Group of 4. Boat with few people being possible to see rat distance between people of different groups. Pleasant and peaceful trip.

Superb cruise on a very nice sailboat with Philippe and Andrew who are very nice. A moment of pleasure to redo without hesitation.

Very good moment thanks notably to blankets due to wind, the music on the boat and the confortable seats. Nice views of the river.

Great experience, great crew, always very kind. Great value for money
