    Amazing weekend

    We had the most amazing time! Everything has been really well thought out to provide a totally relaxing, yet exciting trip 😊

    Russell was great - friendly, calm and knowledgeable, and made us feel very comfortable and confident driving the boat.

    The locks and bridges were brilliant fun and the scenery was just beautiful - we really felt we’d escaped and had a proper break!

    Thank you so much for a wonderful stress free experience W4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Amazing weekend

    A great experience, relaxing and fun. Everything you need on board and a very informative tution from Russell who showed us the ropes before we went on our trip. If you have any doubts before your trip my advice would be to just go for it and you wont regret it. Great for families and couples alike

    Amazing weekend

    I absolutely loved my holiday aboard Astarte. Its very clean, spacious and well equipped. Helen and Russell and great hosts. My family and I had a birthday party on board to see how we liked it. Well we loved it! So we hired the boat for a week. Russell gave us lots of tuition before we set sail on our own. I can definately recommend a holiday aboard Astarte. You'll see lots of wildlife on the river and there's great places to visit ashore too. We'll definately take another trip.
