“A trip on the river”

Prince Bishop River Cruiser
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We were a party of 14 ladies, we got vouchers for our trip from wowcher, it was a very wet, but warm afternoon on 17th June. We had the upstairs of the boat to ourselves. Which due to the weather we had to stay inside,The staff were very good, they got us drinks from the bar, which was located downstairs. They took photographs for us. We had a very good trip, documentary of the landmarks on the river, excellent tour, well worth doing.

We used a Wowcher voucher for our river cruise. Because of the regatta we didn't have access to part of the river, so instead of an hour it was 45 mins, I was a little bit annoyed about this at first, but once you go under the first bridge you could be absolutely anywhere! It is so tranquil and scenic. The guide was knowledgable and humorous, and waiter service to our seats from the bar, we really enjoyed it!
Definitely recommend!

Turned up on a wet miserable day and luckily instead of three daily trips there was only one and it was at 2pm and would leave if 8 people turned up. Good value for money and we spent the hour on the inside upper deck and popped out to take photos. It was a very cold day and door had to be left open so that the commentary could be heard. Great photos of the Cathedral from the river.
There was drinks to purchase if needed and they did hire out the entire boat to students for parties etc..

An interesting and informative trip. There were seats under cover and out side too. The guide gave us lots of facts in a humourous way. We learnt things about Durham that we couldn't have found out ourselves! The staff were all friendly and chatty. No student discount was offered.

An undemanding river cruse running between the University cricket ground and the cathedral. Plenty of information and a really gentle cruise around the Durham headland on the Wear.
