We thoroughly enjoyed our boat trip on a gorgeous day, seeing lots of wildlife including a marsh harrier and buzzards. The tour guide was most informative and very friendly. Would definitely do this trip again.

The guide was very informative but not over powering, a most enjoyable afternoon. Reasonably priced for the 1 hr trip.

The boat is electric and therefore very quiet and the boatman/guide is very knowledgeable but it's probably better in the spring when there are lots of ducklings etc around and grebes performing their mating rituals.
