Thank you so much for helping me with our houseboat booking. We had a fabulous time on Philippa - she is a wonderful boat and we would most definitely book her again, she could do with some maintenance, e.g have fans working in all room and screen doors but we understand this is all in the pipeline and we got her at a very reasonable price. We highly recommend her and the staff were fantastic. Our family member for the UK was so thrilled with the boat that they will be back in 2019 to do another houseboat trip. Thank you for helping me organise everything. Wishing you a wonderful week.
We had an amazing time on the boat, every thing went smoothly and we were well looked after. We are looking forward to going again.
We got back yesterday after our houseboat trip...all feeling a bit down that we couldn't extend our stay! We had the most wonderful time. The crew were outstanding, the food was excellent and the bonus was that we had some great fishing! We saw eles every day and Peter showed us some great fishing spots!
The storm on Christmas Eve was quite an experience! Peter, Gilbert and Henry were amazing and took control making sure we were all safe.
A huge thank you for helping to organise everything, we will definitely be back!
All the very best for 2018.
Thanks for checking on us, we had a wonderful time in the lake and everyone was extremely impressed with the boat facilities, the crew and everything about the charter, we are grateful for your assistance.
The crew was very friendly and helpful especially the captain Mr. Peter and the deckhand Tafie, they should keep up the good work. The memories made were priceless and I am sure will be calling on you again soon for another trip.
Once again we wish to express our sincere gratitude for the memorable charter, will surely recommend you to family and friends.
All the best in your endeavors.
Back in the UK safe and sound.
Fishing was disappointing but boat and crew were excellent.
