Thank you Philipp for your comment. Yes, when a cruise is planned, we never hesitate to sail for four people only, an opportunity to deliver you a high quality attention. So is our policy, to let you at best enjoy the Loire rive in any...More

Decided on this activity and what a good choice. It was peaceful and the commentaries although in French were translated in English. I believe that they can provide some info leaflet in other languages. We were offered a glass of Cremant de Loire with a...More

I've been told by the crew the ring was wonderfull. Please notice that 100% of girls asked to be married on our boat (for a total of two until now) answered "Yes" . Thank you Franck for your historic testimony of this lovely event.

We had been on this trip before a few years ago with friends. Decided to finish our week’s holiday this year with another trip. Very nice views of Saumur and river banks. Commentary in French only this time -I think they also do English commentaries...More

Hi SusieeQ When passengers show fluent in French during payment, the crew may imagine they are all French native speakers or people eager to use French linguage. In such occasion, and without any other request, the crew may keep on a one linguage commentary. A...More

We took the only available option for a Thursday which was the 5.30 'wine-tasting'. It turned out that this cruise is sort of sponsored by a local winery which offers 3 different wines to taste, rose, blanc and rouge. The wine was good, especially the...More

We thought this would be a fun (perhaps somewhat "touristy") way of spending 50 minutes in Saumur but weren't really expecting anything too special. However, by the end of the (generous) 50 minutes we felt we had seen Saumur from a different angle, while having...More

This gentle cruise along the Loire river was a good way to see the valley around Saumur, but it's nothing special really. There is a guide offering info as you cruise along, but she was very quiet so was hard to hear over the sound...More
