A fun voyage around the lake. The captain has some fun facts, and a few groaners. Great way so see the lake, enjoy the weather, and some stately homes. Seating is 'odd', and awkward for pictures of the lake. Fun time.

Nice trip, funny and so knowledgeable captain. It was a bit crowded but not too bad. Take some snacks with you. Don’t sit where you keep your neck backwards all the time, if you have issues like me, it’s 50 minutes long!
