What people are saying about Queensferry

A great trip. Went with my 8, 10 and 13 year olds and all were kept entertained. Learnt more than we were expecting and loved the views of the bridges from the water. Even saw seals.

Myself and my husband done this on a whim as were visiting Port Edgar. It was fantastic, so much so that we plan to do it again soon but with our son in tow.

Absolutely brilliant from start to finish, very informative and professional, brilliant day, I’d definitely recommend to friends and family, thanks again!

Easy to book and find the boat, clear instructions and commentary on the boat, well stocked bar with hot drinks and wine snack, good time had by all

Absolutely fantastic. The tour guides were wonderful and the scenery was beautiful: cannot fault it!
