I spent a lovely sunny afternoon on this trip with my gorgeous wife and in-laws, feet up, catching the rays, listening to a bit of history and after a hard days wandering around York. Although I did manage to fall asleep...

This is a must in York a boat trip down the river .its 45 mins and very reasonably priced.if you have a york pass you will get a discount get on at the boatyard an take a guided boat ride along the river in both directions there is a bar on board with hot and cold drinks .sit on the top deck for great views or lower deck if its a bit cold and damp as its warmer for the little kids. tops marks for this.

We bought York Dungeons tickets and boat tickets as a deal online and im glad we did. We personally didnt really gain anything from the tour and didnt find it very informative but we are in our 20's so is probably more suited to older people. However the staff were friendly but it just wasnt for us.

Had a lovely ride up and down river, with some entertaining and informative commentary. It was nice to drop out of the busy city for an hour and relax with a drink on board a comfortable boat. Several options for cruises available or you can take out a small boat by yourself for an hour. There are two landings (Lendal Bridge and King Staiths) - we got on the boat at King Staiths and off at Lendal Bridge which was handy for the Yorkshire Museum).

Friendly staff, clean boat with good facilities and an enjoyable time.

Absolutely fabulous night aboard this boat....we sat as a party of 15 dressed for the disco theme. There were some couple and some hen parties but it didn't feel cramped. Excellent hot buffet and good bar service. Toilets were clean. Disco was fab and many requests played. We sailed for a total of 3 hours and it was a excellent time from start to finish.
