Our first experience of both narrowboat cruises and the Grand Union Canal. The skipper and crew settled us in, made us feel comfortable and then settled down to a informative meander down the waterways. Thanks; thoroughly enjoyed by both young and older members in our party.

The owners and staff strive to do their upmost to make their guests comfortable and appreciative of their trip on the canal.

We visited recently for my mothers birthday. Our party consisted of 5 adults and 4 children. The boatyard owners could not have been more helpful and accommodating.
Our boat was great and we stopped for a pre-booked lunch at the Grand junction arms..18 locks in total to and from the yard...a tiring but superb day. Thank you to the owners for everything!

We spent a very enjoyable afternoon celebrating a friend's 50th. birthday. Grebe allowed us to add simple balloon and banner decorations on board before boarding which added to the atmosphere.

We cannot praise the Grebe staff highly enough. They bent over backwards to assist and nothing was too much trouble.They were attentive and polite - very friendly and ready to answer my inane questions about the canal and the boats with good humour Although I would not like them to review their prices I have to say that for three hours of different entertainment, including a cream tea and as much tea/coffee as you can take this represents exceptional value for money. We have booked to take out a self-drive(?) boat later this year and will be taking the entire family for the whole day.

Highly recommended for something a little different then you will not be disappointed.

PS Don't forget to ask about the water-skiing option.
