Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went on the last boat trip of the day, with only a few other people on the boat. This meant that we could choose wherever we wanted to sit. The skipper was very informative and chatty, even though he had done many 100s of commentaries before. We enjoyed a soft drink on bord during our trip. The skipper said that someone had seen a kingfisher on the previous trip. We were a bit sceptical, but we did get to see one !!

Fairly standard 40 minute trip up & down the Wye. The sort of touristy thing you do the once because you are there, and unlikely to return. We were glad we did it. The running commentary was rather good. Especially considering it was the last one of the day, and very few people on board.
Tea & coffee + some cold drinks available on board. No toilet. Most of the seats are inside. (Or take a drink from the Saracen's Head)

A nice relaxing 40 minute trip along the river with an interesting commentary from the captain, we even spotted a Kingfisher along the riverbank!
Worth considering when in the area.

Very pleasant trip along the Wye. Knowledgable commentary by the captain. It’s a lovely way to experience the river and enjoy the scenery from a different perspective. Comfortable boat which even had snacks and drinks served to your seat!

We had a great cruise. Really interesting and informative commentary while we went up the river a short distance and back. Tea/coffee/soft drinks available along with a few snack. We didn't see any kingfishers this time but it was nice seeing all the other people enjoying the river. Also good facilities where the trip started from.

We chose to take this short river cruise having seen it advertised in our accommodation. In the morning we visited the high part of Symonds Yat and so the river cruise made for a pleasant contrast. The commentary on board was not intrusive and as there were only a small number on board, we were able to enjoy some sunshine and river views from the open aft deck space.

Can recommend this as a way to see the area from a different perspective.

A lovely day started with a beautiful boat trip from Symonds Yat along the River Wye.
The 40 mins trip included a great commentary along the way.

Tea and coffee were provided, Very friendly staff who were eager to point out the kingfishers which were hard to spot but we managed to see one.

Beautiful boat trip from Symonds Yat along the River Wye.
Reasonable priced for a 40 mins trip with great commentary along the way. Very friendly staff who were eager to point out the kingfisher which we were delighted by.
