We had a fantastic time. Very friendly staff, awesome captain and commentary. The meal was lovely (Entrees not the best, but we both had the steak which we'd reccomend. The lemon tart was also scrumptious). Excellent value for money. Would highly recommend for singles, couples, families.

It was a lively trip, the weather wasn't great, the captain was very knowledgeable about the river and surrounds
Good cruise but room for improvement.

We got a message at 1.33pm asking for us to pre order the food or to be at ticket box by 5pm. I looked at the menu and replied at 2.05pm.i received a reply great thankyou. Then we also got to the ticket box by 5pm and paid for 2 choc puddings. So on the cruises we were sitting at the first table at the doorway. They came collected all the tickets and then we were the last people to receive our meal while people had finished they meals. When we got our meal and meal was nice they then came and said to us sorry we had run out of choc puddings so could we have the cheese cake instead it was abit late to say no as other people were getting the desserts. They did offer a free can of drink. So was not happy about that at all as this was a anniversary day for us and choc pudding was a special thing that would have completed that special day as it did the same on the same day 23 years ago. Found that lighting could be a little better for the eating timeas people at the front were sitting in dark to eat as i saw a couple turn on the phone light to look at they meals. The speaker could be a little clearer to hear the information. They is always room for more improvements. Thankyou

Great Tour

A great tour of the harbor and sites. The Capitan was informative and knew a fair bit of the area. Not a bad price for the time.
