Lovely staff and a great way to spend a few hours in Liverpool. Great for families or just adults. We went to see the U-boat in Birkenhead as part of our river cruise and it was fantastic! Definitely recommend!

Fabulous experience to share with my visiting South African friend, on an extremely bracing 2nd January - the Hurricane wind that had been battering the Coastline for days! We sailed graciously up and down the Mersey, great commentary covering past, present and future ventures in this beautiful part of the world, detailing the architecture along the way. Lovely warm ship, clean, spotless restroom, good hot drinks and fresh sandwiches. Staff delightful. Excellent value for money. Would highly recommend. David,Gilli and

The cruise was popular as there were a lot of people, but the boat was not too crowded. Easy access on and off the boat. Commentary was interesting and informative. I enjoyed it.

Was quite disappointed with this trip, although it gave you some commentary on the local history it wasnt as exciting as I thought it would be.

It was very nice, I loved the breeze and the flying Britain Flag in front of the Ferry. The information was just a little too basic for a tour. Buildings, Museums, the touch of humor was, ok, but a bit dry in comparison to the Ferry Boat Tour in London. We were farther from the shoreline, the view would have been more interesting closer up. It wasn't clear to me if when Visitors got off at one or the other of the 2 Ports, if people were allowed to tour these sights at leisure, or if they had to get back on the ferry boat within the 90 minute journey. There wasn't any Assistant to the Tour Guide on deck, that i could see, so questions weren't answerable.
