We had an amazing time and the routes to follow were clearly marked to the point where it was difficult to go off course, the boat was sufficient for two people - wouldn't recommend more than that. was truly relaxing.

What a great way to spend our first 2 nights in Knysna! The boat is fully equipped with everything you need to have a comfortable stay. The staff are very helpful and organized which makes for a super experience. This is a great holiday for adults and kids alike - being on the lagoon for the sunsets was simply breathtaking! Only advice, take all the food you require as once you are out of the Knysna Houseboats Dock, there is nowhere to stop off to eat or get food.

Superb. 5 out of 5
