The canal cruise was an absolute pleasure lasting 2 hours with a cost of 12 euros and 6.60 for children 3-12 years. Our trip was fully subscribed and on our return the next group was ready to go and equally populated so the advice is to book. English is spoken at the billeterie and obviously on the phone. Further advice: if you want to sit in the bow, buy your ticket and line up at the emarquement ASAP. The trip is at the canal's maximum of 4 knots/hour so it is leisurely and thoroughly enjoyable. Commentary is in French, English and Spanish and is not overwhelming at all, comment is made when needed. The cruise is wheelchair friendly as was evidenced by one of the guests. The crew of two was pleasant and helpful. Going through the locks, for a lock virgin, was very interesting and the scenery throughout was very pleasant. My wife and I took two locals with us, one 84, one 68 who had never been on the canal before and they, like us had an absolutely wonderful time. This is not neon lights and loud music, just a wonderfully pleasant afternoon, highly recommended.

Lenght was great and it was nice to have possibility to buy some drinks. English translation was spoken and we enjoyed our time.

This cruise was well organised, informative and idyllic. The commentary was done in French and English (we suspect we were the only two English speakers on the boat). It was exactly as I expected, an idyllic motor up the canal, going through 1 set of locks twice (it goes up the canal and returns to the starting point), as well as over an aqueduct and under 3 bridges. On the whole very enjoyable.

Intresting cruise on the Canal with valuable information in different languages. Very relaxing. We've had a great meal in restaurant ' La Peniche' located in the port of Homps
