I have been meaning to write and say what a great time and experience we had on 'What a Pleasure' and, how great the staff were, really, my friends from Auz were so impressed. There was not a thing we had to think of. They had such good attitudes and went beyond what was required of them. Will certainly recommend it, great value for money.
I believe my friends are already talking about the next trip!
Thanks for all your help on it too.
All the best,
Thanks Mo. Fantastic time had by all. Crew were great and the boat offered so much space. Magic! Thanks again.
