We inaugurated the first cruise of this type and we are delighted. The day was perfect, the boat is very comfortable, the hosts more than attentive and are French. The landscape along the way is sublime and different on the way back and forth. The morning mist brings another vision. The waterfalls are really impressive with not too many people in the morning. The return is made by eating a very good meal. We highly recommend this cruise. Signed of the normans in mop
