This is a great experience but if you are on the lower deck you don’t see much and there is no way to specify upper or lower deck when booking. Tables are allocated so no mad rush to board , you sit where they tell you. However the afternoon tea is excellent quality, sandwiches delicious , lovely selection of sweet treats ,service with a smile all run like a well oiled machine and Captain Mike is highly amusing, we would definitely do it again.

The crew were very welcoming and friendly, the space was open and fantastic views all around of the river sights. Our afternoon tea was lovely and plenty of it and they provided vegetarian option too. The service was really good and very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would love to do this again soon.

A most enjoyable cruise to end our day visiting York. Plenty of good food and tea/coffee/juices and an informative and comedic captain to tell us what we were looking at. A great way to unwind after all the walking and before a longish drive back to our holiday base

The river trip was very pleasing with views of the countryside once we left the city. The afternoon tea was tasty and there was plenty of time to enjoy it. The Captain was very knowledgeable with good commentary and also tea room music to give a good atmosphere.
