We had a very enjoyable afternoon cruise

We had a very enjoyable afternoon cruise. The crew were pleasant and the commentary was good. There is a basic menu available on board if you are peckish which we also enjoyed. This is a good value short cruise that we would recommend if you have a couple of hours spare.

Nice day on the river

Nice day on the river. Good information and good views of the city and bridges. Food very good value. Salad sandwiches freshly made only $5 but I had the scones $5 with a Corona. Missed out on real cream which was a shame but fresh strawberries a nice touch. Staff were friendly and accommodating.

My mum and I really enjoyed seeing Brisbane from the River

My mum and I really enjoyed seeing Brisbane from the River! The information shared was excellent and we all felt the cruise was great value for our money. We had a great time, and the food looked great and plenty of drinks available. I highly recommend this tour to see Brisbane from the River.
