Barbara Beck; Midi Canal, June 2017
The boat was as expected and rates a 7/10: Galley was well-equipped and the teak table on the bridge was large and easily accommodated 8-10 people.
The Canal du Midi was as expected: Tree-lined and quiet
Found Hotels Afloat through a web search: Rating 9/10 for attention to details and site content.
May book again
Jack Durner. Loire Canal
The boat provided plenty of room for our group. I rate it 8/10.
We appreciated the quiet countrside cruising with interesting towns along the way.
Chris Berkley. Southern Burgundy
The 1500FB actually exceeded expectation for newness and outfitting of kitchen etc
Comfortable, roomy common area inside boat and on top deck.
Good hot water supply for showers. Good sized fridge.
I rate the boat a 10- highly recommend.
Cruise route: St Leger sur Dheune - Loisy
Many lovely towns to stop at- was able to visit several markets. No stretches without a place to visit. Many wine producers in the first half (St Leger to Chalon)
Very impressed with the Locaboat staff who set us up at St Leger, and the response to a mechanical issue which was promptly repaired at Tournus. It was good to have you (Emma) as an additional contact and you were also very responsive to our questions and helpful in selecting our route.
I would advise other travelers on this route that actually almost all wine makers were shuttered for both Sunday and the Bastille Day Monday holiday, so if visiting those is a priority that wouldn’t be the ideal week.
Charles Field. Canal du Midi
What did you most appreciate about the boat?
I rate the boat an 8/10
Cruise route: Argens - Lattes
As expected, BUT, IF WE DID IT AGAIN, WE WOULD START WEST, TO AVOID SOME OF THE URBAN AREAS.
10 DAYS TO COMPLETE 8 DAY ITINERARY WAS JUST RIGHT FOR US
The route is BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL
THE DETAIL I MENTION IN MY Trip Advisor REVIEW IS INFO I WOULD VERY MUCH WANT OTHERS TO HAVE WHEN PLANNING AND ON THE CANAL
Would you book with us again?
I WAS OFFERED OPTIONS, OF ROUTE AND BOATS, WITH ENOUGH INFO TO BE CONFIDENT OF A GREAT TRIP. EMMAs RESPONSES TO EMAILS WERE TIMELY, AND ACCURATE.
Please add any additional comments about the Hotels Afloat service or any other issues
