We all had a fabulous time, it was lots of fun and laughs every minute of the way. A big thank you to the team for their patience and expert tuition and by the end of the holiday we were all highly proficient. Excellent holiday, great for groups, can't recommend it enough and we will certainly be doing it again.

I have just spent the weekend on the King Louis barge with my wife and 4 friends! The barge was immaculate and when we arrived John and his son came with us through the first set of locks to make sure we knew exactly what we were doing before we set off on our own! John was always at the end of the phone if we had any questions and made us feel like nothing was too much trouble! Thank you Canal Boat Cruises!

We have been on this canal boat many times and we have never been disappointed. Yesterday we went a Mother's Day trip and enjoyed every minute. I enjoyed my vegan meal which was made specially and appreciated. The staff are delightful and the scenery is magnificent. My only gripe is the use of mobile phones , perhaps a little mention on the booking info for the comfort of others if the use of mobiles could be limited? It spoils the peace with mobiles beeping and ringing.

Moan over, it is a must do experience and I look forward to the next trip we make with this company.

We went on the Tapas night on the 31st Jan. It was just fantastic, the staff are great, friendly and very efficient. The food was just lovely, a mixture of freshly made tapas. The whole experience was just brilliant and I cannot recommend it enough. We will certainly be doing it again.

This attraction is one of the nicest experiences for an evening out. My friends and I have attended the New Years eve event on board for the last 4 years, The staff, headed by the lovely Lesley, are very friendly and extremely professional. The food is excellent considering the limited facilities on board. We can't rate it high enough. The lunch time and evening cruises which run throughout the year are also a must. Keep up the good work team.
