Dragonfly Cruises is one of only two canal cruises featured within this book of Wales Top 100 Attractions. I have to say that a trip on this fine vessel is worth every penny. There are many of these canal style boat trips throughout the UK, all offering a good trip. But what I liked about this particular cruise, is that this is a family run business that’s operated in a very professional way. Also what sets this particular Canal Cruise apart from many others, is its beautiful setting. Running two trips a day up and down this very beautiful part of Wales. You can just turn up on the day, but booking ahead is very advisable due to the popularity of this particular canal. Also what really impressed me was the adaptation of this boat to accommodate disabled visitors which I saw in action on the day of my visit.
