The dinner is hosted by the skipper and a waitress on a traditional wooden canal boat, built over 100 years ago as a floating office for notaries to complete trading contracts. The welcome is warm and includes a glass of Prosecco while selecting from a short menu that is basically fish, meat or veg based. This is provided by a local restaurant and is good quality, better than that on other larger canal boats, though it's not great
When you arrive, you choose to be in the front cabin with the skipper, that has 4 two-person tables, or the rear which has more space. It's best to be in the front as the skipper turns round from time-to-time, to give information about the city and its history, prompted by the moving scenery
This tour is about 30% more expensive than others, and that is worthwhile especially if you are a couple or a small group of 3 or 4 people. The food is better and the feeling is more personal than the larger tours
