Canal due Midi boating guide, 28 Oct. 2011
We turned down the chance to buy an expensive guide to the canals on our recent holiday but really they are a must for planning - whether you want a lock free holiday or if there are particular places you want to stop. This guide is excellent and will show you all the information you need to plan your own route and stops along the way. If you are a novice you will really find this helpful. Although they say you don't need any experience to take a cruiser down the canals, really it is quite demanding and requires some skill in boating and "parking" in awkward places. If you can't reverse a car then you'll definitely have trouble reversing a boat! This is a well put together book and at a much cheaper price than from your holiday company.
