Everything went well from booking to the end of our holiday. Yes I would recommend Le Boat at Laggan and I would cruise with you again. Everything went well from start to finish.

Could not fault the service at the Decize base. Everything we requested were met including booking our taxis to Paris from the end base etc We were there for half a day waiting for our friend and we were welcomed to their facilities including showers/coffee/tea etc and provided free wifis. The compound too had huge trees which provided great shade for a picnic. Boat was ready early & were told we could head off if we want or put our luggage in. The facilities at the Chatillon Sur Loire base was not as good but the receptionist went all the way to collect a camera we left at a restaurant in Saint Satur after confirming it was there the evening before! The fridge was not working( apparently we were the first for the season) but it was replaced and we had a punctured bicycle tire along the way and again was replaced promptly. The boat was clean & tidy & in good condition however they missed one person’s linen supply and bed & quilt was left for you to make up. Also we were surprised that although the utensils etc were comprehensive but they do not provide the essentials like dishwashing liquid, sponge/scorers, soap/shampoo/hand wash and only one roll of toilet paper per bathroom for one week! Would not have minded if we were told beforehand but only found out when we looked arround and meant we were making trips to the supermarket as we realised! The boat was easy to manoeuvre per husband. We had a lovely,relaxing cruise. Informations given were a title out of date or maybe it’s shoulder season because in the smaller villages it was hard to find restaurant or food supply so stock up at the supermarket at the base!! Bakeries fortunately easy to find. Most bigger towns or attractions except for Saint Satur were at least 2.5 to 4.5 km away, so handy to have the bicycles! Locks are fascinating and many spectators too! But the novelty does wear off and make sure you allow time particularly during busy seasons! Sometimes we had to phone the lock keepers as a few times they were not there. It’s worth going pass Chatillon Sur Loire to go through the aquaduct at Briare so allow time for that. Great experience and certainly relaxing!! Great service and comfortable boat and most relaxing way to see parts of france

On the basis that all suppliers of services can always improve, overall the service was very good, although there were some difficulties gaining email answers on occasion during the booking phase. With a party of four older travelers, in Europe for two months, the three-cabin crusader gave us good space for baggage storage. Given it's age and design, the boat met our expectations. Consideration might be given however, to updating the top-deck sunshade from a single often ineffective umbrella, to the newer style of sun protection available on the Salsa, Calypso and Horizon craft. The lack of a shore-pwered water heating option with these older craft is also a limitation.
