Reviews for the The Gouda Short Break
Good overall, boat yard on arrival was poor. We booked in for early arrival and our boat wasn't ready until gone 1 pm. So we had to hang around in the cold.
Excellent scenery and weather
Our boat travels with Le Boat have always been great! The people, places and experiences in Holland were memorable. Our Royal Mystique "45" was clean, well equipped and everything in it worked very well throughout the journey. On this last trip however, our boat was well dented, banged up and with out a bimini top from a previous renter's accident. I am certain that there was little that the staff could do in this situation, but when a client selects a deluxe boat he/she expects a quality boat in and out. Besides this minor complaint, as always, we are looking forward to our next Le Boat holiday very soon. Thanks Jose Ramos
Excellent and friendly service. Convenient locations and itineraries.
Comment fromThe Le Boat Team
Hi Jose, thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are sorry to read that you experienced some problems on this trip. We will look into this and hope to welcome you back onboard next year!
all contact was excellent and the technical department Ralph (I think is his name) was fantastic trying to repair the bow thruster.
Generally everything was what we expected.
Appropriate sized and well appointed boat for the canals we cruised.
Booking process was easy and the whole experience great value.
Hired Sheba boat for four days, but was only allowed to leave Vinkeveen marina for two days total, due to limited lock operation times - which we were never informed about beforehand.Vinkeveen LeBoat staff refused to arrange local taxi from the train station (just stating that it was "impossible" for them to do it for us). We ended up stranded for two hours with all our luggage until local people directed us to the bus service. Very little directions or advice provided in English for English-speaking customers.
Lovely waterways and villages to explore. Unfortunately only able to use LeBoat vessel two out of four days paid for.
