As your review is more about a specific barge and not the Burgundy Canal, please consider moving your comment to their own page. https://www.tripadvisor.com/VacationRentalReview-g187111-d12003709-Private_Cruise_and_Bike_Tours_THE_BURGUNDY_CANAL_NEAR_DIJON_6_max-Dijon_Cote_d_Or_Bou.html All the best Phillip

I'm glad you enjoyed your cruise. It's ok promoting the canal and the barge, but I think you could ease off the free publicity you're trying to create for "BL". Looking forward to you re-editing your review.
