What people are saying about Manchester

We where very lucky to find this and to be fair the experience seemed too good to be true and such good value ( that until the cruise turned up we wondered is this for real - yes it is ) The cruise boat was clean and airy. We where lucky as he heavens opened as we boarded but this only added to the experience and intimate coziness of the cruise. It’s November so not packed but that makes it feel like a hidden gem and for us felt very romantic. Drinks available onboard very reasonable and there is no commercialism which is refreshing and keeps it real The staff are so friendly and it was just an enjoyable 45 mins. The guide playing is not in your face but continuous and even locals would learn points of interest We loved it and would certainly recommend it - even finding it (without Google cheating) was fun! No big boards or sales men just a tiny sign pointing you. We found a good pub The Dockyard across the way as we waited for the boat to dock A great highlight to our day

This was a very enjoyable little river cruise. The crew were really cheery people and made the trip worthwhile. Would definitely recommend this to anyone! It was raining in the way back unfortunately but still a worthwhile little trip down the Manchester ship canal!
