The trip was good, the crew were nice, what annoyed us being old people was that it took about one and a half hours to book it. Having to get the vouchers on to the phone, photographing the receipt. When got to the gangplank I was asked “ what’s your name” and then we got on. Very annoyed to waste all our time getting the vouchers on our phone, if we did not need it. JUST SAY YOU HAVE BOOKED, GIVE YOUR NAME AT GANGPLANK. What’s hard about that. Ken Bragg

Well organised tour of Loch Lomond on a very comfortable boat. Good seating arrangements across two levels with open areas front and back. Excellent pre recorded commentary well synchronised at all the appropriate points. Luckily we had a mostly sunny day which really showed the scenery at its best. We purchased drinks on board but no snacks or crisps etc available which I am sure most people would have had so maybe they are missing a trick not providing them. Very pleased with the the adjacent parking and easy access to the boat dock.

I took my parents to Loch Lomond for their 60th Diamond Anniversary , we decided to book the boat trip, best part of the trip , they absolutely loved it, I must say the staff were outstanding , very helpful and showed consideration for my parents who are a bit slow on their feet. Thank you for that. That aside the actual tour and commentary was excellent , my dad in particular loved listening to the stories of the Loch, it was so lovely as to my surprise when you played the bonnie banks on the tannoy system they both sang it from beginning to end, I didn’t even know they new it. You and your team made their day. Thank You.
