A pleasant cruise

The canal/river Doubs is beautiful, though the villages along the route (upstream from Dole) have limited facilities for cruising. The boat was excellent despite being nearly 20 years old. However, we were surprised and disappointed by Nicols policy of charging extra per hour of engine use. This should have been clear before booking. Overall it was a very enjoyable but expensive holiday. The staff at the Dole base were very helpful and friendly. Thanks.
