They told me they were booked up until a few days after the expiry, and to my surprise they wouldn't honour the voucher. I've... More

The trip was a present for my birthday for myself and my husband. My sister and hubby came too. We really enjoyed it . Was very relaxing and enjoyable.

We had a really nice afternoon visit to the canals. It worth a visit! The tunnels are cool, and there is a movie in the middle. The commentary from our "captain" was really good! We enjoyed it a lot! Worth a visit and we are planning to go back for longer trips too.

We took this a couple of weeks ago, the guys stealing the barges had great knowledge and was very clear with a bit of Black Country humour, advice would be take a light jacket or cardigan even in the summer as it can be a little cold in the tunnels and you do get the odd drips of water drop...

Had a great time on the barge. Very informative and enjoyable. Seating a bit basic and would have been useful to kinow that you get dripped on, but that didn't detract from the enjoyment. The scone plus cream and jam was delicious, and the mug of coffee most welcome. Well worth it.
