brilliant from start to finish. Lady who I booked with was extremely helpful. The lady on check in and out was very efficient. The man who gave us the boat demonstration was informative and very helpful. Also, anytime we called during our trip with questions or queries the response rate was very quick. All in all super trip and will be returning again next year. had everything we needed and easy to manage

Excellent service from start to finish. I would have no hesitation recommending Le Boat/Emerald Star to family or friends. The boat was really spacious and well equipped

Needed more instruction, especially on locks & mooring up. Needed 3 adults not 2 with all the locks to Carcassonne, by end though experts! Cruised back 9.5 hrs in one day, 25 locks, with 2 children (7 & 11) onboard. Boat great to live on. Something different to do with the Grandkids. Travelled on Eurotunnel for first time too, which was easy & enjoyable & cheap.
Hi Jill, Thank you for the positive and constructive feedback. I'm really glad that you enjoyed your Carcassonne cruise. Locks are a really fun way to remain active on your cruise as well as a great bonding activity too! It sounds like you were pros' by the end of your cruise! We hope that we can welcome you on board again soon! All the best, The Le Boat Team

Excellent boat introduction and service pack with detailed maps. Boat was everything we hoped it to be and got excellent response from requests for help from office at St Gilles when we needed it. Practical and efficient handing over and back of the boat. Will definitely think of using Le Boat again. We loved the variety of environment along the Rhone, Sete and canal du Midi. Bird life was fab. Boat was great for our party of four people
Hi David, Thanks for the lovely feedback. It's great to hear that you were happy with the Clipper and that you were happy with the service you received from our teams. We hope to welcome you on board again soon! All the best, The Le Boat Team
