Day trips experiences

In our client’s own words…

What’s it like on a day trip with Waterways Experiences? Let’s see what some of our passengers and groups have to say about their day out on the Grand Union Canal.

We were with a large group of friends, enough to fill the boat yesterday 6th June. We were blessed with the most amazing weather sun, sun, sun. The crew made us welcome from the beginning and the knowledge they conveyed was very informative. Many of us helped at the locks and some of us even took the tiller…..without any mishaps. This was a terrific afternoon, and when we got back to base a bit too early, we carried on in the opposite direction to stretch the time. A super afternoon highly recommended.

I would like to thank you for a great day on Monday September 23rd. Everything has changed for my family and me, since I was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in April 2015. Now in a wheelchair, unable talk and eat, the time on the boat gave me time to be somewhere different. Peaceful, relaxing and a time for family and friends to be together. Our children, Sebastian and Valentina, enjoyed steering the boat and opening the locks, as did the adults. Everyone enjoyed the picnic and endless tea. There was plenty of space on the bow, for my wheelchair. Helpful, knowledgeable staff. Thanks very much from the Knowlman family.

Had a fantastic day out with family. From booking until our day was over, everyone was so kind, informative and helpful. We will be booking again, very soon. The children loved being involved, steering the barge and opening/closing the locks. Highly recommend for all ages!

Great day out for all the family, we had three generations onboard, crew were great and we are got the opportunity to steer if we wanted and help with the locks.
Will definitely book again in the summer.
