This was a very enjoyable trip. So much to see, incredible how many people now live near to the river. I have already recommended this to a number of people. Weather not good but we were under cover. Must be amazing to do this in sunny weather and sit on top of the boat. Am now looking to do another river trip, hopefully to Liverpool.

Very knowledgeable guide, always happy to answer random questions from us. Our group only had two people so it was a great personalised experience!

For £10 it’s the perfect hour cruise. Some narration as well giving historical background which was great

A very relaxing hour cruising the quays. Lasts an hour so great value for an hour

Absolutely amazing experience from start to finish, staff very friendly
