A good value trip up and down the river. Plenty to see on both sides and a good prerecorded audio guide to point out the sights.

Took an afternoon cruise to the Iron bridge on the Lady Diana. A nice light boat with big windows so you can easily see out. We booked online which was very easy and it wasn’t packed so felt safe in view of Covid. Seats have Perspex screens on the back and are well-spaced. The man piloting the boat gave commentary during the cruise and he was very knowledgeable about Chester and surrounding areas, it’s history and fascinating facts - lovely friendly man who kept the passengers engaged and entertained. And there is a bar! Enjoyed a nice glass of wine :0) I would highly recommend this as a lovely way to pass a couple of hours and learn some if the history of the area. Thank you. Most enjoyable.

What a lovely little cruise we have come to chester for a little mini moon given the whole covid situation. Everything was well explained and social distancing followed. We ordered procecco on booking and it was lovely to drink as we sailed. The commentary was lovely and we where asked if we wanted info or not. Wonderful crew thanks for making our mini honeymoon one to remember.

We did the 30 minute trip on midday on a Saturday and although you have to queue half an hour before departure if you want top deck, you’re in a perfectly good position on the bottom deck. Lovely short informative trip up and down a little bit of the river. Very beautiful and a lovely thing to do. Will recommend!

Very pleasant little 1/2 hr trip on a very clean boat, Covid screens between seats which were clean and did not impair vision. Informative commentary which could have been a little louder but got most of the info. Refreshments available if required. Price reasonable. Enjoyed our trip.
