Reviews for the The Classic Midi Cruise
We had a wonderful time on the Canal du Midi and the weather was very kind. We found the support given by the Le Boat team excellent!
We stopped in virtually every town and some of our friends cycled from lock to lock.We spent a wonderful evening at Plan B restaurant in Le Somail. A night was also spent on the canal bank before Capestang. Idyllic.We took the canal down to Narbonne and loved it. Beautiful scenery.
The route time and distance was very good. The vessel itself was lacking, slightly from old age and use. For example, the fridge definitely needed service; we were told that the water gauges did not work - too bad as it would be helpful if they did. Our party of four agreed that arrival in Cassafieres could have been better organized; that is, staff direction on where to "park" the boat in the crowded harbour.
What more could one want than to be in the South of France?
We were well looked after at the pick up and drop off. Only problem was the replacement bike wheel took a day and a half to arrive so no cycling possible during that period, very frustrating
Expensive with tall the add ons for bikes wifi and fuel. A good holiday nonetheless.

Service at both boatyards was very good.Staff very friendly and helpfulMy only criticism is the process for checking in which takes ages. So much of the processing should be pre-prepared and then only needs confirming and signing on checking in. This would speed it up a lot and avoid queues of customers waiting to get their boats. Very frustrating.
Excellent route on the canal. Would recommend to others to do this route, downstream and one-way - well worth it. Did it in early April where weather not that warm at times and leaves not yet on the trees. Best time to do it is early May.
Fantastic service. Great boat briefing and information. Loved the experience
