“Out for the day”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

This was a great experience for my grandchildren and myself. The wheel, boat trip, food and park made this an overall great day out for us all.

“Interesting experience though slightly pricey”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Via was really impressed by the engineering genius of the creators of the Falkirk wheel - if you think about it it is turkey remarkable! The tour was relatively informative & interesting. It was ok value for money though I would at slightly on the expensive side. The cafe is over priced & the tour on the boat is pretty short for the money. Still worth a visit though

“Unexpected great attraction”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Wasn't sure what to expect, but I was surprised to find it was a great attraction. Although it is expensive to do the boat trip it was an experience! Nice park area for children if the weather is nice.
