Very traditional, can view the beauty of Le Loire
Calm and quite to imbibe the beauty of Le Loire on the boat in the middle of the river. The pilot was very polite and explains about the history of the castles. Enjoyable and memorable trip.

Wonderful trip down the Loire
We arrived early and they were able to put us in a boat for our trip. Even though the group was all French speaking and we were very poor in that area, we had a great time and learned a lot of French along the trip. Just a wonderful, relaxing and fun voyage.

La Belle Loire
Although we don't speak very good French and Paul only spoke a little, we managed to understand each other and Paul was a delightful and charming guide. The trip was the highlight of our four days holiday, so tranquil, quiet, interesting and beautiful. I would recommend taking one of these traditional boats along the river as mandatory if you are visiting the Loire Valley!

An interesting trip with a lot of fun
We booked spontaneously at Chaumont landing place. Our guide was a very handsome, english speaking young man, who gave us a lot of information about the Loire and the wildlife around. He also gave us space to have our own experience with singing, walking in the river and enjoing ourselfs during the trip. Thank you very much for making this trip extraordinary for us!
