We had a fantastic experience time on our boat trip. It was a first for all of us and everything was perfect, except maybe for the weather but not much Left Boat could do about that! The boats are equipped with everything you could be need, which was great. The boat was really lovely, spotlessly clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. There was surprisingly lots of room even with 6 adults and a dog on board.

Everything went well from booking to the end of our holiday. Yes I would recommend Le Boat at Laggan and I would cruise with you again. Everything went well from start to finish.

Could not fault the service at the Decize base. Everything we requested were met including booking our taxis to Paris from the end base etc We were there for half a day waiting for our friend and we were welcomed to their facilities including showers/coffee/tea etc and provided free wifis. The compound too had huge trees which provided great shade for a picnic. Boat was ready early & were told we could head off if we want or put our luggage in. The facilities at the Chatillon Sur Loire base was not as good but the receptionist went all the way to collect a camera we left at a restaurant in Saint Satur after confirming it was there the evening before! The fridge was not working( apparently we were the first for the season) but it was replaced and we had a punctured bicycle tire along the way and again was replaced promptly. The boat was clean & tidy & in good condition however they missed one person’s linen supply and bed & quilt was left for you to make up. Also we were surprised that although the utensils etc were comprehensive but they do not provide the essentials like dishwashing liquid, sponge/scorers, soap/shampoo/hand wash and only one roll of toilet paper per bathroom for one week! Would not have minded if we were told beforehand but only found out when we looked arround and meant we were making trips to the supermarket as we realised! The boat was easy to manoeuvre per husband. We had a lovely,relaxing cruise. Informations given were a title out of date or maybe it’s shoulder season because in the smaller villages it was hard to find restaurant or food supply so stock up at the supermarket at the base!! Bakeries fortunately easy to find. Most bigger towns or attractions except for Saint Satur were at least 2.5 to 4.5 km away, so handy to have the bicycles! Locks are fascinating and many spectators too! But the novelty does wear off and make sure you allow time particularly during busy seasons! Sometimes we had to phone the lock keepers as a few times they were not there. It’s worth going pass Chatillon Sur Loire to go through the aquaduct at Briare so allow time for that. Great experience and certainly relaxing!! Great service and comfortable boat and most relaxing way to see parts of france

It was great considering the language barrier as well. The boat was clean and the run-through quite thorough although a lot of information to take in all at once. Would have been beneficial to be advised that hiring a boat with thrusters would be a better choice for those of us without experience. Bit dated but overall very comfortable. We needed thrusters though so anyone with little experience would make their trip more enjoyable with a better equipped boat.

boat broke but fixed quite promptly. Could have done with a few more mooring sites and some a bit short on bollards. More Encouragement for people to moor stern on would free up more space. maybe optimistic to expect people without experience to cope; fortunately we had two experienced helms fair but engine failed and leak in one cabib window

We would certainly recommend LeBoat and this was our fourth trip with them. The service at registration and at the base were outstanding. The Holland trip was our most challenging because of the nature of the waterways in Holland and would recommend that this not be your first adventure with boating. We know this boat well and the configuration fits our needs perfectly. It is, however an old boat with a minimum of luxuries. We enjoyed it but might not suit all.
