A pleasant cruise up and down the Ouse. Despite the inclement weather we had a great time. The guide was informative with just the right amount of detail. The boat was comfortable and the hot drinks were most welcome.

Hosts were polite and informative but as for the journey down the river we could hardly see anything they were talking about due to trees and foliage on the banks of the river

The captain had a wonderful soft voice but sadly we could hardly hear his commentary. The seating on the upper deck needs attention and not fit for purpose.
