Canal Boat ride in London

We have watched the entire series of Cruising the Cut on Amazon Prime and are keen on a canal boat ride. I did see a number of tour boat and overnight rental options but would like something in between: a ride on a real canal boat that doesn't have a bunch of just seats with loudspeaker narration on it but is driven by a driver - essentially a private ride... this way we get a more intimate ride and maybe see below deck cabin - does something like this exist in London?

Near Camden Lock and Camden Market there are a few Regent Canal cruises. Here are two of the companies I just found online: The London Waterbus Company, and The London Canal Boat Cruise. There may be other canal rides; just check online. Others may have more intimate knowledge. Good Luck!

I know this I. P. I was just reporting what is available in London. What they are looking for is out in the countryside; not in commercial urban London where you would need a license to carry passengers.
