1/5 Apr 21, 2018

Very uncomfortable seating. Bored captain. H&S obviously not taken seriously so don't bother doing the briefing. Captain initially amusing then simply offensive. Graffiti is terrible on the bridges and rubbish in the river is disturbing. Don't waste your time or money. Many other outstanding attractions.

5/5 Feb 13, 2018

A very enjoyable and informative trip. We had to do the trip in two separate stints as it was high tide at the time of our trip and therefore we couldn't do the downriver portion until a couple of hours after the upriver portion as some bridges were very low and there wasn't enough room for the boats to go under. We had different boats and different commentators for each trip. The upriver commentator was very hard to hear as he didn't speak very clearly, however the downriver commentator was excellent.
