April 2014

Hi Maureen

Really good to hear from you.  We had an absolutely amazing trip on the houseboat.  The crew were really good and they made our experience so special (and it helped that we caught so many fish).

The boat really did meet our expectations and overall we had a great experience.  I would definitely recommend this boat with its crew again.

Thank you again for all your help in organizing it.  And we will definitely like to do it again in the near further.

Keep well.
