We were warmly welcomed and had very comfortable seats with an excellent view. The commentary was interesting and informative. The food was generous and very tasty. We would not hesitate to bring other friends along for another cruise and highly recommend it.

We spent the day cruising the canal, pausing for lunch and a wine tasting at a lovely restaurant along the way. Could not have been a more relaxed and pleasant trip.
