By no means the highlight of our Liverpool visit but it was calm and peaceful and may have been better taken in warmer weather. The commentary on the boat was also difficult to hear over the sound of the ferry's engines.

As much as I enjoyed it you couldn’t hear what the speakers were saying I have done similar in London and was able to hear what the guide was saying, this is a prerecorded guide which don’t really make it as entertaining, could create a job for someone and give you a live guide one which you can hear

Good way to see Liverpool from the other side, and learn some history of Liverpool that goes beyond the music. They don't over-crowd it, and there's plenty of indoor seats if you don't want to brave the elements. Worth a trip for any Liverpool tourists!

The ferry was a great experience, I learnt a lot about Liverpool‘s history and the people. I would come again for the same experience

Fab boat trip, up and down the Mersey, loudspeaker gives information about the buildings you see and the history of the river. We went on a beautiful sunny November day, 10am trip, the first off the day so maybe about 15 people on board. We had a coffee from the cafe and sat enjoying the sights. Was a lovely hour. Highly recommended.
