An excellent experience. The skipper Chappy was very knowledgable and informative as was the audio guide. The trip up the river and back was very enjoyable. Recommended.

Really enjoyed our river trip yesterday on the Liberty Belle. Beautiful part of the river, we were lucky with the weather - the taped information was first class with marvellous intermittent music from the good old days. Just lovely!

Cheerful and knowledgeable captain, whisks you at a gentle pace along the Great Ouse, with an interesting if somewhat odd narrator passing out tit-bits of information. Good in the rain or sunshine.

Lovely boat trip and 30 minutes was just the right duration. The captain was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and there was a recorded commentary whilst we were sailing which gave lots of information. Perfect ending to our day in Ely.
