“Hour trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

Booked this trip as an extra with the York Dungeon , was worth the extra bit but as the weather was lovely we found upstairs open part packed out , this got extremely hot with all glass windows but worth a go

“River boat cruise well worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

We had a lovely time on the York boat doing the touristy thing, although we actually live in York!
We thoroughly enjoyed taking in the views and history as we went along. Even with a little rain it didn't put the dampners on it.

“Boat loads of fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

We had an hour to spare and went down to the Riverside to see what this was all about. £8.50 for an adult ticket for an hour on the boat. They are opentopped so we went and got a seat at the back on the top. There was a bar downstairs that serves alchol up until the last ten minutes of the tour. The captain was driving the boat, as well as telling us facts about York too. You would think sitting for an hour listening to someone talk about one place might get boring, but he included plenty of jokes and he had breaks from talking too.
Overall very enjoyable cruise along the river ouse, would reccomend it.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Went on the yorkboat dinner cruise. It was pleasant sitting on the top deck on the way to the pub with a drink, you don't get a commentary on the dinner trip, on the way back was boring, we were sat downstairs in the boat because it was cold and rainy by this time, the only seats left were ones where you couldn't see out.
The dinner itself was horrible, we were all herded in like sheep to sit in a room with no ambiance or atmosphere. I had a ham salad in which the meat was mostly fat and the salad as uninteresting as the boat trip back. You'd be better or staying I'm the city and dining at one of the many nice eateries there.
