A nice relaxing way to see the town in a different way, the commentary was very good, as were the on board snacks, and seating.

A lovely cruise on the river Severn drinking a glass of wine. A commentary by the Captain was very informative and we were very well catered for. Well worth a trip. Good value.

It's true that when you live close to such lovely attractions you never seem to take time to appreciate them, but we are so glad we did.

We went with a group of friends on this short river trip. About 30 of us went meeting on the quayside. We were met by a very personable young man.

A lovely way to spend 45 mins of a summer afternoon floating gently down the Severn / Sabrina River in Shrewsbury with a glass of wine or pot of tea. Interesting but not obtrusive commentary of the historic buildings passed on the way back. Good value for £s.

My stepdaughter got married last month and she arranged for her guests to be transported to the reception on the Sabrina! Great running commentary and excellent on board bar service! The whole experience is highly recommended!

We were visiting Shrewsbury as friends originate from there and we were doing all the touristy things, including the "River Cruise" A very nice surprise too with lots of interesting facts and information about the town, great service and a massive pot of tea to boot! Worth the money on a pleasant day.
