We are in the process of planning a 7 day canal experience for summer 2018. It's going to have to be sometime between June 15-July 15.
There will be 4 of us - My wife and I and our 33 year old daughter and her husband.
While we enjoy nature, we really want to be able to explore several small towns and villages along the way as well as finding some excellent places to dine.
My concern: I've read a bit about the Canal du Midi and it sounds wonderful BUT I'm afraid it will be terribly crowded in the summer months. We don't mind a little crowding (it's all a matter of degree) but sure don't want to end up waiting in line for hours to get through some locks.
