I went on my own, as my friend pulled out last minute. I was the only solo traveller on the boat, which was fine, but there wasn't much opportunity to mingle with others. nice scenery, engaging commentary and decent lunch.
Would recommend for groups, not solo travellers.

A comfortable one hour train ride seeing the Sydney suburbs and beautiful forests before alighting at the Hawkesbury River station.
Greeted by the friendly staff before being served delicious morning tea.
Ben's cruise commentary was fresh, interesting and informative.
The scenery was gorgeous and the mail stops along the waterways involved saying Hi to the locals who live in "Paradise".
Lunch was ample and tasty and wine at a fiver was good.
A really worthwhile trip if you want to do something different just outside the beautiful city of Sydney.
Excellent value all round!

We had a wonderful day with friends on this trip up th Hawkesbury river. Couldn't have asked for more. The commentary was great. The morning tea (love those Anzac biscuits) and lunch was lovely. Friendly staff. The views were just beautiful. We met a few characters along the way on our stops. A thoroughly enjoyably day. Would recommend it. We went there by car and our friends went there by train. Both ways proved to be easy to get to. Our friends tell us the train ride was very relaxing with lovely views along the way.

We have been planning to do this trip for years "why did we wait so long" morning tea is served with home made anzac cookies absolutely delicious, the captains very infomative commentary throughtout the journey is great. A ploughmans lunch which has been feeshly prepared in the morning is served with a crusty roll, very nice meal for this type of service. The scenery is amazing, you meet locals collecting the mail at each stop. The whole day was totally enjoyable and would recommend it to everyone
