We had to reschedule due to the boat we had booked having sustained a damaged Propellor. We received an E mail but also a phone call and that allowed us to book a later cruise- really enjoyed it a slight technical hitch with the microphone but the guide managed to resolve it and gave a good commentary in both French and English. It was hot so take water there is shade on the deck and you can move your chairs if due to turning you do get some direct Sun. Would recommend.
