Review of: Lunch Cruise

This is a nice enough way to spend a couple of hours seeing the sights along the river. Crew are very friendly and the food decent.

Loved the York boat cruise this August as we learned about the river Ouse and the deep history of the city (Romans then Vikings!) along with some fun facts to share and tell to friends. Thank you so much Naedine & Stan, Nina and Danny

myself and my husband went on this river cruise as part of our anniversary and we had a lovely time. There was a nice hot drink included in the price which seemed very reasonable to me.

The cruise was a nice way to enjoy some of the sites of York and to learn a little of the history. Just remember to dress appropriately. It can get very cold in the evening on the water.

Jumped on board on a whim as the boat was about to leave! Sat downstairs undercover but had a great view with informed running commentary. Very enjoyable. One word of warning - there is a bar selling refreshments which of course enhances the trip! However...More

Easy parking and access, surprisingly close to the City centre. A pleasant day for sitting on the top deck, and a well-informed guide

Hi, the Ice Cream boat has cleats on the side where the boat can tie up alongside so there is no need to tie the boat up anywhere else
