Visited the dragonfly cruises whilst on a family holiday, the owner and staff couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating to our family. The refreshments provided on board were lovely and we was even allowed to eat our own lunch on the boat. The trip last 2.5 hours and was a lovely experience to see the lovely views. They also...

Hired a small boat for 2 hours and had a relaxing cruise down the canal to the next lock and back. Easy to navigate and we all enjoyed the ride.

Quite a nice little trip - only downside we thought was that the informative talk was pre-recorded and played right at the start of the journey. Would have been nice to be given the information at the right spots.

We had a fab time on the canal with Dragonfly cruises, fun and relaxing trip for our extended family group, including helping to go through the lock, and a stop off at the viaduct. Even the wet weather didn't spoil our morning and the refreshments on board kept us warm too. The skippers were great with the kids and we... More

Me, my mom and sister had a ride on one of the smaller boats. I found it really fun to drive and they both enjoyed the scenary. Really friendly guy working the place. Only problem is how busy they are, so you have to book in advance! :)

Bank Holiday Monday my family and I took a Dragonfly Cruise in Brecon. It was a most wonderful way of de-stressing. It took two and a half hours, but it was absolute heaven. We couldn't have asked for nicer weather, as it was blue skies all the way. The staff were very cheerful and helpful in explaining exactly what what... More

We had a warm welcome from a gentleman who ensured that the kids had life jackets and we had to watch a short safety film. He then gave us the keys to the boat, showed us the basics and we were off. I had arranged to hire boat for two hours as this was our first foray into the canals,... More

Very good value for money - £7.80 per adult and Annie went for free (she's only 2 1/2) and the whole experience took two and half hours. Snacks and drinks are also available and again good value for money. Annie was fascinated by the... More
