Amazing way to round off our trip to York, the lights were beautiful and it’s a great way to see a new side of the city. Loved the music that was playing as well

River Ouse floodlight cruise was Not good. There is nothing to see to see at night. It was really boring and I would not recommend to anyone.

The two young men Stu and Alison were very professional and a credit to your company

Good way to see the city from another view , excellent staff added to the experience

This activity was amazing, definitely would highly recommend this trip,
