  • Very enjoyable tour, lots of great photo opportunities, yummy food and enjoyed the DJ.

  • The boat ride was very nostalgic. The high tea was OK but the sandwiches were dry and the amount of food was more like a booking for 2 not 3. I was gobsmacked when I was told that because I had champagne I HAD MAYBE A QUARTER OF A GLASS AS A TOAST That I couldn't have any orange juice,Really,for the price we paid quite unreasonable.My sister in law is coming to Brisbane soon and wants to do a high tea but I will find something a bit nicer, go for the boat ride not the food.

  • High Tea without the Tea. We had a very enjoyable 2 hour cruise along the beautiful Brisbane River. Unfortunately the service was disappointing, we had to go and get our drinks ourselves along with other people on this cruise and we where not offered tea or coffee after our food. It was a good experience and would recommend doing the cruise but don't count on great service

  • The staff were friendly and the atmosphere was amazing. Delicious food and good value for money.

  • Excellent tea but no commentary which i had been led to believe would happen. Trip somewhat spoiled by large and very noisy hen party so was difficult to hear ourselves at the table. If I'd known about the hen party which of course they were entitled to I would have thought twice about going. Will not do it again
