It was nice trip on the boat, we had very little talk maybe 10 minutes. And lots of time taken up 'buying drinks' roof was on so couldnt see much. But only a short ride and not expensive and was nice enough...

Thank you for the review. We couldn't remember a trip when we were not able to deliver the tour due to thirsty customers. If this happens we include commentary on the return and it's not cut short. If the roof was on it was either cold or rain due, but you can get a good views and most customer photos here are from inside. Yes sometimes you have to lean and you are encouraged to come up the cockpit at times.

We left plenty of time but couldnt find the departure point, the postcode provided did not correspond to the meeting point and I could not select the supposed map link from the instructions as it would not highlight on my phone. I phoned the local contact who was extremely unhelpful.

This tour was great. We've been to Bath and done the Hop-on Hop-off bus a few times now, so was interested in seeing Bath from another perspective. The river cruise was excellent. Only a short tour and make sure you stand up in the cabin with the captain! Full of interesting facts.
