We had a GREAT trip... loved the beauty of the canal and the plane trees.
Most appreciated part of the boat: Electronic toilets.

Here goes
the superb weather we had
the beautiful countryside
the peace & tranquility slow boat travel brings
the overall layout of the boat
the friendliness of the lock-keepers and people in general
the great restaurant meals (when we managed to find ones
that were open)
The food & drink we bought along the way
the van driver that brought us to & from the boat

Dear Emma, The boat was very comfortable and in first class shape. The rental agency was very helpful.
All-in-all very satisfactory. Kind regards, Bob

R Eastman. River Saone

The boat was as expected, appreciated it's size & many bathrooms
We rate it a 9/10
The Nivernais route was better than we expected, and loved the quietness. You need to Stock up well before sailing, very few shopping opportunities on route. Some shops closed.
Found Hotels Afloat on the internet. We rate you a 7/10 and will book again. Good attention to detail

Charlotte Reid. Nivernais Canal

For our trip on the Canal du Centre in July of 2013 we used a Quattro Prestige 49. We liked how spacious the boat was and the kitchen so we could cook full dinners easily. Having a bathroom with each sleeping quarter was really nice too. There is plenty of space on top to relax and enjoy the passing scenery. Working with you was easy as you always reply promptly and were able to provide us with helpful information regarding route choice, boat choice and other information. Gunther at the Digoin base was great and quickly responded to any questions we had while on the trip.
