Having cruised the French Waterways for 4 summers on our own boat, we heartily recommend Hugh McKnight's guide

Having cruised the French Waterways for 4 summers on our own boat, we heartily recommend Hugh McKnight's guide. Without his recommendations, we would have missed our small pilgrimage to Vincent and Theo Van Gogh's graves and dozens of other sights that have made our cruises truly memorable.

Packed with detail cover to cover, Cruising French Waterways spares no effort to explore the depth and beauty of the scenic French countryside. One of the most complete guides to cover the approximate 5000 miles of waterways. plenty of maps and guides for each individual area, as well as the maximum dimensions for vessels.

Winner of the Thomas Cook Guide Book Award, it is full of fascinating information on the history and commercial activities of each area, as well as the historical sites, chateaux and scenic attractions of the many villages and towns which await discovery by water.

Sadly a very good book is destroyed by the total lack of legible maps and charts in the Kindle edition. Trying to visualize the system requires maps and charts. They are there in miniature but you cannot access them in a larger view. The Kindle edition denies you this basic need.

it does a very good job of describing a trip through any canal and the towns and villages you go thru. the only thing missing are some maps of each trip so you can follow along. I used a very good map of france but, you had to go from page to page to follow.

I expected more. Interesting histories and town descriptions, but not much help in cruising. You could use this if you're driving as well.

Somewhat outdated, but useful and interesting, not least for the historical background of french canals and local attractions which probably have not changed much.

Even though our information packed copy is an older edition, we use it almost every day--must buy a new one!

This book is great, it not only tells you about each canal but also gives you a history of the canals and a break down of the area you are travelling through and lots more information.

I bought his book not only to have a reference to canal travel but to scope out costs of such travel. While there are several, not easily found cost references, I found no specific information leading to the unavoidable conclusion that the old adage, "if you have to ask, you can't afford it", applies. Which I resent. Mr. McKnight should re-write this book adding what the costs of entering each canal, what are the average costs of meals, wine, fuel, and comparisons of food among the various sources on that route. I am not an inexperienced traveler and always have some advance feeling for cost so that unplanned surprise costs are not faced. I can understand his reluctance to include costs, as so many change fairly rapidly, but relative costs should be an important part of all travel books.
