Very enjoyable- driver full of local knowledge

I really enjoyed this experience; it was the perfect way to spend a rainy September morning. The captain explained important monuments and buildings and it was a good way of seeing the area. Very good value as it is only £9 each, interesting if you have never visited before. Staff were friendly and café was reasonably priced (£1 for a much appreciated hot drink). I would recommend this to anyone!

An informative way to spend an hour or two

Very reasonably priced cruise and quite informative given that it is only around 30 minutes each way. Get your timings right and this is an easy/pleasant way for visitor's to Manchester to get out to the Quay area and take in the various attractions for a couple of hours

very enjoyable trip to see what is behind the scenes.

Was very good but could not hear guide because children allowed to shout and use electronic games. Should be asked to turn off and listen for sake of others who want to hear.

Good. Enjoyed it. Length of trip just right

Would have liked to have been able to get further into the city, but would recommend for a pleasant hour's float on the water (best in good weather).

A great way to see the city from a different perspective

Really interesting trip. Didn't quite get an excellent - though nearly - because commentary was sometimes a little difficult to hear outside.
