What people are saying about York

Wonderful customer service and great cruise!

We were a group of ten (four from US and six from U.K.). I had planned this lunch cruise as part of a day in York with our U.K. relatives who live about 35 minutes from York. We headed out from Wakefield with lots of time to spare but the traffic suddenly stopped on the highway and there we sat. We watched the time slip away and knew we would miss our tour and lunch. When we finally arrived 15 minutes late, there was our boat! The skipper had asked the other passengers and crew if they could give us that 15 minutes to get there and they agreed. They all clapped when we boarded. I was so relieved! The staff were friendly and the food delicious. I looked at my phone and saw that a representative had emailed me to let me know the skipper was trying to reach me. I emailed back to let him know we had made it. Thank you, Neil, for your great customer service! I can’t say enough good things about this company.

The 1st course was overcooked and bland, the chicken was dry!

The scenery was great but the food was NOT worth £30.00 per head. The meal was very bland, the vegetables were overcooked and the chicken was dry - I would normally have sent it back but knew we were on limited time. Also we were rerouted due to a person threatening to jump - we did not get any apology at all. The views were great as we went out to the rural countryside, and not the York architectural route as we had booked for.

Great fun. A definite must when in York.

Great fun for the family. We each had a turn to drive. The weather helped. The attendant explained the policy efficiently and he was very pleasant. The online booking was easy - I think you might need to highlight better that you need to select 10am, or 11am. I would highly recommend. THANK YOU.

Lovely relaxing boat trip with cream tea

90 minutes on the River Ouse from the centre of York to the surrounding countryside. Afternoon tea was very nice, although basic and surprised they did not serve Yorkshire tea!
