A example of clients' testimonial for hotel barge cruising in France

Bonjour Leila. 
We returned to Australia last week from our trip on Claire de Lune on the Canal du Midi from 10-16 April. I would like it noted that we had an absolutely wonderful time and thank you very much for all your assistance in achieving this perfect holiday for us.   The staff, led by Julian was magnificent in its support and its enthusiasm for what it was trying to achieve. Laetitia the chef was wonderful with her superb sense of smell and taste; Nicole was an excellent guide for us and had a great knowledge of cheeses; Vanessa was wonderfully helpful, efficient and friendly as hostess; and Julian as Captain and wine connoisseur, fantastic.  The week on the barge, where fortunately the weather was lovely, was the highlight of our 13 week holiday.
Are you also able to forward on our thanks, it would be appreciated. We can highly recommend the trip and again, thank you for organising it for us.
Best wishes,
Michael and Brenda B
