Wir hatten einen absolut gelungenen Urlaub! Angefangen hat das Ganze schon mit einem perfekten Service bei unserer Buchungen. Einen besonderen Dank hier an Laurie Hudson-Craig! Die Übernahme unseres Bootes, eine Horizon 3 ab Smith Falls war völlig unkompliziert und alle Mitarbeiter an der Station waren super nett. Wir haben die 10 Tage an Bord absolut genossen. Der Rideau Canal ist als Fahrgebiet super einfach und angenehm - und vor allem im Juni noch ziemlich ruhig und kein bisschen überlaufen oder hektisch. Das Boot war in einem super Zustand. Die Ausstattung hat keine Wünsche offen gelassen.

The whole staff was so friendly and helpful from checkin to checkout. Made for a great experience. Boat was great except that the one cabin is way to big and the other 2 cabins and space are way to small. The boat is great to drive and the batteries are wonderful. Should put a water hose on the boat. Could put more storage on the boat.
Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your getaway on the Rideau Canal and appreciate your observations and feedback. We hope you'll cruise with us again soon.

Dear Mrs W,
Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are delighted to learn you enjoyed your cruise with us on the Midi and were satisfied with the customer service you received.
We are sorry about the BBQ running out of gas on your boat. We have taken action on the matter and forwarded your comments to the base team to rectify the issue. Please accept our sincerest apologies for the disappointment caused.
A great way to get plenty of information is to order our Canal du Midi guide - this includes everything you need to know about the towns, attractions and restaurants along the canal. For future trips, please feel free to download the guides from our website - they are extremely helpful.
We hope to welcome you on board with us again soon.
Best wishes, The Le Boat team.

We had an amazing holiday with Le Boat Canada on our Horizon. Everything was fabulous and the staff were super helpful, without exception. Thanks to everyone who made our trip so special! The boat was really easy to turn 360 degrees in a small space and was very comfortable, with everything you could possibly need on board. The forward cabin was huge and the loungers integrated to the sun deck were our favourite spot!
Dear Mrs Gardner,
Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are delighted to learn you enjoyed your cruise in Canada with us and were satisfied with the customer service you received.

Our Le Boat experience was amazing! From start to finish, everyone we dealt with was extremely friendly, helpful and professional! All of this, coupled with gorgeous vistas, cute towns, and perfect weather, made for the ideal vacation. We cruised from Smith Falls to Merrickville then back through Smith Falls to Westport vía Portland. The list of start/end points below did not include Canadian ports. Wonderful time! Can’t wait to go again next year!
