“River trips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

A river trip is good value as it was as a Roman port that Chester became a city of renown.
The chain footbridge swings as you walk across!
The river was frozen over in 1963.

“Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

The river dee is a beautiful river but is full of waste and rubbish the community and tourists needs to take better care of this lovely piece of nature. It gets very busy in the summer with the rowing club and it us lovely to watch.

“River Dee in Chester”

Nice walks along the river banks with a wide and fast flowing wear.It would have had an excellent review if the pleasure boats been operating. but maybe I am being unreasonable considering it was new year.

“Worth doing once.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Good length of visit, pleasant staff and audio guide during the cruise, had small children with us and they got bored quite quickly, glad I have learnt a little more about the river but nicer facilities and little moe 'class' on the boat would have created a nicer experience.
