  • We were visiting the area and wanting to kayak. Some of us were novices. We had an awesome afternoon kayaking through the beautiful French country side. Thank you for the great day.
  • Great few hours on the river, lots of fun. Rapido were the only local kayak rental company who could accommodate us on two hours notice. The others were either closed or would not answer their phones. The young lady was very friendly.

  • Eine wunderbare Kanufahrt. Es lohnt sich wirklich! 12 km fährt man auf dem Fluss "Hérault" durch die Natur, weit weg von allen Auto-Geräuschen. Die ruhige Fahrt wird ab und zu von ein paar Stromschnellen unterbrochen, die viel Spaß machen.

  • I have been going to this area for 12 years and for the last 6 or so have gone canoeing at least once a year. I have always gone with Canoe Rapido as we have never had anything but an excellent time.
