    This was a fantastic value for money activity suitable for all age groups. We were fortunate to have chosen a calm day with excellent visibility. The duration of the trip, about 1.5 hours, was perfect and the combination of a recorded audio input together with input from the crew was ideal.

    It was great to cruise under the three famous bridges of Edinburgh, and learn about their history. It was lovely to see Incholm Island, and to see South Queensferry. I could not make it to the 11am sailing, so I was able to change it to the afternoon, 1pm sailing, so I didn't miss my experience. The lady on the phone was very helpful.

    Booked just an hour before the trip for myself and my partner. We were able to sit right at the back and able to see and hear everything. The only dissapointing thing about the trip was a large family who were scattered amongst the boat, not listening to the guide at all and spoiling the view for a number of people who equally paid the same amount as them. Not putting face coverings on when asked to do so a number of times by the guide. In my opinion if they are not listening to the guide and spoiling everyones experience they should be placed in a section of the boat together for the remainder of the trip.
