This was an excellent choice for us. As "oldies" we purchased a hop-on, hop-off ticket for £11 for both of us and this gave us the chance to travel the length of the Floating Harbour in the company of a very friendly young lady who was studying fine arts at the University with the Ferry Boats as a part-time job....

My daughter had a fantastic time meeting santa on the boat. Sherry and mince pies was lovely for the adults too. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would do it again.

We happened upon the ferry boats by accident, as one was pulling into the city centre stop as we got there. For a small amount of money we were able to travel around the many sites of the Bristol waterways, hopping on and off as we needed to.

We have used these several times now. Our last trip was around the river with a group of children. The kids all loved it. The staff were very friendly.
