"A warm welcome greeted us on boarding the Edward Elgar. Following an introductory tour by the crew a cream tea encouraged the passengers to mingle. After setting off boating it was_ sit back, relax and cruise to the views while the efficient crew looked after us for the next few days. As we cruised, skip gave a commentary on interesting features of the landscape in an informative and amusing way. The peaceful stretches of water were a haven for bird life and gave us the opportunity to “chill”. For the more energetic the included tours were comprehensive and interesting. The food was appetising and varied with no shortage of cake and fresh fruit, not to mention the free flowing drinks at lunch and dinner. A friendly crew worked as an excellent team to make our holiday truly worry free, a time to unwind and make new friends. We are delighted that we experienced life on the Edward Elgar."
