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.

I thought it was going to be boring but i love it!

I really enjoyed this boat ride, there is a bar on the boat and plenty of chairs inside and out. But what i liked most of all was the voice and personality of the captain and tour guide. He was hilarious, i found everything he said extremely comical even when he wasnt trying to be funny, or maybe he was im not sure. We got lucky so it was nice weather. But i really found it interesting and lovely. maybe 10 minutes longer than i would have liked but maybe thats because i was tired from walking all day

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.

Relaxing trip with informative and well spoken guide

Really enjoyed this brief excursion on the River Ouse. Made even better by a spell of warm weather, seeing the guards in the park doing the gun salute, and an informative and eloquent guide named Keith! A fun way to find hour a bit more about York.

An excellent outstanding informative Cruise

This Cruise is a must for any visitor to York. With the relaxation of a cruise you glide up and down the Ouse with an easy and dignity embracing all the relevant and informative knowledge of this glorious city. Well done everyone. Thank you.
