The Happy Houseboaters experience was really nice and up to expectations. On Saturday morning Chantel and Michael took us to Broadway market, where we were told about the history of some of the stalls in the market and also some of the restaurants in the area. It was really nive as it was that kind of information that you wouldn't normally get on the usual touristic track. Following some shopping in the market Chantel and Michael took us to their newly refurbished, and absolutely awesome, houseboat. We had some drinks on the boat, as well as a light lunch with finger food from the market. On Saturday night we were took to 2 different bars; the first one was quite high-end and really nice, while the second one was more of a classic London pub. On Sunday we were took to a very nice bar and restaurant for the Sunday roast. I have to say, the meat wasn't great, but the overall experience was really enjoyable. We also managed to meet some new people, which was nice. Overall, I would definitely recommend this experience to someone who visits a city for the second or third time, or for at least a week, since the experince shows a different side of the city.

Wow - I had an absolutely incredible time on the Happy Houseboaters trip and I highly recommend it to everyone! From the start, Chantelle and Micheal were amazing hosts. They are so friendly and warm, they immediately made us all feel like we'd been friends for years. That was really important to me - because I was a solo traveler, and I chose this experience because it looked like a great way to meet some cool people, and also see some local spots that I wouldn't have experienced just by myself. Well Chantelle and Michael (and the rest of our awesome group) did not disappoint! Chantelle and Michael have a great knowledge of the Broadway Market - and all the best yummy stalls to visit. It was really fun tasting the food, but then also deciding as a group what to bring back for our picnic on the boat. When we got to the Houseboat, all of us were completely in love with it's charming decor and modern amenities. Michael and Chantelle taught us a lot about the house boating culture in London, and I think most of us walked away with the desire to move to a houseboat! Sunday Roast the next day was wonderful too! It was great to enjoy such a traditional (and delicious) London experience with a great group of folks. This was my first City Host experience - but it certainly wont be my last. I hope that I can come back to London and meet up with Chantelle and Michael again some day too!

Happy boaters were incredible host couple and mum of Chantelle. Michael and Chantelle is such perfect lovely host. Such warm welcome I received when we met, they brought me to the local market and explained every single corners of the stalls and introduce owners to us, we did grocery shopping together and brought food to their amazing boat! We sailed through the canal while enjoying great conversation with other travellers and locals and brunch- it was priceless. You can see pictures here. http:blog.naver.commilkroad220820496432 We met for the drink at night, danced, laughed, talked and grabbed the best bagle at the end. Sunday roast organised by hosts were truly English, and I enjoyed every minutes of it. So happy have spent my time in London with them and other lovely friends been there with me. I have such fantastic time exchanging ideas of life and get to know more about london, and got new friends that I will look forward to see somewhere again.

What a trip! Chantelle and Michael gave me an experience I will never forget and gave me an insight into both London and Hackney, and also canal life I never knew or had experienced before. From the beginning they made myself and all the other guests feel so welcome and part of their home and lives. From showing us the funkiest restaurants, the coolest pubs, the best night life spots to cruising on their barge (which is absolutely beautiful by the way!) around the coolest parts of London, it was a weekend I will never forget. I thoroughly enjoyed their company (and their cocktails!) and they are genuinely lovely people. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone, even to Londoners themselves as you simply cannot experience what Chantelle and Michael are offering you without their knowledge.....I should know I've lived here all my life!

As Londoners already; myself and my friend booked on to this trip to discover a new part of London we didn't know and to experience the city through a different way of life (on the houseboat.) We had such a fantastic weekend and learnt so much about East London and discovered new, exciting places to visit - the original trip description was really accurate which was great and it was exactly what we were after. The brunch on the barge was our particular highlight; visiting the Broadway market and actually getting to pick what food we wanted and soak up the atmosphere (and the free tasters!) was such a lovely touch. And then having a cruise down the river and learning how to open the old fashioned lock was great fun and really interesting. I think what made the weekend so brilliant however, was Chantelle and Michael themselves. They are fantastic hosts, brimming with friendliness, positivity and fun and really make you feel welcome from the start. They have a great knowledge of the area and good connections there - it felt like really special treatment which a lot of thought went into and its lovely to see the local connections they have. We would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to experience East London in a unique way - you are in really good hands and will have really lovely hosts! Thanks Chantelle and Michael for a great weekend!
