We did the trip down and up the Odet, a very beautiful river. Left on time, arrived on time, and thoroughly enjoyable. I found the commentary tone was spot on: not too much in quantity and lots of interesting titbits of information.

Very expensive cruise for not much to see, very disappointing visit. There are only trees and couple of castles/manors you can't barely see because of trees, this is it. You end the cruise in the industrial area of Quimper.

Dear emmanuelle m, We are sorry to read that the cruise on the Odet river didn't satisfied you. Maybe the Discovery Trip on the Glenan islands would have been a better suggestion for you. Kind regards, Vedettes de l'Odet
