Good service. They have lots of canoes so we did not need a reservation. We were a bit ahead of high season, it being June 30 2015. It was 37 degrees C today and it was nice being on the water. This is a fairly slow moving River so this makes it safe and easy, but it means that you... More

What a wonderful day, everything well organised, brilliant quality canoes, easy to deal with and felt very safe all the time. All the help and advice you could ask for from the friendly English speaking staff. The scenery and the river were amazing, a real leisurely trip, pulling into the riverbank whenever we wanted and then at the end a... More

Very well organised from the moment we arrived at their Vitrac office. We took the Carsac to Beynac option, 25km in total, departing around 10a.m. They estimated we would want to be picked up from Beynac at 4.00pm and sure enough, we paddled into their pickup point at 3:45, having made stops at La Roque and Beynac for lunch and...

On impulse we decided to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and go for a paddle on the Dordogne after watching people do so as we drove to Domme and then to Sarlat. In late June, reservations weren't necessary and we were on the water within ten minutes after we parked (in the shade, I might add). The trip was... More

You really are spoilt for choice when it comes to companies offering canoe rentals on the river, but after reading the reviews on here we decided to go with Canoes Loisirs as they sounded professional and yet they also made no stipulations about having to book in advance, which was something that appealed to us so we could choose the...

This is a must do if you are in the area. Canoeing is a great way to see several villages as well as enjoying the scenery. We lucked out with great weather that day and just drifted slowly down the river. We started at Vitrac and ended at Beynac. We got out at La Roque, Castelnaud and Beynac and enjoyed... More

Have done this day trip twice now - both have been fantastic, relaxing and full of memories. The company have accomadated our fairly large group of 15ish both times well and are extremely organized.

Loved the trip and easily one of our favorite activities. A little long in some parts but we could stop, swim, get an icecream and continue on.

Canoe Loisirs was recommended by our B&B "La Lanterne" who has a discount with them. Very well organized and friendly staff, they transport you to the start of the trip depending on how long you would like to paddle and they pick you up at the end location. It is well marked and easy to find. Very easy run as... More
