I cannot express how delighted I am with how our booking the William B for my party turned out. You made the booking process so easy…! The Bar Manager Marek who showed us the boat when we were trying to decide which company/ boat to go for was very welcoming and informative. After booking the boat, I found your helpful advice invaluable.

Well, the party took place yesterday, and each of the staff on the boat played a part in making it what many of my friends described as the “best party” of their lives – and my friends don’t flatter!

I had a fabulous time, and I know that you guys made that possible. Thank you very much!!!

…It was everything I wanted and all our guest said what a brilliant night it was
