fantastic crossing to IoW in the morning had a great day their. however on the return the weather had changed and crossing was cancelled. it was just by chance we discovered this qnd only just made it to the catamaran in teaming rain. no transport to get there. on arrival at Portsmouth Dock we had to get a taxi at our own expense back to Southsea to pick up my car. no help or assistance in Portsmouth. I appreciate most of the passengers are commuters and do it every day. but there are tourists who may struggle without assistance. cold, wet maybe a little frightened in an un-familiar city and no idea how to get back to Southsea

Thoroughly enjoyed our Old Portsmouth pub and History treasure hunt. It is great that the hunt takes you to look at little jewels of interest and gives you facts about the area in which we have lived, but not known. We were able to talk to a couple of residents who were very friendly. Standing outside the school reading about the history I suddenly became aware that it might be the wrong place to stand. We would thoroughly recommend the adventure with a couple of relaxed stops at the various pubs, alcohol not mandatory

This was very enjoyable and good fun. It was well thought out and not too heavy. We loved looking for the clues, saw some interesting historic things we would have completely missed and learnt fun historical facts. Visited some really great pubs too! Thoroughly recommended.

A fantastic, first time experience on the hovercraft, very quick and smooth. Staff were friendly and very accommodating especially when I needed to leave Isle of Wight earlier than expected. Loved the whole day and the hovercraft crossing was a bonus!!!

A very engaging couple of hours, lots of fun and lots of history. The clues were a nice mix of the difficult and simple, so even young children could join in. My teenage son was captivated.
