I run one of London's leading wine tasting companies and this is by far my favorite venue. It's a perfect way to spend a birthday, anniversary or company outing. The staff on board are fantastic and the meeting place is easy to get too.

I booked this boat trip for a work party & had a fab time. The boat was equipped with everything we needed; such as ice buckets, clean loo, music connection etc. The staff were really fun, friendly, but were still very professional.

Hello, yes we can take children on the boats provided they are accompanied by adults. The route goes through canal locks and a tunnel so there is plenty to see. Thank you
