Easy way to feel being eat the beautiful river. Guide speaks in French so a few of us had headphones for English. His script was a lot longer than ours! He added some tidbits he knew were not on our tape which was helpful. Weather...More

Rain was not forecast, so took the edge off a nice boat ride along the water of the Dordogne. The commentary in English was information over load and so could not take everything in. However, the view of the village and chateau in the rocks...More

This past May when the waters of the Dordogne were high, we enjoyed a relaxing one hour round trip boat ride with English audio guide headphones. The river front village of La Roque-Gageac is very picturesque as you travel slowly past the village. You continue...More

Beautiful scenery and architecture ruined by the masses bathing and more in the shallow waters. The commentary on the headsets is brief the French tour guide loud and comprehensive. Not worth the money.

This is one of the main things to do in Rocque Gageac. It was a very short trip and due to the low level of the river due to hot weather we could tell it was difficult to manoeuvre. The commentary is all in French...More

Enchanted river. We came to view this place at the end of summer. So there were not too many visitors. This helped us to enjoy the river the birds and autumn red leafs. We had a nice cup of coffee and loved every moment.

Don’t do this if you only speak English. The Guide talks and jokes throughout in French but the English tape given to English speakers is on only 25% of the time. It was disappointing and frustrating. I was sorry I went.

I think it may be difficult to navigate getting and off the boat but I would certainly check with them as there may be ramps etc
