My husband and I went on the boat in the afternoon and the sun was shining. We decided to sit on the top deck of the boat. The staff was helpful whilst I was getting on the boat. There is a bar on the lower deck that you can use throughout the journey up until the last few minutes before alighting. The guide was very informative throughout the journey along the river and he was quite comical. The journey lasted 45 minutes and it was well worth the £7.50 (each) that we paid. I think that maybe it would have been a different story had the weather been bad.

We took this river trip on a hot afternoon. It was nice as a trip on the river but there is really not much to see of York from the river that is interesting and the boat travels in one direction and then back again and then in the other direction, so you do not travel very far. The commentary was confined to what can be seen from the river, so in areas where there are just green fields either side there would have been an opportunity talk about other things in York that are worth seeing. The river warehouses have all been reused as accommodation or restaurants and this was interesting to see.
Would not do again and would only recommend if you have done everything else in York or you just want an hour on the water.

What a fantastic chilling night cruise up and down the river Ouze.
Well stocked bar, full running commentary. Up to the Archbishops Palace, place of residence, beautiful old world England, then the Milienium Bridge in it's full flood lite night glory, a must for photographers.
It is errory yet so Tranquil.
This a breakaway from the beautiful hustle of the City, a must for any travller.
Did it, got the pictures and really enjoyed the cruise. Money well spent

We did this for our wedding anniversary. We are local but had never been on the river. It was very very good. The commentary was the captain talking while he was steering. He was funny and very knowledgeable!!!!!!!! Also it was not expensive.
