Lovely Day
I bought this as a 10th Anniversary gift to my husband. We had a lovely time, we stayed for 2 nights at the hotel suggested by Topsail Charters and got up to a bright sunny morning on the Friday. The crew couldn't have been more helpful and the whole experience was just great. I would definitely recommend it

Barge Trip
I bought this gift as a wedding present and was very pleased with the prompt service and quick delivery of the gift by the Getting Personal team. They also replied quickly to my emails and answered the queries I had. I intend to buy the same gift later this year for another member of the family who is getting married.

Sailing Along
The trip was given to my husband for his 60th Birthday. We arrived in Ipswich to a slighlty sunny/cloudy day. On board the staff were very friendly and the food was very tasty. The Skipper and his mate had a great sense of humour. Even though it started to rain and then pour down we had a wonderful time. We would recommend it. We left the Barge looking like drowned rats but it was a brilliant experience and would love to do it again
