This was a great way of seeing the intustridial past of Manchester. Some great views of the city. Really peaceful could be longer tour and be better value if it was longer. Need to have it sign posted better. Would do it again

Good cruise and a view of Manchester / Salford from a different prospective. Excellent guide commentary, helpful crew. All helped along with mulled wine / mince pies for the Xmas effect.
