Can you see yourself viewing the wonders of Paris from a rowing boat? Or what about Amsterdam from a canal? The delight of touring rowing means that your non-rowing partner can come along too because all boats are coxed and need a steers person. And tours include side-trips to cultural and foodie venues as well - so they won’t be bored!
