Customer Comments:

Carolyn Bishop

Fantastic holiday walking the Great Glen. Walk in the day, and back to the floating hotel in the evening….. Food was just what we needed, plenty and delicious. Amazing hot showers, better than most hotels. Comfy bed, compact and bijoux room.

Barb Downie

Nothing like it in all my travels, throughout the world. The feeling of “home” on the water with friends (immediately) was quite outstanding. Your attention to detail, to customer importance to interpersonal skills was appreciated and admired.

Dick and Patty Erdos

Even after reading website, I was surprised at the activity offerings at each stop. The activities were varied – walking, strolling, biking, canoeing sailing, swimming, snoozing or cruising. Also the levels of intensity were varied 3 miles 20 miles, mostly uphill or downhill. Something for everyone
