1 hour up the river, 1 hour down the river. You see everything on the way up, the return is boring.

What a stunning adventure - where can you go 110 years back in the past? We flet the sweat at the steam engine - we heard the story, We enjoyed the time, had the wine. Absolutely great stuff.

The highlight of my experience, Totally authentic. You can even go down to the engine room and not only watch, but also feel, smell the experience. You even get a lesson from Steve the fireman.
Then when you get hungry, those scones are unbeatable, served by a fraulein who loves The river with such an intense passion. Thanks guys, especially Murray the skipper, this was my greatest experience ever.

You know you're on a genuine steam boat alright, after you get off and are covered in soot. It was a really nice day out.
