Brilliant and informative
Oct. 2021 • Friends
I wanted to book the evening cruise as I thought I’d get the best of both worlds by starting in daylight and finishing at night, maybe with a lovely sunset inbetween. No sunset sadly, but I did see a kingfisher fly past a few times! I’m afraid I can’t remember the name of our skipper but he had a Viking look about him and he was very informative and funny. One thing that could be improved is communication about pre booking/buying on the day/when to turn up as we decided to wing it and just buy a ticket when the boat arrived and were waiting for about 45 mins as we saw a sign that said to turn up early but we didn’t actually need to. Also bring a coat if you want to sit on the roof!

Thank you for your review. You were lucky to see a Kingfisher, not many do. We are sorry to hear the communication regarding purchasing a ticket was confusing. We do recommend that you are there early to purchase tickets as it can be very busy in summer.

Ignorant skipper
Oct. 2021
Watching sunset from the boat was a lovely experience, especially with a drink served by the charming crew member. What was intensely irritating was the fantasy commentary where false facts were fed to many people who may not have realised that they were being told wrong information: York has the oldest Guildhall in England (wrong London's Guildhall is 48 years older); York Minster is the biggest Cathedral in the Country (Liverpool Cathedral is quite a lot bigger as is St. Pauls In London); St Peter's school is the oldest in the UK (its not even the oldest in York as that honour goes to the Minster school however King's Canterbury is 30 years older). York has enough impressive history without these exagerated claims. Not only was so much of the information incorrect, it felt that we were being patronised by an ignoramous. A bit disappointing.

Perfect way to spend an hour
Oct. 2021
Great way to spend an hour exploring the river from a different view. The skipper was very informative and it was a perfect start to the evening. Went in October so it starts getting dark at 6pm but the boat has lights which light up the banks slightly and its very atmospheric with the city lights too. Small bar on board which sells hot drinks and alcohol. Bottom deck is heated, top deck has the best view but you need to be warmly dressed!

Messing about on the river
Boarding boat was fine. There were safety announcements. The commentary was decent and clear. Refreshments were available if desired. As it got darker and not many buildings are lit up there was not much to see but it was a relaxing hour on the river. You need to be dressed warmly also as there is no heating on the vessel.

Just okay for me
Aug. 2021
Did the hour early evening river cruise during a girls trip away and I probably wouldn't do it again but it was an okay way to kill an hour before dinner. The staff were nice, especially the lady loading us onto the boat and the captain was informative. However, I think the drinks are so expensive for what they are - £23 for a bottle of Prosecco?

Beautiful calm evening

Loved the cruise only reason it didn't get 5 stars was because they played some awful raockabilly music that spoilt my relaxation.
