We found this such a great way to travel . So chilled & great fun. The kids loved it. Such an adventure. I found... More

Excellent prices; friendly banter from the crew. Lots of helpful advice. You can jump on and off to see the sights. Easy to get around. A whole different perspective on the Vity!

A great day out with young grandchildren, get in to Bristol docks on the Seniors free park and ride bus pass, walk along the docks, spend time in the free M shed as you pass it, then take the ferry trip from terminus to terminus just for the pleasure of the trip. Cafe stops at every boarding point should you... More

Dear Mike and Team Members...Thank you so much for a lovely trip. We saw so much wildlife on the Classic Gorge trip, just the right amount of people on board and the tour information was perfect. We found it particularly touching that you tried to wait for the family with four kids that had booked, to turn up because you... More

Bristol Ferry Boats now saved by a consortium and that's good news. The ferry boats are easiliy recognisable; blue and yellow lovery and are reliable and a great way to get around and to see this historic and vibrant city. Try getting a Bus/Boat Combo Ticket and sharing your days between CitySightSeeing Bristol's open top buses and the ferries with... More

We took the train to Templemeads for a Saturday lunch and afternoon of gentle drinking. Found this little gem right next to the station. Very friendly crew and low cost. It was a great way to arrive at the harbour for our afternoon. We changed on the pontoon near Arnolfini and another boat quickly arrived to take us to the... More

I have used the ferry service a number of times and always proves to be a good day out when hosting visitors. I often take the ferry from the centre to the Pump House pub and walk to Clifton Suspension Bridge and a return costs between 3/4 pounds. Great value and you get to see a few of the sights... More
