Trip was good but we were disappointed to find that for our booked time, people who had turned up without a booking were allowed on before us meaning we were not allowed an outside seat. Therefore, we had to wait 45 minutes on a very hot day before we could board the next vessel.

We had a very friendly and informative Captain. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and thought it was good value. The seating was socially distanced. The only downside was the seats had seen better days. I would recommend this trip for a sunny day.

Received a call on the morning of our trip to say leaving 15 mins earlier than originally booked which was fine. Arrived at the pick up point to find no outdoor space left for us so had to sit underneath. Literally went 500 yards down the river and had to pull in as the sound system didn’t work downstairs!! After about 20 minutes we were told the trip was cancelled and they took us back to where we had started - we all received a voucher to re-book but as were leaving the next day we have opted for a full refund. Have emailed early this morning, asking them to acknowledge my email but it’s nearly 8pm and I’ve heard nothing - can’t be doing with the hassle really - anyway, I’m sure had we completed the trip, it would have been fine!
