Reviews for the The Little Midi Cruise
Great service, got what we asked for, staff helpful, stress free boating
Problem free great service
best holiday i have ever had. whole process from search to booking to arrival and instruction was so relaxed and easy
The staff were always friendly and helpful. I would have liked more information on things to do in the area and how to access transport to get there and back. I was hoping to use the app back in Australia to organize a rough itinerary, but couldn't download it to my samsung tablet.Most of the books written on the Canal du Midi don't give enough information and concentrate on historical background.
We had strong winds for the first few days and suggest others consider the benefits of bow thrusters in their choice of boats.
Perfect for 5 of us, 4 adults and 1 teenager. We were all inexperienced with canal cruising, but soon got in the swing of it all and thoroughly enjoyed negotiating the locks. Cooked on board each night, plenty of space and full facilities.
We marvelled at the beauty of the tree lined canal during early autumn. The light and colour of the leaves were enchanting. We all loved the lock houses, very charming.
We were a family group of 14, Grandparents, Children and grandchildren. One week in a Tuscan villa, 3 days in Venice, one week on Little Midi Cruise, 3 days in Paris and 3 days in Rome. The stay in Tuscany and the visits in the vicinity was one of our highlights, and the boat cruise was the most memorable experience
We cruised slowly, stopped for coffee at some of the locks, had picknick lunches and huge dinners on the boat, went exploring Carcassonne, and drank a lot of wine. The plane trees next to the canal and their shadows on the water was the most beautiful sight, and the farmlands and houses all along the canal were interesting and informative. Chat to the lock keepers and have some coffee, and see what they have to sell. Don't miss the local wines, and visit the castle in Carcassonne. We were a bit short on time, but try to visit some of the farmers along the way. Take a few bikes along, riding on the canal banks is very cool.
