    There's plenty to see. On any given weekend you can see hen/stag parties from the north east fighting amongst themselves in the many bars that line the river.
    It's beautiful.

    Not much to see from the river, IME.
    Not quite a Loch is it

    Careful if you need to cancel, this company's customer service is shocking and are horrendous when it comes to a refund.

    York is fairly light on interesting things to do by land...

    By water..........

    Mmmmmmmaybe not.

    Heck, in Paris you can get a Batobus ticket for less than £13 per person and ride up and down the river all day getting on and off...


    York is one of those unique cities with a culture unshakeably tied to its history...

    Aristo's and Southerners visit it occasionally as a crown jewel of their singularly monarchistic dominion and opine in plummy accents over the quaintness of its antiquity and the posh tea rooms, while regarding it as a northernmost bastion of their colonisation...

    And Northerners invade to drink themselves into a coma, gorge themselves on food and try to slip the local maidens a deft caber, before leaving the place ransacked...

    "Off for a weekend in York" carries as grim a sense of foreboding as the time the city's namesake Duke uttered the statement that he "really wanted to get a feel of the youth..."

    I live in York and have regular visitors stay with me but I’ve never recommended they take a river cruise. Very little to see from the river and their time is better spent seeing any of the many other attractions York and the area has.

    Been there, seen it, done that……….

    ………. haven’t booked to do it again

    certainly wouldn’t want to pay full price for it!

    seems to be a con the phone number you book on never gets answered and the voucher runs out on day of purchase they want £20 to extend the voucher so its a con
    take no notice of former comment as soon has i posted it they answered the phone sorry for any confusion

    Went on this back in the summer. It was terrible. Nothing.to see. Guide spoke too fast and could not understand him. Really not worth it unless you just want to sit in a boat and go down the river a bit and back up again.

    Agree with the comments above about it not being the most riveting tour, although that's not their fault!

    If it's a sunny day and you've time to kill and you need a sit down and a rest then go for it. Otherwise, there's plenty of other options of things to see and do.

    I think the issue here is not the cruise, is Buyagift. Our experience with them, and with Virgin vouchers too was not the best. In fact we avoid both these companies. But the price is good. (edited)
    Agreed…You are second class customers if you purchase using buyagift or similar. Limited times on when you can use your voucher and additional charges that are not clear from the point of booking.

    I did it because I got it virtually for free, really not anything to see though I'm afraid!
    I did it for Free on a York visitors weekend (Jan/Feb) - It was only just overpriced at Free ;-)

    Loads of great other things to do in York. Replying to the commenter saying there are loads of bars along the route, that isn't true as the Ouse floods every year they end up being in the water a chunk of the time - ie The Sam Smiths pub that is always flooded and the Lowther next to it are pretty much the bars actually on the river.

    See the boats from the bridge, then walk on.
