Really friendly company. Absolutely lovely. Cruised passed them previous year and from their lovely comments we booked with them this year. Great boat. Clean tidy. Can not fault them. Boat had everything we needed. They also gave us a door guard for our dog. These boats have larger outside space, which is important when everyone wants to be outside together. Cost includes fuel, so no extra bill at the end. Will be booking again.

Our first time being let loose on the canal ways. We had really good instruction from Pauline and Dave. The narrow boat was beautifully laid out and very, very clean. We needed absolutely nothing except our hand towels and bath towels. The trip was a short one and we arrived back in Middlewich in gale force conditions and monsoon rain!!!! But we so enjoyed ourselves. Other boaters were very helpful and friendly. Will definitely book another holiday . Thank you so much to Andersen Boats for the lovely roses and wine which were on the canal boat when we arrived.

We booked last minute with Andersen and were accommodated for our quirky trip length and at a price we couldnt complain about. The boat was the Fjord Countess and it was well equipped and made our 17 day journey very comfortable. The slight problem we had with the heating was taken care of with an engineer at our boat in less than an hour and sorted within 10 minutes of arrival. Handover was smooth coming and going and compared to the bigger companies like Anglo-Welsh, Andersen wins hands down for friendliness and a genuine concern for the customer and the quality of their holiday. If you are looking to do a first time canal trip, trusting it to Andersen will not leave you disappointed. We have traveled with quite a few companies, Andersen are one of the two best.

Another great time on Andersen Boats.
Went with our neighbours, 4 adults, 2 children and 3 dogs.
Fyord Empress 6 berth was perfect, well equiped and clean.
Managed to get through Harecastle tunnel and back in the 3 night tour.
Kids really enjoyed the 70 locks we went through.
would certainly use again.
