Reviews for the The Toulouse Cruise
Staff at the Call Centre and at the hire base were all very friendly and professional. Boat performed well, without any problems, despite not being one of the newer ones.Intend to use them again next year.
Love the Canal du Midi and this was our 3rd visit. Unfortunately, the nearest supermarket (Spar) wasn't shown on the advance literature but (fortunately) we found it before we went to the hire base. Be warned that, despite a taxi rank in the town centre, taxis are hard to come by - even if you telephone to book. Apart from that, the canal and the lock-keepers were delightful. Excellent restaurants around, although hiring cycles does give more scope for shopping and eating.
We found our boat not in good repair. Because the engine was overheating, we had to call repair. When they came they said it was fixed though one of our party tried to tell them that something else needed to be done. Sure enough, within half a day it was overheating again necessitating another call to repair. We lost two days of our trip and were not able to get to our original destination. When we called to say we were not going to be able to get to our original destination in our allotted time, we were told we had to. We told them we couldn't and returned the boat to the nearest Le Boat depot. At least we didn't leave it in the middle of the canal.

Hi Bevan, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that you had problems with an overheating engine and apologize for the disruption to your cruising plans.
The crew at base (on and off the boat) were extremely professional and helpful and we would definitely use them again.
Pleasant easy to deal with organisation. Helpful staff at all stages. Will come again.
Great experience, a safe introduction to the French Waterways
