Perfect afternoon
, Feb 2021
Fantastic time, great staff, great food and live music. Such a nice relaxed way to see Brisbane from the river. A special mention to Jean who made our 20th wedding anniversary very special. (Jean, we were the ones on table 3, thank you)
Family time with our teens

A fantastic experience the moment we stepped aboard. The High Tea was one of many highlights. Just being on this paddle boat cursing the Brisbane River was really a treat. The friendly hospitality and service and light enticement were equally highlights for all of us as a family. We were escorted to the top deck, not sure why, but perhaps because we booked on line. All was truly a wonderful experience.

The trip was as advertised - a cruise on the Brisbane River with High Tea. We enjoyed it and recommend it. There was a tasteful live singer with computer stored backing music. The boat was stern paddlewheel driven like on the Mississippi. There were 3 decks - the uppermost deck had the high tea, and the lower two decks had other functions. The captain allowed people to be photgraphed holding the large steering wheel. The only possible issue was the Viator voucher said leaving at 1pm. This means at 1pm you see the boat departing, Really the voucher should say to be sure to board at 12:30

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

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
