It was a wet rainy afternoon and we were worried that we wouldn’t see very well inside but there were clean windows all round and the seating was spaced out enough that we saw everything apart from the top of some of the tall buildings.

Fantastic. Really good guide called Jack. Found out so many things I didn't know. As I am disabled I had a mobility scooter. They were wonderful. Helped me get on board with my scooter and there was a lift to the upper deck.

We were welcomed aboard and sat on the top deck. Leigh or Lion? Our guide was very funny and knowledgable. We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. We even liked the jokes! Well done !

It was highly informative and Rosy, the guide was exceptional. She was amazing and jovial.

on time, easy to find lovely little boat trip on the river
