5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

We loved the vessel. So untypical of all the other cruise boats. The captain was informative and fun and did an amazing job of navigating the very crowded canals during SAIL. Would certainly highly recommend over the other HOHO canal cruises.

Brilliant bike tour. I hadn't ridden in a long time and found the pace comfortable with enough breaks to hear tour information. We had a lovely day for it and the countryside was beautiful - a great way to get out of the city and explore!

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2015

At 18 people, the boat was crowded the boat is supposed to hold 25. The guide was a wonderful woman, but some of her information was wrong. I sat in the front and could hear her, but I don't know how people in the back could perhaps if you were looking for a nice cruise on the canals with a bit of bubbly, you could relax and sit in the back.

The quay from which the tour launches is a bit of hack. I think it was relocated and maybe this is a temporary location. You need to be a little bit limber to get on and off the boat.

In the end, I want to take another cruise, on a more spacious boat, even if I have a pay more. I don't feel completely satisfied.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2016

Nice tour, but very bad experience with pre-booking through Viator. Next time I would better book on the spot.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this September 2015

Redeeming voucher was a nightmare. we were sent to 3 different places before one lady felt so bad for us she took care of getting us tickets and it wasn't even from this company! Never again will I purchase from Viator!
