Seema Dutta said:

Citazione  Wonderful way to see the countryside! You can't be in a rush on a trip like this, so we just meandered down the Canal and stopped whenever and wherever we wanted. Excellent food and wine and all the people we met were great!  Quotemark

Citazione Five star service every time! We have booked holidays with Le Boat for over 15 years and always had a five star experience. If we need help before or during our holiday they have always been there with a smile!  Quotemark
