SorayaAugust - 2018

The van is perfectly equipped. We enjoyed the fact that we had the opportunity to sleep wherever we wanted. We had no issues during our 6-day trip! I heartily recommend Le Baroudeur. Gabriel was easily reachable and gave us a lot of information and tips for a nice journey.

ShannonMay- 2018

We rented a van in May, for 5 days and 994 miles. It was truly incredible, the van is cleverly equipped, we always had what we needed!! We're already setting off a second trip with Le Baroudeur, as everything went well!! The team is very friendly and accommodating! We highly recommend!

Amaïa D.June - 2018

We had a blast for one week within our well-equipped van from le Baroudeur’s team! Complete freedom of our holidays with all the mod-cons we needed! Thanks again for your work and help! Gab’s team is the best, we felt comfortable from the very start.

ClaireMay- 2018

I went on a 4-day trip in Ontario with 2 friends. The experience is unique and really fun! The layout is very well imagined, double bed very comfy and cooking essentials to enjoy Canada :). I would especially like to thank Gab who has been really accommodating concerning our arrival and departure schedules. I look forward setting off again with Le Baroudeur !

Val P.June - 2018

Beautiful Vanlife experience with “Yvan du Rêve” in Southern Ontario and Eastern Québec. I found our van fellow downright pleasurable to drive in towns, easy to park, as well as to cross winding country roads on its way to Algonquin Park. The van is very well fitted out with an organized space, which allowed us to wander securely, freely, and to easily handle cool nights between seasons (end of April-beginning of May). Big up to Le Baroudeur’s toaster, for our morning small pleasures! Le Baroudeur’s team is best-in-class, from our first mail contact to Yvan’s keys delivery (By the way, I found it hard to leave him) after 10 days of road trip. Thanks again Gab and Le Baroudeur’s team. See you soon, we hope for a new adVANture. Until then, we recommend le Baroudeur to everyone!

Kevin C.May - 2019

We fully enjoyed our 13-day road trip with Le Baroudeur! They gave us great tips and deals for our journey! The van's layout is perfect! We recommend!!!

Julie R.October - 2018

Awesome experience! We have been warmly welcomed; our van's layout was optimum. Perfect for our journey around Gaspésie. Discreet, spacious, well-equipped, and does not consume lots of gaz. It was our very first vanning experience, and I'm getting out of it with much happiness. I look forward going on a new adventure! I recommend Le Baroudeur.

Pauline D.August - 2018

Wicked experience aboard Le Baroudeur’s van! It's extremely well-equipped! As it’s a minivan, it fits easily into parking lots, and also pleasant to drive. Good to know: the fridge is a backup cooler.

Marine P.September - 2018

As 3 girlfriends we rented Bob, a Dodge Grand Caravan with its roof tent for 5 days in April. Travelling through the Saguenay's region with Bob was a real pleasure since it's well fitted out and organized. Also, Gabriel is very accommodating, and gives useful advice! We won’t hesitate to experience Le Baroudeur again!
