We had a great trip on the Thames from the Benson Base. No issues at all. Lucy and Richard very helpful both on upon arrival and departure. No fuss. The boat was very suitable for 2, "all ship shape and shiny". We had a nice cruise from Benson to Oxford and back.
Hi Stuart, thank you for your feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed your cruise on the River Thames and found our base staff in Benson to be very helpful. We look forward to welcoming you back on board soon!

Все было отлично, однако у нас возникли сложности с английским с некоторыми сотрудниками. Инструкторы не подвели, было все грамотно и оперативно Отличная лодка для семьи (4 человека)

Fantastic week spent cruising on the Shannon. Boats were very well equipped and staff were helpful and accommodating. We'll be back! Had trouble starting this boat on numerous occasions. It would eventually start, but thankfully we weren't in a rush anywhere! Would give it 5 stars for a great holiday!
Dear Mrs M,
Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are pleased to learn you enjoyed your cruise on the River Shannon and were satisfied with the customer service you received.
Thank you for your feedback on the boats - we have passed your comments onto the base teams. Your suggestion for a larger repeat bookers discount has been considered.
We look forward to welcoming you on board with us again soon!
Best wishes, The Le Boat team

They were at the end of the phone to help with any issues and the boat staff on the marina were extremely helpful and kind to our family. The boat was of a perfect size for our family starting out and in excellent condition.

Service very good. Staff at Benson very helpful, and easy to book on the phone Boat an ideal size for 2 or 3 people. Would benefit from some extras like wi fi, 240 v electricity. Is looking a bit tired and old now

We enjoyed our boating experience in Germany with Le Boat. Would make use of Le Boat again (maybe in Canada next year!). BUT we have a list of recommendations/suggestions for the specific base in Germany though! Would also help that the people in South Africa recommend certain things to their clients. Do not know if we must list it here??? Training/instruction must be done by a person that can really speak English and explain properly what one needs to know. Some of the information in the English training manual was not very clear and well explained at all. We did not choose the option to pay "Le Boat" to clean the boat, so we did it ourselves thinking we had to give back the boat in the same condition we received it. When they inspected the boat we were asked why on earth we did it all so perfectly - they clean it anyway after each rental! We really wanted a stand up board - we were told that there were none available, all rented out to people before us! But it was booked and prepaid, if we knew we would have rented it somewhere else beforehand! Suggestions by SA booking office - please suggest to your customers to take along own "toys" / like stand up board / Tubes to trail behind boats etc. Also some insect stuff to spray on boat & on persons, encountered a lot of insects. The outside throttle control on the deck of our boat has to be replaced because it was very strenuous and difficult to use!

Very good , enjoyed the trip, would do again. Beds bunks mattress very thin and hard. This could be improved. Electical sockets not working except use of an invertor which should have been explained at the induction. Nice boat for two or three persons

Good organisation, with really helpful and friendly staff. The boat was ideal for us (two people) although would probably have been a bit cramped for any more... Boat very manageable and good to handle.

Made extra effort to help us moor the first night and were willing to do more if we needed it the next day. Bigger than I expected but got the hang of it.
