I bought this activity as a treat for my mums 75th birthday. I thought it would be something a little different but also something that was easy for an elderly woman to do. Overall the experience was lovely. An enjoyable afternoon tea on a nice spacious canal boat over a 2 hour round trip on the Leeds/Liverpool canal. We were fortunate to see ducks, swans and geese with their baby chicks swimming alongside at various points along the way and the boat itself was very calm on the water. A very pleasant experience that was very much value for money.

Very enjoyable and very well organised. The food was delicious and the sandwiches were in triangles rather than the tiny finger type! Lovely cakes and Prosecco. It helped that the weather was sunny and the windows could be opened really wide. Good facilities on board and friendly staff. The tables were decorated nicely, spotless and fresh flowers too. Between the tables plastic screening was up for added safety which was good to see too.

Chose this 'cruise' for my birthday. A well organised and smooth running outing on the Dalesman. If you have mobility problems, be aware there are several steps to negotiate to get on and off the boat. Passengers are separated by transparent panels, so you feel safe during Covid. The waitress organizes bringing food and hot or cold drinks to you
