Clarify if you absolutely need to start at the first stop, or could get on at another stop. Also, suggest making the location of the stops a bit more obvious. Finally, it was a bit confusing doing the booking - it implied you couldn’t start using the bus until the time you booked, but that wasn’t the case. It wouldn’t let you book if there was less than 60 minutes before the booking time, you had to go to the next time slot, even though there was plenty of room.

The commentary about the history could be louder, as it's hard to hear when you're upstairs or have more speakers, that is my only improvement advice I do have

We really enjoyed our boat trip. It was very relaxing and informative. The seats were very comfortable and on board refreshments were very reasonably priced .

Enjoyable and relaxing hour seeing the canal. Large number of swans and many other water birds.

Really great trip, good length of time, wide rage of refreshments. Staff lovely and welcoming.
