Reviews for the The Classic Midi Cruise
We were well looked after at the pick up and drop off. Only problem was the replacement bike wheel took a day and a half to arrive so no cycling possible during that period, very frustrating
Expensive with tall the add ons for bikes wifi and fuel. A good holiday nonetheless.

Service at both boatyards was very good.Staff very friendly and helpfulMy only criticism is the process for checking in which takes ages. So much of the processing should be pre-prepared and then only needs confirming and signing on checking in. This would speed it up a lot and avoid queues of customers waiting to get their boats. Very frustrating.
Excellent route on the canal. Would recommend to others to do this route, downstream and one-way - well worth it. Did it in early April where weather not that warm at times and leaves not yet on the trees. Best time to do it is early May.
Fantastic service. Great boat briefing and information. Loved the experience
The real France - the hidden gems
Very bad reception at Homps as argument with older woman on reception about a taxi they booked for us which was not at the airport to meet us so we took another that was more expensive and she was very rude and said we would have to pay anyway, which was not the welcome we expected at the start of an expensive holiday. The other lady seem to have no knowledge of the items eg wifi etc that we had booked and paid for so I had to produce my invoice. We were told about two weeks before that our Vision 4 was not available so we were to be upgraded to Vision 4 SL this did not happen. Also no hairdryer onboard as promised and three woman unable to do hair for a week. The reception at Port Cassafiers was wonderful. So helpful and friendly, could not have been more pleasant.
Really great holiday once we got started. Plenty to see, loved the boat. Great places to stop along the way. A really interesting holiday with great friends. Enjoyed the locks which were no problem and the fabulous French countryside and people we met en route were so friendly.
Very good company and well managed
Very good route only problem was limited moorings especially in the main centres. Most appeared to be taken up by larger boats
