Customer Testimonials

I am writing to give a big thank you for all your help in arranging a short weekend break for me and 4 mates. The staff at Worcester marina were very helpful genuine and polite. The boat Wisp of the Water was fantastic. As we are all rugby players we were hesitant about the size of the 6 berth. There was no need as there was ample room. The boat was equipped with all mod cons which was great. We had plenty of storage space for luggage/beer.


I can't say enough good things about UK Canal boating. The customer service was above and beyond what i expect.

Many thanks, Mr Moorhouse - A UK Canal Boat Holidays Customer.


The stag do was fantastic thanks! We were very happy with the service and everything to do with the boat went very well. A great weekend was had by all. Honestly we can't think of anything to change. Thanks for your help organising it. Cheers - Chris, a Canal Boating Holidays customer.
