  • Great!! - We all had such a fantastic day out. From the wonderful, helpful and friendly staff at Paignton to the quick and easy ferry crossing and the brilliant steamboat trip. Our captain on the steamboat was just amazing, so funny and full of brilliant facts and local knowledge.
  • Enjoyable - The cruise was what took the cake for me. Breathtaking views, historical sites and a fantastic guide made it all the more entertaining to sit back and take in the lovely sights! Would highly recommend! :)
  • Fantastic trip - Booked this trip beforehand due to current circumstances. Good pricing, beautiful scenery on the journey, easy to get off & get the ferry straight over. Cruise down the river was also lovely.
