Great activity with the kids. A short trip up the river and back. Just enough to see some of the wildlife (we saw a heron and a Peregrine falcon) and the famous Pulteney bridge and weir. A lovely perspective of the city from the river. The guide was very good with some interesting facts which kept the kids engaged. It is a small boat which made it feel quite special, we were the only people downstairs so it felt like a private tour!
We booked for a group of 5 and shared the boat with just another couple because of covid but meant it almost felt like we had our own private boat. The smaller group sits up top so best that in mind if you want to be outside/inside. The tour guides were super lovely and knowledgeable. You get amazing views of the bridge and surrounding architecture- hugely recommend the experience!
The boat ride was short but informative. It was very warm with the fire and the crew ensured good social distancing and other measures due to COVID-19. The crew were polite and helpful. They were also clearly very knowledgeable about the local area.
Staff really friendly, really informative. Made to feel comfortable and even though it is a short journey, you do see quite a lot and it's great to be able to see the Weir from the boat instead of from afar or on a bridge.
The Boat Ride was so relaxing & to hear about the history of bath by the captain who was driving the boat Was very interesting. Bath is a very beautiful place.
