We always love to go out on the water and this cruise on the Ouse is a nice way to relax after all the walking that you do in York, but we found it very pricey! For 45 minutes it was £7.50-£8.50 Adult, £6.50-£7.50 Concession and £3.50-£4.50 Child, £20-£22 Family (cost depends on time of year you go, we went... More

Another way of sightseeing York- from the water, the captain pointed out all the landmarks and informed us of the history of the river and bridges, below decks we were able to have teas coffees and beer on the trip- worth doing.

I went with my boyfriend on this cruise and had a good time. It takes about 45 minutes and you get a ride up and down the river. It speaker was very informative and it was very interesting. The boat has a upper and lower deck, with a bar and toilets. Very good.

I went with my son on the Ouse Cruise as part of his birthday day out. It takes 45 minutes and cost £13.50 each for a dual ticket (this also got us a 24 hour ticket for the open top bus rides). The cruise was a very pleasant on a sunny day. There were two levels to the boat and... More

A lovely and good value way to spend an hour, get a different view of the city from the water with informative commentary. Well worth it.

It began to get dark towards the end of the trip so was very romantic. Would recommended anyone to go on the evening cruise. Well... More

An enjoyable hour or so, reasonably priced, a peaceful relaxing tour and very interesting. York is an amazing place and taking an hour of your time for the Yorkboat trip is well worth it.

About 40-45 minutes trip on the river. Fairly interesting although sound system was distorted. You really need to sit on the top seats of the boat to get the best views and sound. As it was uncovered the day was a bit too cold for that when we went.
