What a wonderful trip!!! One week with 9 others and we never got in each other’s way on the Horizon 5! So roomy!!! Everything we needed was on hand and the staff was so informative and available. Could not have been better!!! It was a 80th birthday celebration for my dad and he was over the moon!!! We all enjoyed ourselves immensely.

Great trip. Two Horizon 5 boats 9 couples. The boat was perfect, the LeBoat team at Port Cssafieres was very welcoming. Aycan the base manager, Bob the operations manager and Thomas our briefer were very friendly. The Horizon 5 was very comfortable. The team at the end of our trip in Castelnaudary was very efficient. Patrice had given us a suggested itinerary that worked out perfect. Line, Felipe and a young man named Thomas were outstanding. Plenty or room. Storage a little tight so bring soft sided bags. Well stocked.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know you and your party had a wonderful experience on the Canal du Midi. We are so glad we were able to offer you a fantastic vacation and hope you'll cruise with us again soon!

The Horizon 5 boats were outstanding and the LeBoat team ensured that everything was just perfect on each of the two boats we rented. The staff was very responsive to our service request when we needed them and overall they made our trip a great one. Can’t say enough about these boats...they were great. Plenty of room for all 10 passengers. The bow and stern thrusters are awesome and made navigation through the canals and locks much easier. These boats are great for 5 couples looking to enjoy cruising together.

Checking in for the boat was so effortless and the same can be said of checking out when we returned the boat, so simple. Just brilliant, we had a great time.

Excellent all round, especially the service received via the Cape Town office - Ikraam was terrific. We had 10 people on the boat and (to our surprise) not once did it feel at all cramped or crowded. Very comfortable, excellent kitchen amenities, bathrooms a bit tight but perfectly adequate. Boat itself was great - easy to steer - no problems with the locks.
Hi Bradley, Thank you for your feedback. We're so glad that you had a great holiday and we look forward to welcoming you back on board another cruise soon.

The crew at Douelle was top notch. Our boat was ready when we arrived and team members offered good information and answered all questions. They were available throughout our cruise to answer any questions by phone. They were very responsive when we had a small issue with a clogged bow thruster and immediately sent out a tech to fix the issue. Boating holidays are a great way to disconnect from the world. We had a fabulous holiday, free of distractions and full of family time. Mornings were spent walking through villages and visiting wineries. Evenings spent barbecuing topside with friends and enjoying the wine and food purchased along the way. The Horizon 5 was a gorgeous boat (I think we were only the second renters). Tons of room, good sized fridge and well-equipped kitchen. The route offered plenty of opportunity to eat in towns along the way if you didn’t feel like cooking. Our highlight was swimming in the river/waterfalls at Vers, watching the locals play boules and enjoying the best of a summer‘s day.

Great service from reception at Castlenaudary, very friendly and informative briefing in the office however we found the technician to be less helpful and very flippant when showing us around the controls of the boat and it’s handling. Great experience although the boat we had was not at all comfortable.
Hi David, Thank you for your positive and constructive feedback. We are really happy to hear that you were well looked after by the base team, but are very sorry that the technician's customer service didn't meet your expectations. We really care about you having an amazing experience from start to finish, so we will pass your feedback on to the team. We would love to welcome you on board again soon. All the best The Le Boat Team

All the arrangements went perfectly. The boat was ready on our arrival and the base staff most helpful. The same was true for the handover at the end of the holiday. The design of the boat is excellent in concept. However our boat had a number of defects which should have been corrected before we collected it. Also the mattresses were very very hard and if renting again I would advise all our guests to bring their own mattress toppers.
Dear Mr G, Thanks for the positive feedback. It's great to hear that you enjoyed your holiday from start to finish and that the team took good care of you. We would love to welcome you on board again soon! All the best The Le Boat Team

Generally a great experience. Service did differ according to different boat yards. Port Cassefiers was excellent. The accommodation was very tight. The saloon and upstairs worked well but the bedrooms were very small
