The History and Heritage Cruise

Aquitaine, France

Reviews for the The History and Heritage Cruise

We were not so lucky with the weather; 4 days rain and 3 days hot. We learned a lot although I can run a ski-boat, tugboats and small cargo-ships, but locks are a good learning school ! Also why it is not good to have two captains on a ship ;-)) Your marriage must be good and stay that after this holiday. We learned a lot of the time that went on a lot slower and the France diners are good.
Don't be in a hurry, especialy NOT at the locks ! Sometime is there current from the side, just when you enter at slow speeds a lock, which pushing your boat in a other direction then you have planned and if you have to much speed this happens with a greater speed too !
Kommer nog inte att rekommendera Le Boat. Vi fick ett bra bemötande när vi hämtade ut båten, men inte när vi lämnade tillbaka. Vi var missnöjda med en del saker, tex var cyklarna vi hyrde trasiga, internet fungerade inte, det luktade i båten och dom överdebiterade oss för bensinen. Personalen verkade inte bry sig om våra synpunkter. Vi påpekade allt, men dom svarade knappt. Tråkigt.
Byn är väldigt liten och saknar butik. Man kan inte handla det som behövs för resan där utan får åka till någon annan by där det finns en större butik.Personalen på Le Boat var trevlig när vi hämtade, men inte när vi lämnade tillbaka.
Having had three previous cruises with Le Boat we were expecting a wonderful holiday. Unfortunately this time there were no memorable experiences partially down to the poor weather.
Due to heavy rainfall we were not allowed to navigate La Garonne hence there weren't many interesting villages or countryside. Most villages only had one restaurant (mainly pizzerias or cafes) and weren't always open so if you had not stocked up on produce you went hungry! Valence d'Agen was possibly the best town en route but the cafe/restaurant in Damazan was very good.
