“A minor point. In the evening when we had our meal, we were innudated with moths. It would be great if there could be some sort of netting that could be set up to prevent the moths coming in - possibly on a rail around the edge of the table.
Also, there wasn't a bar on the houseboat and for 12 people one cool box was not big enough. When the itinery mentioned "in time for sundowners" on the boat, I assumed there would be a bar. It was a real pity as that would have been a nice touch.
But BiBi was just great!”
