The lake is beautiful and a must to visit, however, we should have checked beforehand as we assumed there would be taped commentary in several languages on our tour and there wasn't! The 2 hour tour seemed much longer without the commentary in English. The 2 hour trip also made many pick up and drop off stops and seemed more... More

This tour is wonderful if you want to see the scenery around the lake and all its shores. The guide explains all the interesting places where you are passing by, so you get plenty information about the place. What I didnt like though is that the boats are very crowded, you actually sit just like in cinema, so its a... More

In reality the commentary is only in French. The guide tries for every 3 sentences in French, to enmash 3 words in English. I do understand French... On the boat there were people from across Europe. Lake is beautiful. But could be made way much more pleasant to patrons if commentary is provided in different languages. Do consider this. Patrons... More

There are various options for cruising. We took the 2 hour circuit of the whole lake, and would certainly recommend it. There is commentary as you go round in French and English. It's worth getting near the front of the queue when boarding, because there aren't enough seats for everyone outside, and the views wouldn't be quite as good inside.

We were offered two different boat trips however due to short time in hand we selected half-an-hour trip. Although it was hot day and the boat didnt had shade we were initially reluctant however finally decided to go for that. Overall it was nice, occasionally the splash of water refreshed us on hot days. The boat man cum guide was... More

There is a choice of boat trips of 1 or 2 hours. We chose the 1 hour trip which was plenty of time. There boat took a round trip around one side of the lake, coming back around the other side. The lake is beautiful and this was a lovely trip on the top deck with the sun shining and... More

There are large boats that do lunch and dinner cruises on the lake. We chose the small “no frills” boat which docks at the far end of the park and has about 4 departures daily in the summer season. There is no food, no toilets but it is wheelchair accessible. No reservation was necessary and we arrived about 15 minutes... More
