Overall we had a fantastic holiday and really enjoyed the experience. We thought the boat was well appointed and very comfortable. Le Boat service was pretty good. Eli in Homps and Sophie in Castelnaudary were excellent. We had a few issues such as bikes having issues (chain falling off, handbrake didn;t work etc), we had no wifi for 5 days (we paid for 10 days), we were only given one set of towels for a 10 night hire, the air conditioner didn't work very well and we had very hot days. However, these were only small things that did not dampen our holiday at all. One major thing is that whil the service at check in was friendly, we felt the training on the boat and how to go through bridges and locks etc was unsatisfactory. We were lucky that we had an experienced boater on board, but without her we would would have not enjoyed our holiday at all - we think more time needs to be spent on instructions for the boat. A fantastic holiday overall and we would highly recommend this to others! Would have liked to have been going in the opposite direction but this direction worked really well!
Hi Deborah, Thank you for your feedback and we are really glad that you had a fantastic holiday overall. I’m really sorry you were disappointed with the initial briefing and the length of the instruction. Our local teams are contactable before and during your cruise to try and make the experience as enjoyable and stress free as possible so it’s disappointing to know you didn’t have the relaxing experience you, and we, would have wanted. If we can be of any further help at all, please feel free to contact our team at cus[email protected]

What a wonderful trip!!! One week with 9 others and we never got in each other’s way on the Horizon 5! So roomy!!! Everything we needed was on hand and the staff was so informative and available. Could not have been better!!! It was a 80th birthday celebration for my dad and he was over the moon!!! We all enjoyed ourselves immensely.

This was our first time doing this type of holiday and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Le Boat is an excellent company to deal with! We can highly recommend them and would like to organise another trip with them at some stage. Our only complaint was that our boat was not ready for us and there was one bike missing. We also ended up having to load the bikes onto the boat ourselves which was not ideal. The missing bike was delivered to us the following morning which was great. The staff in Narbonne where we finished our trip were fantastic-really friendly and helpful! We did this trip as a family (6 of us) which was great fun. Unfortunately we didn't have very nice weather, but we still enjoyed the whole experience.
Hi Stella, thank you so much for your feedback. We're so glad that you had a great holiday and we look forward to welcoming you back on board another cruise in future!

The Horizon 5 boats were outstanding and the LeBoat team ensured that everything was just perfect on each of the two boats we rented. The staff was very responsive to our service request when we needed them and overall they made our trip a great one. Can’t say enough about these boats...they were great. Plenty of room for all 10 passengers. The bow and stern thrusters are awesome and made navigation through the canals and locks much easier. These boats are great for 5 couples looking to enjoy cruising together.

Great trip. Two Horizon 5 boats 9 couples. The boat was perfect, the LeBoat team at Port Cssafieres was very welcoming. Aycan the base manager, Bob the operations manager and Thomas our briefer were very friendly. The Horizon 5 was very comfortable. The team at the end of our trip in Castelnaudary was very efficient. Patrice had given us a suggested itinerary that worked out perfect. Line, Felipe and a young man named Thomas were outstanding. Plenty or room. Storage a little tight so bring soft sided bags. Well stocked.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know you and your party had a wonderful experience on the Canal du Midi. We are so glad we were able to offer you a fantastic vacation and hope you'll cruise with us again soon!

Checking in for the boat was so effortless and the same can be said of checking out when we returned the boat, so simple. Just brilliant, we had a great time.

Excellent all round, especially the service received via the Cape Town office - Ikraam was terrific. We had 10 people on the boat and (to our surprise) not once did it feel at all cramped or crowded. Very comfortable, excellent kitchen amenities, bathrooms a bit tight but perfectly adequate. Boat itself was great - easy to steer - no problems with the locks.
Hi Bradley, Thank you for your feedback. We're so glad that you had a great holiday and we look forward to welcoming you back on board another cruise soon.

The crew at Douelle was top notch. Our boat was ready when we arrived and team members offered good information and answered all questions. They were available throughout our cruise to answer any questions by phone. They were very responsive when we had a small issue with a clogged bow thruster and immediately sent out a tech to fix the issue. Boating holidays are a great way to disconnect from the world. We had a fabulous holiday, free of distractions and full of family time. Mornings were spent walking through villages and visiting wineries. Evenings spent barbecuing topside with friends and enjoying the wine and food purchased along the way. The Horizon 5 was a gorgeous boat (I think we were only the second renters). Tons of room, good sized fridge and well-equipped kitchen. The route offered plenty of opportunity to eat in towns along the way if you didn’t feel like cooking. Our highlight was swimming in the river/waterfalls at Vers, watching the locals play boules and enjoying the best of a summer‘s day.

I think the staff as a whole was very professional as well as being very helpful. One major complaint was the bed mattress it was extremely hard. I would have no problem recommending le boat. The marina and facility were nice. The town of Smith Falls was acceptable and having been to other towns on the canal I can see why Smith Falls was picked.
