A little commentary with regards to surroundings would be helpful after all we are visitors and don’t have local knowledge The staff couldn’t have looked more bored as though they hated every minute of their job

Ok, so not sure what I was expecting after my boat tour around New York Harbour with Kathleen Turner’s recorded commentary. But this was t really a “ Tour” as such. In my view, a tour is when you get given information about what you are looking at or what is coming up next. There is plenty of history here that I basically had to research myself afterwards by looking at google maps! I think that a commentary would be a great addition to this service. Without it, it’s just a quiet 50 minute boat ride. £11.50 is steep without the commentary Stunning views.

Very disappointing. The driver said take care with the slippy steps. That was it! No friendly attitude at all. No commentary either by the driver and his silent mate, or one over the speakers. The trip is obviously the same day after day so a commentary could be aired easily. Surely there must be amazing history and facts about the lake, how deep, how long, what fish, what interesting folk in the massive houses set back from the shore. I think the company has missed a real chance to employ some knowledgeable people to make this a fun, interesting excursion. I will definitely not recommend this to anyone. A waste of time and money.

The weather was a little grey on top of cat bells but the ride across the lake was amazing, with beautiful views and friendly staff. The boats ran frequently enough and added to the fun of the climb!

Hired a powered boat here for an hour which was just enough time to do a circuit around Derwent Water with no alighting. Loved it! Only had to wait 20 mins for a boat, so not bad at all. If you are considering paying for multiple tickets for the boat ride don’t bother , self hire a boat instead.
