It was a cool idea but unfortunately the ferry broke down on the other side of the river meaning we had to walk to a train station to get the train back.

Thank you for the review, we are very sorry that we had to take the ferry out of service due to operational difficulties. A full refund will be issued if you contact your booking agent.
