Watch out for this company. They're more than willing to take your money but take weeks to refund when they break their agreement. Seriously scary that the CEO hangs up on you! I would seriously recommend using any other company.

Excellent place to rent a narrowboat for the day. Boat was exactly as described and performed perfectly on this attractive section of Trent and Mersey canal. Good tuition and nice people. Would be good for celebration or even corporate event or "Team Building".
