Review of cruising in England...

"Brilliant weekend! Loved it! Great fun on the boat navigating the waterways and enjoying the pace of life on the river. Wonderful way to see this area of England. We had a wonderful time on the Tango. It was a comfortable boat and we really enjoyed going along the waterways and through locks, having BBQ's on the side of the river and jumping in for a dip to cool off. Got the hang of boating really quickly and loved it."
