This attraction really requires two separate ratings. The first for the boat ride and the second for the narration. This was a one hour round-trip from the Port of Dinan to a small village called Lehon on the Rance River. While it was pleasant enough,...More

After trekking up and down the steep incline of rue du Jerzual it made a very pleasant change to sit on a boat and take in the sights for an hour. This is what you get on the Jaman V river cruise. There were at...More

Very friendly people running this boat. It's just an hour long trip, but we really enjoyed it and they made us so welcome. The commentary included the history of the canal, the barges, the lock and the abbey and was full of gentle humour. We...More
