Yes, it an piece of absolute brilliant engineering but once you have witnessed one set of locks.....you'll find the rest look exactly the same, only a lot less interesting!
Maybe it was just me but the scenery certainly wasn't that great and once you have seen water gushing through a partially opened gate.....that's about it, the same happens over and over again!
Possibly because we had this huge China cargo ship travel along side us for the whole trip maybe ruined the experience for me but it is something I will not be doing again.
I would agree about the entire day, but at the beginning it was a wonderful experience, I will remember it for a long time.
