“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!”

“Unfortuantly as it was December the weather was unpredictable and was not good. I was diddssapointed and just wish we had done it later in year and we probably won't go abroad again at new year as looking for some sun and not much rain! But you can not control these things and we made the best of it. Great group and fantastic new years Eve Party ..Thank You Explore - one of the highlights!! A great start to 2020”
