Amazing experience with the most beautiful views of the city across the river on both sides. Welcoming staff who were helpful and accommodating. Easy to find and use the tickets (I would say it’s best to get on the tram or metro and walk to the spot). Best value for money

Dear 682ethanj I'm sorry for your bad experience and also to became a victim of a taxi scam - 15 000 sounds a totally irreal sum to came to our even from the airport. However, I did check your tickets and of course you have been anounced - with all other passanger - by email with ~6 hours before departure but you didn't read the email. It was a force majouere event, due to a waterway incident police had an investigation in process and we was forced to our ports. We did send notifications to all our customers and also the tickets has been cancelled by Tripadvisor imediatelly. That's mean you got plenty of notification from us and Tripadvisor by 5-6 hour before your departure time. We are sorry for the cancelled trip but was a reason out of our controll. Thank you for your understanding. Best regards, Felix, Portum Crew

You have to be on time to have a good spot. Like 30 minutes maybe even an hour before the boat leaves. We were stuck downstairs without open windows. It was really hot. But besides the heat it was an nice trip for the price.

The boat has 2 alleys on the side, you are no way stuck. Also, you are free to move or switch places any time.

It was mean. There is nothing special to mention. You should be very early if you want to get the best places on the boat. No explanation about what you see.

You pay for a non-guided cruise, therefore expecting that on a budget trip is clearly on you. Most of our customer are extremely happy with the experience, especially pointing to its price/value ratio.
