A gentle trip up and down part of the Dordogne river for about an hour. Live French commentary but headsets provided for an English version. Nice views and quite relaxing. Only 10 euros pp.

beautiful way to see this amazing coastline, if you don't fancy doing a canoe trip. Audio explanation and story of the river, taking in the history.

There is much to see in La Roque and much of it involves walking up steep streets. For a less strenous tour I recommend a river tour. The tour takes an hour in an open Dordogne style river boat. The boats are spacious and have...More

This is that kind of tour you ask ourself if it is worth it or not. It is a short one (one hour) that gives you a different perspective of the Dordogne river and it's surroundings. You will hear about the history of the city...More

Very pleasant boat trip with fascinating views of castles and pretty towns. Audio guides are offered, but seemed like the excursion presented by staff on board was more informative and entertaining, while audio guide was just silent most of the time.

A lovely way to spend an hour on the river! Very nice guide. I learnt a lot, even though it wasn’t my first gabare trip. Definitely worth doing, even if you have done a canoe trip - it’s not at all the same! Merci beaucoup.

This was a seven mile journey alang the Valley of Chateaux. The country side is very rugged. It is dotted with magificent chateaux situated high up the cliffs. Amazing

We bought tickets at the booth adjacent to the pier. If it is peak season suggest you buy tickets for a later boat and have a coffee nearby. That way you can come back early enough to pick a seat near the front

Sorry, misspelled the boat name. Meant Gabarres Caminade. Where does one buy tickets in advance?

No, there are no stops scheduled along the route. Most of the river journey is along undeveloped river banks so I would imagine the possibility for stops would be difficult.
