“Fantastic hen party trip”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

I booked an hour trip on the Euphrates Packet as the organiser of a hen party, the company were great in getting all the info to me confirming time and location.

On the day I went ahead to set up the music (cd player on board). The guy on board (forgot his name sorry) was really helpful and even made a note of the brides name when welcoming everyone on board and making the safety announcement. I was allowed to use the radio mic for some hen quizzes and there was no problem in turning up the tunes for dancing.

All in all a great experience and I would definitely use them again for a special celebration.

“Interesting and relaxing”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

A relaxing and interesting cruise on a narrow boat for an hour around the central canals of Birmingham.

Discovered some new things about the canals and how they contributed to Birmingham's development.

Friendly staff and local 'colour' :)

“A lovely relaxing way to spend an hour”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

I had never been on canal boat before so I thought this may be a good idea. I loved the trip. The informative guide over the speakers was a nice touch. The area is so nice and I would not have gotten to see it if it weren't for this trip

“Must do this!”
Reviewed 18 June 2012

Managed to get a 2 for 1 offer on this cruise and found it very enjoyable. The boat departs outside the ICC centre in Broad Street a few times each day. The cruise lasted over an hour and went down the canal. There was a recorded commentary on the cruise which was very informative about the canals and Birmingham as a city. The boat was very clean with a bar and table seats – definitely recommend it.
