Owner description: Canal and River Cruises Ltd operate the Lady A, a 12 seater narrowboat on London's canals, based in the lovely laid-back area of Maida Vale known as Little Venice. We offer private tours for private parties of all sizes between 2 and 12 guests. A canal cruise is ideal for family celebrations, hen parties or just a day out with your friends. Our most popular cruise is 2 hours, slowly following the Regents Canal through Maida Vale and Regents Park and London Zoo before turning around at Camden Lock Market. We also specialise in custom made private cruises from two hours or more with an itinerary built just for you! Ask us for advice on where to go before and after your cruise to make a perfect day! A special rate is available for just one or two people. We are here to make your day special! Contact us by searching for Canal and River Cruises London in google as Trip Advisor has recently removed all contact details for this type of business. Not sure if this is permanent! Mike

Absolutely couldn't have been better, after a bit of waiting for two of of seven 'cruisers', we set of towards Camden on the most beautiful summers evening. Mike was great, helpful and friendly. We had brought our own provisions and just had the most fantastic couple of hours in the gentle arms of the Regents canal. Just wish we had booked for longer, none of us wanted it to ended. Highly recommend this experience and we'll definitely be doing it again.

Such a beautiful day out. I surprised my niece with the 2 hour tour special for 2 people. Mike was easy to communicate with and accommodated my last minute request to change the date. The location was super easy to find. He was even happy to take a few pictures for us. I would highly recommend this company and will definitely be booking again.

What a fabulous introduction to London! We joined Mike & the Lady A in Little Venice & set off on Grand Union & Regents Canal toward Camden locks & on to Kings Cross to visit the Canal Museum. This is such a relaxing way to see another side of London & also learn of the history of the canals & narrow boats that plied the waterways in years gone by. I spent most of my time up front photographing the passing vistas & gorgeous manor homes of Regents Park. My partner kept Mike company asking all manner of questions. Mike has a wealth of knowledge about the canals & narrow boats so ask questions and he'll be happy to pass on tit bits of history & other fascinating stories. A thoroughly enjoyable day of cruising and highly recommended.

We booked Mike for a scenic canal boat cruise as part of a low key Hen Party. The whole set-up was very professional. Mike communicated quickly and supported our planning for the day. Some absolute bonues were that we could bring own food and light refreshments and play list of music making it exactly what we needed the time on the water to be. Needless to say the Bride was impressed and had a ball.

A 3 hour gentle and relaxed cruise along the canal through Regents Park through to Camden Lock with the family. What a lovely way to enjoy London from a different angle. Mike is the perfect host - providing an unobtrusive commentary along the way.
