As locals we thought we should have a look at our own city from a different perspective than the obvious modes of transport. It was an eye opener and we thoroughly enjoyed the 90 minutes and the commentary by the staff. Would highly recommend this trip.

Fun river cruise, accompanied by friendly seagulls and free entertainment. We learned a lot about the area and its history. Children were invited to steer the boat, which was an amazing experience. Superb staff and Captain.
