Happy sailors

Forth Boat Tours has more than 660 TripAdvisor reviews and 97% of them rank the tours as excellent or very good. The following are excerpts from longer reviews:

‘Enjoyable trip. We have been on this trip a few times and have enjoyed every one… and for the first time I was able to make use of the bar as I was not driving. Even for people familiar with the area, the boat trip gives passengers a good way to see the many landmarks, the bridges, the seals and the other wildlife from a new perspective. There are some great photo opportunities; all made the more engaging by the running commentary giving some interesting facts and stories along the way…’

‘Excellent way to photograph the three bridges…A great day out for the family. Kids love it.’
