Amazing views of the viaduct and Peyre village and watching the boat being lifted out of the water for the trip back was entertaining. Guide was very good but it helped that I could understand some French as the others in the boat were French.

We were taken by boat from Creissels to Pleyre down the Tarn River. There were some small rapids which our boat had to be steered through. Half way along our trip we passed under the famous Millau Viaduct. Pleyre is built into the cliffside beside the river. This is a really interesting trip.

The perfect way to enjoy one of the loveliest areas in France while viewing one of the wonders of the modern world. Charming, helpful, knowledgeable and FUN staff. Not to be missed. Well worth the drive and the slight difficulty in getting to the actual site. The Viaduc is a marvel and the boat ride is a pleasant experience.

We travelled in April 2015 from Marseille by train to Montpelier and bus to Millau Bus/Railway Station. We recomend the bus journey over the tablelands as the descending views to the township of Millau are outstanding. Quentin picked us up from the Bus/Railway Station and took us to the landing and our Boatman, Max, provided us with an enjoyable, interesting... More

A great way to see "the other side of the Millau Viaduc". This was very enjoyable boat ride, shooting the rapids (little ones!) seeing the bird life, contrasting the Viaduc with the old village on the river, almost 1000 years apart. Bateliers du Viaduc are very well organised, we had a great capable and informative boatman. The boat ride completed... More

What a lovely way to see the river, birdlife and drift gently under the incredible Millau Bridge. The short walk to reach the boats from the car park went through a pretty part of the village of Creissels and at the end of the boat trip we were returned to the car park by minibus. Most enjoyable.

For some this is just a bridge, but what a bridge. The facts and the figures are astounding the views amazing. This is well worthy of a visit if you happen to be in the area.
