I will recommend! Cool atmosphere and enjoyable ride. Customer service too is top notch. Had the ride with my 5year old girl and Husband. We did enjoy ourselves.

Friendly staff. Nice to do as a break from walking and the hustle and bustle of city exploring. If sitting outdoors on the deck, don’t forget a windbreaker! Serves drinks and toilet available onboard (not used by any of us in my family so can’t comment further)

This was pleasant as the weather was nice and we sat outside (on the roof) for half of the cruise. There are snacks and drinks available on board and there are tables indoors. They were not being cleaned as people moved on. Behaviour of passengers on board was poor, with crowding and pushing on the stairs. Staff did not intervene.
