The best way to see towns and castles by the Dordogne river is to rent a canoe from one of the rental companies. Canoes Loisirs is one of them. For 38 euros you get a canoe for two, a waterproof containers for your valuables, a shuttle services for getting back to the point of departure and 16 km / 10... More

Plan and fail. This activity requires planning to maximise the experience. In my case I planned expertly, it was the execution of the plan that left a little to be desired. On the plus I planned to go kayaking with Canoes Loisers before I left the UK. My planning was so meticulous I had even ordered wet bags from eBay... More

We've used this company a few times now. The location is perfect, staff are very welcoming and friendly. The service is always very efficient and easy. At the end of your trip you are returned to your starting point by coach. All very well planned out, runs like clockwork.

We emailed the through their website a week before we went about prices and they emailed back straight away with prices and how to find them which was a good start. We arrived and were quickly organised with paddles, life vests, canoes and storage containers. We started at Vitrac and spent about 4 hours canoeing including about 45 minutes stop... More

Helpful English speaking staff. Reliable transfers back to Vitrac. A lovely family day out, stopping for lunch in Roque before canoeing to Beynac. Beautiful scenery

I looked on trip adviser prior to our trip and we bypassed many other canoe groups to go with Loisirs. We agree they are very well organised, great that English is spoken (thanks guys). Although it was busy when we arrived at 12, there are many canoes here, and everyone looks after you very well. We had 2 canoes for... More

We recently stayed in the Dordogne and based on the Trip Advisor reviews, we picked Canoes Loisirs to use for our canoe experience (there are loads of signs around for loads of companies). We're a family of four and decided to have one canoe (children aged 11 and 8 sat next to each other in the middle of the canoe).... More
