    It was a lovely time of day to view the Swan River and surrounds.

    My husband and I had a wonderful time on the Captain Cook Cruises vessel admiring the beautiful Swan River precinct from Elizabeth Quay. A perfectly warm and calm cruise for relaxation. It would've been beneficial if the crew had asked us if we wanted a cup of tea which we never received even though the tour stated that there was unlimited free tea onboard. Also we would've liked it if the twilight cruise could extend the time to make it a 2 hour tour instead of 1.5 hours. I also thought that the cruise vessel would've stopped for a few moments to capture the sunset over the river for everyone to have a chance to quickly take photos. Otherwise it was an extremely pleasant cruise with good information given to us by the captain about all the landmarks that we went passed.

    very good commentary however the cheese plate was way overpriced

    Enjoyed the trip overall, very disappointed in the cheese platter considering the cost and something worth considering would be to clean down the windows on the inside as there was lots of fingerprints on them. Didn't spoil the view but made taking photos a bit hit and miss. All in all I enjoyed it and would recommend to family and friends. I thought the cost of the trip was reasonable.

    Romantic yet informative

    My partner and i found this tour to be very romantic as the cruise was very nice with a great atmosphere provided by the staff. Was also very relaxing/informative with the beautiful scenery and the captains commentary. Thumbs up all around as you finish the tour off at a reasonable hour to admire the city from queens key afterwards. Would highly recommend as we had a great time
