It was wonderful, really relaxing and we had a lovely lunch whilst watching the world go by. The lady Lena herself is a thing of beauty, she's clearly been lovingly restored. It was a really great experience and I'd definitely recommend it.

We had a lovely time cruising along the canal drinking champagne. We were made to feel very welcome. The trip gave us a different view of the countryside around Bath.
