Never thought the countryside was so luxuriant and calm. There is a real way of life along the Erdre river. The cruise, with commentary lasts 1.5 hours. A must.

Bonjour, thank you very much for your answer! Can I ask a few more things? We have not bought the Nantes Pass yet, but plan to do so online before departure this week. Is it better to book the Erdre cruise online before buying the pass then? (I don't see any free option for Nantes Pass holders without having to pay beforehands. But it is no problem if it's not possible to book online, we can contact you when we arrive as you suggested.) And is the booking obligatory for the Promenade sur l'Erdre, or we could just come before the departure to see if there are any places avaliable? We would maybe prefer this option as we don't have everything planned yet. And if I understand correctly there is some sort of commentary during the journey - I forgot to ask if it is also in English, or is it only in French? Thank you for your patience with my lots of questions :)
