Excellent trip on this canal boat. Learned so much about Birmingham, its industrial heritage and the part played by the canal network. Highly recommend this to anyone wanting a boat trip plus a guide through history.

Yes, the canal ride was ok. Don't expect attractive scenery when you're touring an inner city canal network. BUT it was we'll-worth it for the very informed and well-researched commentary from a lovely Polish/Dutch girl whose voice probably needs a good rest after our hour's...More
