      We loved the experience of the river on our own. Not being total experts on houseboats the initiation was excellent and we were totally confident to go out on our own

      A really amazing experience. Could have stayed longer. As a novice and looking for something different to do this really met our needs and expectations. The only thing that was abit difficult, it would have helped to have a pully system for the Anchor. Overall Jenny and her team as well as the guys that helped with the boat instruction made us feel welcome from the beginning. A cellphone battery pack charger is very important should you need to charge your phone after taking plenty of photos and videos. It also helped to use the hotel showers and not the one on the boat.
