We loved it. Super friendly and helpful staff, well organized and good price. We did the 1.5hr trip, but we did many... stops to swim and enjoy the surroundings, so we stayed like 5 hrs. Highly recommended.read more

Visited and rented 4 kayaks for a 2 hour tour of 10 km on a hot day (35 celsius) with a group of 8 adults. When we... arrived the employees were chilling in the shade (who wouldn't). The youngest employee quickly came to help us. Pricing was pretty high compared to other kayak rentals in Argentat but they were the only one with kayaks available so no biggy. They have a starting point and ending point as all kayak services here have. With a car this is a 10 minute drive. The youngest employee was very kind but a senior employee told her in French that they couldn't pick us up because it was "trop chaud" (Which means "it's too hot" -This wasn't meant for our ears) because we would be too late for the first commute service and would have to wait for too long for the last commute service. So we had to drive with two cars to the end point, leave one car there and return with the two drivers in one car to come back to the starting point. We had to repeat this process at the end point again costing us a-lot of driving with two cars and time to begin our kayaking and again to leave. They had a van with 10 seats so could of easily saved us a-lot of time and hassle but were reluctant because of the temperature. When we asked to pinpoint the place to park the car (handing over an iPhone with google maps opened) they wouldn't help. The kayak trip was good but I would pick any other kayak service over this one in Argentat as we have done all the years before this one and will do so in the coming years. Bad service because of the temperature.read more

If you are looking an active day out; look no further. Take the 18km route from Vayrac to Saint Sozy and enjoy the... cliffs and the (mild) rapids. I strongly recommend making a reservation. Take a picknick and avoid the "snackbars" along the way (really, don't eat there). Fun to do with kids, but they MUST be able to swim at least 25m on their own for safety reasons.read more

Three day trip down the river Dordogne. I think higher up is more interesting as the water runs faster and their are... more white water sections which for me is the fun of it all. Make sure to prepare for all weathers as it is all exposed to the elements. Great fun for all the family.read more
