What you'll do

We embark from Capestang, and glide along the stunning Canal with it's beautiful scenery. As the only group on my gorgeous boat, Sianga, you will enjoy an exclusive cruise with one to one hosting, with your drinks of choice and snacks. I will talk about the amazing history of the canal as we pass though the lovely village of Poilhes and then the famous Malpas Tunnel. There are comfortable chairs at the front of the boat for relaxing, sunbathing or just profiting from the superb ambience of this fabulous UNESCO World Heritage site. We turn and then disembark at Poilhes on our way back for a delicious 2 course meal at the wonderful restaurant, Les Platanes. After lunch you reboard Sianga for our return to Capestang. You will leave feeling fully relaxed, in awe of this beautiful piece of history, and with new friends (I hope!).
Other things to note
Comfortable shoes are recommended.
