What a pleasant thing to do on a Warm British Evening! Went on a charter trip with St. Ives Camera club - relaxing and peaceful and lots of good humour!.... and a lot easier than punting!

Booked a trip and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Captain (driver) was full of interesting anecdotes and local history and answered any questions posed with knowledge. Don’t miss out was a nice bimble up the river and back.
