip was not what I was expecting. You are taken through two different long tunnels that go under the city. Projected on the ceiling of the tunnels are light shows that I thought were juvenile. I would not repeat this tour.More

nice quaint boat trip round Chalons en champagne. Only thing was that the guide spoke in French although we were given a leaflet I. English but we felt that we missed a lot by not being able to understand him with fuller detail.

Thank you for your message. The translation leaflets are quite detailed but we understand you felt you were missing on something. We hope you enjoyed the tour and that we will see you again to discover the new light show going on during this tour.

Very pleasant and relaxing trip. You need to book and get the simple guide leaflet in English as the tour is in French. I felt that Chalon was better by boat than walking around!

We had the time, so we made the visit. We enjoyed it, but you can come to Chalons and skip this if your time is pressed.

End of the season so only operating at weekends. Gives a different perspective of the town especially through the tunnels. Only in French so look and dream!
