Decided to see more of the canal/waterways of Birmingham and take in an hour's cruise whilst we had limited time to spare. Was really looking forward to it. It started off okay but we seemed to take in the northern part of the city towards...More

You would think that in such developed countries they've found a way to isolate and warm you when it's cold outside. This might be the case in most places but not in these tours with wet seats and frozen air which troubles the sightseeing on...More

Considering this is a major attraction in Birmingham - the organisation is very poor. We arrived Monday 17th October 2016, no indication that the boat was booked for a private hire, the next boat was also booked for a private hire (notice board would have...More
