“Wedding party charter”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We have just returned from our wedding party charter on River Palace and it was a fantastic party. The crew ensured that all of our guests were looked after and that everything ran smoothly. We were blessed by the weather, so spent much of the evening on the top deck taking in the beautiful sights of York. The buffet food was tasty and plentiful and the DJ helped the party atmosphere along. If you want a party that's a little different then I would highly recommend this.

“Average”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

The boat trip on the river was not very exciting as we thought. There was nothing much to see. However the crew was very helpful and the commentary was very enjoyable.

“Poor”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Tedious, with a very random narration. You will see more walking the York walls and walking the streets of York

“River cruise”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

We took a one hour river cruise. Arrive early to get the soft padded seats at the back of the boat. The bar prices are steep with £2.90 for a 275ml beer. The cruise price of £8.50 was worth it. The skipper provided commentary for the voyage and all the staff were friendly.

“Not really much to see”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

As it was a warm afternoon we thought it would be pleasant to sail down the river. Whilst the captain was very good, gave many historical details, and made her talk amusing there was very little to see. We got a few glimpses of York Minster through the tree and I mean glimpses, We didn't really see anything new.

A pleasant rest but not something I would recommend
