Loved your review! Thanks so much.
Thanks for your amazing review. We like to think that our cruise experience is great in all weathers ... however numbers on wet days would suggest otherwise so glad that we could make your cruise experience extra special.
Thanks Lee, Our aim was to create an affordable experience on the river and I am glad that you agree. See you again we hope.
