Testimonials for the Continentale

Bill and Beth Gembus. Canal du Midi

Good layout for our group.. we rate the boat 8.5/10
Cruising from Trebes to Narbonne, we liked the small villages, beauty of the canal and wine-growing areas alongside.
We would book again... Helpful and pleasant people at both ends of our cruise.
Friends of ours recommended you Emma: I found it most helpful indeed to ask questions of you during the months leading up to our cruise, and to have such immediate responses. The personal touch was assuring and reassuring.

Meredith Louden. River Yonne & Nivernais canal

It was all lovely, but the highlight was Auxerre. I knew it was a large town but we were in awe when we came round the bend in the river and saw the city. We spent two nights there and wished we had spent more time. Also loved the river.
Thank you again for all of your help.
Janet (Finan) was correct in recommending you

Mark Hall. Loire canal

Emma made the whole process very easy, from payment schedules to helping us organize transportation to and from the staging area.. We asked many many questions during the month leading up to the trip and she was always very prompt in her replies..We will do it again!
At trips end the check out crew was very helpful and friendly... We did our own cleaning to save money and there were no problems with reimbursements of deposits etc. 
The boat was very comfortable... We found the 3 cabin for 2 couples ideal.. It was nice to have the extra room for bags etc. Fridge worked like a charm and was large enough to hold food plus the very important bottles of wine we picked up along the way. Easy to steer and easy to take through the locks. Virtually idiot proof and SO MUCH FUN!

David Dwyer, River Yonne; August 2016

The boat was spacious; we rate it 9/10
Cruised from Migennes to Sens and back: Appreciated that there were
relatively few locks
We found you on line, and rate you 10/10. YES, we would book again!
We achieved our aim,but would have loved one extra day !
