We have just recently returned from a trip on Andersen boats and had a fantastic time, our boat was very well equipped although we did have to bring one or two extra bottles of wine a fact that was commented on jokingly by the owners, i think they fancied an invite!!, they were terrific and very helpful, and included a big wind up on myself on our return (advise... if you drop your camera in the canal do not let the staff know LOL!!)
The whole experience was one we will never forget, we done the Shropshire Union which we found easy as beginners and after a little training we were on our way.
The boat was very clean and well ordered and had everything that we needed, i would have no problem whats so ever recommending this company.
Thank you all for making our holiday so memorable..Michael and Angela.

Just returned from a week on the Fjord Duchess, we chose the Middlewich to Chester route. Lot's of fun, thrills and spills and beautiful scenery. The boat was of excellent quality and very comfortable with fresh flowers and complimentary wine when you arrive, and the staff were really friendly and helpful, even when we returned the boat a bit late. I will recommend this company to friends.

We have just spent sometime on one of these boats after having an excellent time last year. The scenery was excellent and we took in two tourist attractions which were the Secret Bunker and Ellesmere Port Boat Museum. We have to cut our trip short due to serious illness very quickly and they were extremely helpful,and came and collected the boat with no problem meaning we could all get home quickly together as a family. We will be back next year I am sure.

We spent a week on the Fjord Princess. What a lovely boat lots of people admired her as we stopped at locks. We where told by many that Andersen boats are known as the best hire boats available and we agree.
Highly recommend them, nothing is to much trouble, everything you need has been put in place, even lovely flowers and wine to welcome you. The boat sparkled as if new, we where also able to start are journey early and had a lovely man give us our induction. Everyone goes above and beyond to make you welcome and so helpful and kind.
My parents came for the afternoon when we moored up at middlewich, they loved the boat so much and the thoughtfulness shown to them that they can't wait to go on a Day Trip.
All we can say is its excellent, value for money. Don't think about it BOOK NOW.
