10 of us turned up on a wet Saturday after having been infused with alcohol in the local hostelry! The cruise was informative, humorous and engaging. We had a real blast and the staff totally made the trip for us, thank you! The cruise was interesting but the company was more spectacular!

Can recommend a trip with Sabrina Boats. Our trip was with a coach party in the afternoon so cannot comment on the special themed trips which take place. The commentary was very informative. We were served with tea, coffee and biscuits and the ride is very smooth. Staff very helpful. Toilets on board.

Very relaxing 45 minutes and certainly the best way to see the main attractions of Shrewsbury. Very informative commentary. Refreshments reasonably priced. We were on the top deck and it took the whole 45 minutes for us (31)to be served and to finish our drinks so I don't know how they would have coped if the bottom deck had been... More

My husband and I took a trip on the Sabrina on a beautifully sunny day last week. We thoroughly enjoyed every second. Wonderful views and a very interesting and amusing commentary. I would strongly recommend this to anyone visiting Shrewsbury.

We are both in our mid twenties so felt we were a bit "too young" to do this but we honestly really enjoyed it. Really nice staff, hilarious commentary and cheap drinks.

Hello, sorry to hear the views weren't to your liking. We did inform everyone that weekend that due to the Regatta we had to go upstream.
