What people are saying about Cheshire

Excelkent trip. We took our 2 year old granddaughter on the cruise and she loved it, having never been on a boat. It is a lovely experience and you see Chester from a differnt perspective. Essy to book on line but you can turn up on the day. Staff very helpful, pleasant and professional. Safety being their main concern. Will definately reccomend and will do thevtrip again at some point.

Excellent views of the river and scenery, commentary very informative, 30 minutes just wasn’t long enough
