"Great company, easy booking. Helpful team onsite. We hired a boat for a family of 4 for two hours and we had a fantastic time!"
- Alan Knightly
"Quick and easy pick up and drop off of the boat from a very friendly and helpful person. Enjoyed the easy pace of the day. Value for money for the full day hire of the boat."
- Andrew Wade
"We had a lovely day on Sunrise 2. Using a boat is the only way to explore the Broads. It is a lovely area. The boat was in good condition. We didn't use the stove but did use the other facilities. The handover was friendly and efficient. We were surprised that we managed to park up the boat at the end of the day as we struggled with this during the trip (and amusing epic fail, which much have amused passerbys). Perhaps a little more tutorage on this may have helped us here. All in all a great day. We are glad we did it and the well maintained, bigger boat provided by this professional boat company really helped."
- Lilian Bell
"Lovely people and very nice trip out on the boat"
- Matt Norman
