Nice way to spend 45 mins, very relaxing up on the top deck but can be a bit chilly. The comentery is pretty intresting with major sights being pointed out. Did this as a combined ticket which made it better value for money.

A lovely, peaceful and relaxing boat ride on the River Prince along the River Ouse. Beautiful scenery and very informative commentary. A lovely way to start a Sunday morning.

But because it was almost the longest day it was light. Very knowledgable guides - smooth ride, and very reasonably priced using the York pass. Brilliant way to spend a couple of hours learning about York and its surrounding areas .... And I saw a kingfisher!

We decided to take this river cruise to break-up the day of the hustle in and around the busy streets of York.....It is very relaxing and an interesting 45 minutes commentary from the captain giving information about local history and sights... You can sit up on deck or inside, there are toilet facilities and refreshments avalible....There is also ample room for push chairs/wheelchairs.

It is well worth it.......I would recommend that you pay a little extra and get the Boat and bus tour ticket which also allows you to hop on board the tour bus which takes you around the sights of york......giving you commentary in several languages very interesting history of York.....Once you board the bus your ticket is valid for 24 hours ( great if your staying in the city).......You can get off the bus close the the main attractions of the city, then hop back on later.....it's great

After searching high and low for something a bit different for my daughters 18th birthday family celebration we booked the River King for 3 hours last Saturday evening. We didn't know quite what to expect and our party guests ranged in age from 18 to 70 years old, so we were a little anxious as to how everything would go. We needn't have worried! The staff were friendly, polite and very efficient without intruding on the party. The boat itself was very clean with an open air deck on top and a warm comfortable inner lower deck. We took our own downloaded music which was played at whatever volume we asked for, and the lovely scenery all along the river was just wonderful and appreciated by everyone. We had ordered the Admirals Buffet and this was really quite exceptional in quality and quantity - we were all extremely impressed. We were absolutely delighted with our evening - great food, great music, excellent staff, comfortable seating and a constantly changing view. What more could we ask? Thank you YorkBoat!
