About Us

  • Nathalie: based near the Canal de Garonne, Nathalie is passionate about slow tourism and collaborative approaches within tourism. She has been working within the sector of local economic development for more than 20 years.
  • Raquel : A Tour Manager for over 15 years, Raquel is interested in new trends in tourism, particularly around navigable waterways and rail. Professionally, she is based near the Canal du Midi in Languedoc and raised near the Regent’s & Lea Canals, London.

Our team is grateful for the advice and encouragement of waterway enthusiasts: amateur & professional boaters, cyclists, fishing & watersports enthusiasts, local residents, French & foreign tourists,…

We are continually striving to improve and offer new services on our platform; this will require time and resources. We may, therefore, make an application for Crowdfunding in the near future.
