The main point of our visit was to go over the Pontcysyllte aqueduct.The boat trip over and back was well managed and a very interesting and as far as I was concerned good value (£7.00 each).Beforehand we had sandwiches and toasties in their cafe which were very tasty and again good value.All staff were very friendly and helpful.

In an autumn afternoon, this was a lovely boat cruise on the canal, going on top of the aqueduct (quite unusual and spectacular !), very relaxing as well. Remember to sit at the front of the boat so you can more easily go outside and enjoy even more the wonderful scenery.

We ordered jackets with chilli and paid extra for cheese. The jackets were very small with a table spoon of chilli and cheese on only one. The waitress did bring cheese when I told her. We ordered tea for four but didn't get any, although we realise after the waitress didn't charge us for teas even though she wrote it... More

A lovely relaxing couple of hours. Sunday roast with really tasty and followed with a traditional apple pie and custard. As it October, a bit too cold to sit outside. But well worth it and would consider visiting again.

Very enjoyable experience, the guide was very informative and cheerful, the journey over and back was awe inspiring, plus excellent views of the valley.

my hubby and I decided on the spur of the moment to book this, and there were places available as it happened. however, on reading other reviews we are slightly puzzled as to why some reviewers only paid £7 for the trip over the Aqueduct, we paid £13.50 each!! that was what was quoted and to be fair we assumed...

This is a case of mistaken identity! Had you travelled with Jones the Boats (we are based at Trevor) you would have crossed the aqueduct twice as ours is a 45-minute return trip for £7. As it is, you travelled with a different company. I am pleased that you enjoyed the experience. Perhaps it would be enough to encourage you... More

Decided to call in last minute having found this place here on trip advisor! Pleasant young host in Natalie and expertly steered by Howard. Just about had the boat to ourselves with only one other couple onboard. A very pleasant & relaxing out-&-back journey over the aqueduct. Great value @ £7 each to step off the treadmill for a while.... More

Very informative, staff lovely, dog friendly, peaceful trip, cafe looked quite nice, we only grabbed a drink but they appeared to do quiche and salad and other bits. Only thing is I would have liked the option of a slightly longer trip but fair price for what you got.
