We had such a fabulous and memorable day for our 1-day narrow boat hire! It was our first time and we unfortunately picked a windy day. However Mick was so nice showing us all the controls of the narrow boat. He gave us lots of encourage and reassurance (which we needed badly!) and was so helpful when we called him on the way! I am sure I will be back with more friends next time! This is definitely one of my top 10 travel experiences!
Stopped at Twyford Wharf with problems with our boat, Colin offered advise and arranged for an engineer to repair our boat. I observed they modern, well equipped boats, they prices look very competitive. Colin is a genuine Canal enthusiast and a p[easure to deal with.
