Wonderful Treat
09 September 2021
The service was friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The Skipper (Laurie) was interestingly informative and amusing. The venue was picturesque and a beautifully sunny day topped the experience off nicely.

Not as historic/ scenic as I'd expected
24 July 2021
The staff were all friendly and attentive. The boat was well run and Covid-safe. Nice sandwiches and cake and tea refills. While it made for a pleasant 90 minute trip I was hoping/ expecting to see more of York itself. As it was, the cruise only showed the resistance of the Archbishop of York and the pleasant river sides.

Disappointed
13 June 2021
We couldn't hear the commentator at all & his voice was distorted. It wasn't a historic tour, just countryside. The afternoon tea was ok, the cream had been put on the table before we arrived & it had gone very runny & split. We purchased this as a special treat for our Ruby wedding & should have received a glass of prosecco, which we didn't! Very disappointed & would not recommend.

Afternoon Tea
11 June 2021
Cruise was a little boring, majority was just looking at the river bank. Food, although lovely and fresh, wasn’t very exciting, didn’t even notice the scones at first, they were so small. Staff were a little scruffy in appearance, but were very cheerful and attentive!

Fantastic surprise
05 August 2020
A pleasurable experience from start to finish. The Captain and crew were very welcoming. The vessel was very clean and seating well spaced out as per Covid guidelines. The Captain gave a good briefing covering all aspects of safety and detailing how the cruise would run. Afternoon tea was served and was delicious. The crew were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The Captain gave a good talk which was both informative and humourous. I would recommend this cruise to anyone wanting a relaxing river experience.
