A splendid commented cruise 50 minutes to discover from the river the charms of Venice of the Périgord and the rich architectural heritage of Brantome. The electric boat with 49 seats will transport you in peacefully. A wonderful trip not to be missed!

Great way to get your bearings of Brantôme, stunning scenery as well as a basic overview of the history via the very limited transition from the tour guides.

This was a fun way to get a sense of Brantome and its ancient history. Nice to cool off and hear about the nature and history.

Thank you about your commentary. During the trip, when we leave the canal of the city we can enjoy the nature. Have a good holiday.

Although I think the claim to be "The Venice of Perigord" is a bit of a stretch this was still an enjoyable boat trip around the town; very peaceful and relaxing.

The expression "The Venice of Perigord" was stated by a French president in 1913 because the city is an island and there are 5 bridges to join the land. Thank you for your visit.

A great way to get the atmosphere of peace on the River Dronne. You are taken up the canal that passes in front of the Abbey. Then join the Dronne to pass under some VERY low bridges! On the return journey the engine is switched...More

A lovely relaxing cruise around Brantome. Very peaceful and gentle. The guide was helpful and pleasant and will speak some English if there are enough English speakers on board. If not, then you're reliant on the translated information, which is ok but not great. No...More

The boat is electric so it preserved the tranquillity of the environs. The tour commentary is in French, but leaflets are provided in other languages. It was both an informative and peaceful 45 minutes.
