Les Gabares in the Dordogne

Has anyone taken one of these trips? Any chance we could hop off/on at each of the castles? If so, how much time should I allow for the excursion?

I took a short ride on les gabares from La Roque-Gageac. I don't remember being able to hop off/on. The entire trip up the river from LRG and the return took probably no more than three hours and probably a little less. We really enjoyed the ride. It was fun to see the beautiful sights along the river and look at the castles above the river. I don't remember seeing other boats in towns on the river but since we were staying close to LRG and saw the boats there, I probably didn't look too hard for other locations.
