– Michael Howorth,

Packs a great deal into a handy pocket-sized book... Not only are there maps...and descriptions for boaters of each section of the route...there's plenty of information about the tourist sights and interesting features of all the towns and villages on the route. One useful feature for those wanting to stop off and explore is the walking guides plotting a route around the main historic towns such as Carcassonne and Toulouse.
