Chester: Half-Hour City Cruise

It was a very pleasant and informative 30 minute boat ride. I went with my two boys aged 7 and 10, they both really enjoyed it and were talking about the things we learned on the journey home!

Easy to buy tickets on mobile and regular service. I was born in Chester,but still found the tour very informative. All in all excellent experience. Bob.

We were with a wheelchair user. The staff were all amazing helping us on and off and nothing seemed to be to much trouble for them.

A lovely way to break up the day and you can enjoy a little drink too.

Loved it Learned A lot of Chester that I didn’t know
