We were so happy that we used Leboat for our French canal boat trip. From start to finish they made our vacation great. The booking and payment process was clear and easy to follow. Check in was a nice experience and our week aboard the Royal Classique was wonderful as the boat was clean and easy to operate and the scenery beautiful. Check out was surprisingly quick and efficient. All Leboat employees were fantastic! Thank you Leboat Team! Tawny and Scott We were so happy that we used Leboat for our French canal boat trip.

Good throughout and we had to change to the Decize base at the last moment due to heavy rains closing the Lot, our preferred cruising area. Team were able to get us another boat at short notice. We don't think we will cruise that area of central France (Decize/Migennes) again due to the slow manual lock system and some very dirty and weed laden canals especially on the Canal de Bourgogne. On one occasion we had to wait over two hours for the lock keeper to arrive. A good large boat with plenty of space for six people.

Information was great and accurate and communication was easy The boat was old and tired but well designed for 3 couples. Minor problems included leaking windows and sticking doors. We felt the cushions should be a standard inclusion and not an optional extra. An extension cord would have been useful when moorings were full and we had to moor on bank and couldn't reach the electric plug in. Fortunately we were lent one from a neighbouring boat. More protection for the driver from the sun and rain would have been useful .

There were a number of issues with the boat we hired, and with the service at our departure point. We fed this back to our final destination. In summary, the number of faults with the boat (including not being able to close cabin doors, not being able to open the main hatch in the boat) along with the policy of charging for (usually) standard items as "extras", when the cost was already high, left us less than impressed with the company. The boat was nicely laid out (although the two smaller cabins were very cramped, and two of the bunks extremely difficult to sleep in). Unfortunately there was considerable wear and tear, to the point we couldn't close the curtains, or one of the doors or open the main hatch. Also the steering started leaking and we had to stay in Agens overnight waiting for someone to call us back.

Itinerary was too long for the time allocation: Port Cassafiere to Catelnaudary in 6 days thereby not allowing relaxed cruising. Starter pack is a bad joke with inferior products of no interest. WiFi is a rip-off which hardly functioned. Hot water practically not available on board. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The technical staff responded well and in a reasonable time lines . As the boat was missing some of the listed inventory I did have to push to get replacements (like hangers )as there were none aboard .It appears that no one checked the inventory before turning over the boat. An old boat showing it's age and abuse. The rear cabins are very tight. The engine and transmission worked very well.
