Enjoyed the 50 minute trip along both banks. We sat midships on the starboard side. Sadly there was no speaker and we missed a lot history lesson. Will sit different position on another occasion.

Thank you for your review. We will pass on your comments about not hearing the commentary as speakers are situated at various places around the Ferry so that everybody can hear. We are glad you enjoyed the cruise despite this.
