After boarding the lovely Sianga at Capestang, we will cruise downstream past the stunning scenery of the UNESCO World Heritage site that is the Canal du Midi. We just host your group so the boat is all yours. We will pass through Poilhes, and on through the famous Malpas Tunnel. The Canal is one of the oldest still in operation in Europe. We then cruise through the town of Colombiers with a very low bridge to negotiate! After some snacks we arrive at the 9 Fonserannes Locks where we disembark to watch the boats negotiating these famous locks. It can be quite amusing...We return upstream while you enjoy a delicious 3 course homemade lunch.
I have been a guide for 20 years mostly in Africa, and a boat owner and captain in France for more than a year. I am also a very enthusiastic amateur cook and love creating delicious meals. I enjoy meeting people and get great satisfaction when my clients tell me their experience with me was fantastic.

You will spend the tour aboard Sianga, a beautiful cabin cruiser with very comfortable chairs and 2 proper toilets. There are large cushions for really relaxing or sunbathing. The canal is very calm so no problem with seasickness. We stop at the Fonserannes Locks to stretch legs and watch the other boats, plus marvel at the engineering feat to create such amazing structures all together in the 17th Century.
