Had a fun ride yesterday on the Seaforce for my husband's birthday. The 20 minute ride in the lovely sunshine showed Glasgow at its best. Would do it again.

Great trip down the Clyde, best way to see all the sights, loads of fun, suitable for all ages. Took 6 teenage boys, and they really enjoyed it. Just booked again for my other son's birthday. Great value!
