Our Horizon 4 was absolutely super comfortable, well equipped and we did not have any problems with the engine. Going along the rivers and canals is refreshing, giving us a kind of cut out from work and all problems. All members of our journey were happy while watching nature. This was absolutely grat time. We surely will soon repid such a trip. as we said before this boat is really grat and comfortable

The staff at Smiths Falls are incredibly helpful. All you need to do is ask for what you want. I wanted to get out of Smiths Falls quickly on the first day so our crew would have some time to get to know one another without observers and feeling like we were "Packed-in." I asked for a departure that allowed that, and they set it up. Afterwards, I was looking for a place to go to dinner in or near Ottawa and was given not just great suggestions that fit the variety of tastes and budgets on the boat, but was also given specific, time-saving directions - printed out! This is the perfect canal boat for people who want to try out canal boating in luxury. The important things like power, navigation, steering, water, showers, flushing toilets!, refrigerators, battery systems, and lighting cannot be better. The small things that can be improved are very small. The only thing worth mentioning is that the Captains seat back-cushion on the top deck needs to be more comfortable. We used pillows, but they slip out of the way and the back-support bar creates an unnecessary and uncomfortable pressure point after 30 minutes. If you have never done a canal boat vacation, rent this boat and bring a cooler for your recreational beverages. I've rented in Northern Minnesota and Southern France and nothing comes close to this boat. If you don't love the boat, don't do another Canal Boat Vacation - the boats don't get any better.

Le Boat's service was excellent. Everything was great. Had a few recommendations, of which none would have been a deal breaker: More kitchen towels Better explanation of the sanitation dumping process A few starter bathroom supplies would be nice, i.e. shampoo, soap, etc. More detailed description of where the office is for Le Boat in Chertsey

Thorough and efficient. excellent tour and way to explore southern france.
Thanks for providing your feedback. We are sorry you did not feel you had enough information on all there is to see and experience along the UNESCO Canal du Midi. We would have hoped the Midi Guide would have been of help in planning your trip. It should have been send to you electronically before your departure for planning purposes and a magazine offered to you at the base upon your arrival. You can see it here: https://www.leboat.com/sites/default/files/lb_midi_guide_eng.pdf We are very glad that you enjoyed your cruise despite this and hope to see you cruising with us again soon!
