I've done this several times with different distances. With small kids, the start near Villbernier is best but as ours got older we started in Montsoreau then further up river in La Chapelle sur Loire. Each time has been really enjoyable. Your are given barrels on each kayak to store your bits, so take a picnic and stop off on... More

This was such an easy trip to book and do - because of the great staff, turn up, get the kit, get delivered to the launch site in a nice MPV and paddle back along the lovely Loire. So good I took some friends there a week later and I'm heading back again ASAP. No admin/ I.D/passport/ deposit/ training course... More

Used this facility a few weeks back. Booked a 1 hr trip. Were driven upstream and given paddle, life vest and map! Pushed off into water and didn't really need to do anything, just drift downstream with current! Lovely way to see the sights! Very relaxing and great value!

Does what you would expect- staff fine, equipment fine, obviously not a challenging river. We did the three hour option.

This is a well run and friendly English speaking set up that is easy to find in Saumur. We opted for the trip from Montsoreau which took a leisurely 3 hours. I can't recommend highly enough. The short drive by mini bus was fine and canoes, equipment and instructions were all spot on. The current on the Loire is strong... More

Club Saumurois de Canoe Kayak were extremely helpful. We had pre booked for Thursday but it rained so turned up Friday morning instead and were immediately driven to our drop off point, no waiting, just completed the insurance form, were fitted out with life jackets and we were off. Had a wonderful two and a half hours canoeing/drifting down the... More

My daughter and nephew (both aged 15) went on this and thoroughly enjoyed it! They went from Montsoreau to Saumur and came back tired and wet. They would recommend it to others (but not sure they would choose to do it again - although would if someone else suggested it!)

The photos on the site put me off slightly, suggesting the water was rougher than you'd imagine and that you'd need wetsuits etc. In fact we enjoyed a very gentle two-and-a-half hour paddle from Montsoreau back to Saumur, lifejackets being the only gear provided apart from the kayaks (two doubles and a single) and paddles. The river is wide and... More

4 of us hired canoes from here. Booked the day before no problem, the staff were very welcoming. A bus ride up river and we were soon set off. I took a waterproof camera but they do have containers if you want to store non waterproof items. Caught my daughters boyfriend not paddling on camera which caused him problems when... More
