What people are saying about Queensferry

We didn't have the greatest of starts, due to us arriving late, but thankfully the boat waiting for us. All of the crew were very friendly, the service for the cream tea was excellent. It was great to hear about the local history and facts of the area as we sailed around. A very enjoyable 90 minutes, well worth the money.

Excellent trip on the Forth. Stunning views of the 3 bridges, close up of seals,Rosyth Dockyard and Blackness Castle. A must see experience. Staff very knowledgeable and helpful. The cream tea scones and coffee added to the experience. We would go again.

Absolutely brilliant from start to finish, very informative and professional, brilliant day, I’d definitely recommend to friends and family, thanks again!

Really interesting commentary by the Captain as well as the recorded commentary.

We all enjoyed the tour it was great getting the information on the Bridges
