“Interesting to experience”
Reviewed 19 July 2012

It was very interesting to learn the history of Fort Boyard, and of course to see it, but we were a bit disapointed that we were not alowed ashore to see the fort from th inside.
Make sure you pick a sunny day for this trip, that makes you able to also enjoy the boattrip, which take approx 1 hour each way. Then the boat circles around the fort for around 20 mins or so, and you get very close.
Note: The boats are small with no facilities, so bring your own snacks and drinks if needed :)
