The river trip came recommended by friends and in some aspects it was amazing, in others it was poor. We were kept waiting for forty minutes as the boat wouldn’t start and no one made any attempt to tell us there was a delay. We...More

We booked for the river bus with great anticipation even though £20.00 per person seemed a tad steep. We were hoping for some hidden treasures and boy were we disappointed. To begin with the boat was over subscribed. The captain re-assuring is that the boat...More

Joined a tour with a crowded boat, including a party group. We saw the seals, lots of them! BUT! We couldn’t hear the commentary over the noise of the party group. I am sure that this is not a regular occurrence, but what we could...More
