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

Great views - tiring towards the end. Don't fall for the photo-booth as you get towards the finish - take your own pictures as you go along

Our family - 2 adults and 2 children (aged 7 and 9) - hugely enjoyed our first ever canoeing experience paddling on the Dordogne river from Vitrac to Castelnaud. System was really easy and we even got the hang of canoeing relatively quickly! Enjoyed a picnic at the end and a wander round the castle then a bus to take... 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

We spent the morning in Sarlat looking around the shops and the fantastic market, and had previously decided to spend the afternoon on the river. We were a party of 6 - 4 adults and 2 children. After a short drive from Sarlat to Vitrac, we arrived at the busy car park where Canoes Loisirs are based. It was busy... More

We have just returned back to our gite after an amazing day canoeing on the Dordogne with Canoe Loisirs. All the staff were incredibly helpful and polite and helped us get organised with our two small children. From the moment we reserved the canoe earlier in the week, to the moment we returned back to Vitrac everything was just as... More

My family hired 2x 2 man canoes in July and travelled the 16km down the fast flowing river to Beynac. This is a very efficient company which operate a large number of boats. They had regular buses returning you from your final destination to your car. We wore swim costumes in the canoes - the children jumped in - and... More

We have done this several times from various ports. You go to the little rental hut and chose how far you want to go. They take you by van to the location and you float/paddle back at your own pace. The river is usually very calm. You can stop as much as you want on the way back, just pull... More
