Daughters Em and Issy loved this birthday treat down the river. Richard provided a warm welcome and great commentary along the way. The music, including Stevie Wonder's Happy Birthday to Ya made it extra fun. I would highly recommend this experience.Also thought the follow up photos were excellent value
