we went here as it can be accessed through the BCLM and we were delighted with it. The tour guide was brilliant and the information was interesting. There were lots of little surprises along the way such as music and a documentary about the caves, brilliant 45 mins would definitely go again

My children really enjoyed this as their Santa visit this year, the pantomime bit was very funny & the loved having Santa come to see them on the boat. This was something different & worth the journey. I can't rate the gift given as they are not opening them until Christmas Day, but I recommend this trip. Carole : )

Brilliant day, we went here as a party of 12 but wouldn't of needed to as all the people on the boat were up for Christmas. The staff were very friendly and deserve a medal because it can get a little chilly in the tunnels. I would highly recommend this trip and will certainly spread the word. Well done dudley... More

Went as a family with 2 children 6 and 4 for the santa canal trip. Brilliantly organised from start to finish. Prices were very reasonable throughout. Children loved the trip, would recommend to all.... Some so called top Christmas attractions could learn a lot from this experience.. Thanks for a great day.

A wonderful experience! Fun, historical and the staff very friendly! Santa came onto the canal boat and spoke to all the children along with a photo. My boys thought it was a magical day and the small pantomine was really funny. Really recommend people with famillies to visit.

Initially we just went because we thought it would be a nice boat trip. But it was much better than that. Our guide was both interesting and entertaining, his enthusiasm for his job was infectious. Would definitely recommend, but prepare to look silly in a hard hat!
