It was a sunny day and I impulsively decided to hop on a boat for a quick tour of the River Dee. I just did the 30 minute tour so it was fast, but also only £7! What a pleasant adventure! I’m so glad I did it! The recorded commentary was interesting and I was able to enjoy some

I purchased this Sail via Groupon as had a friend from Scotland staying. We arrived at the ‘Lady Diana’ for the half hour sail, only to be be told ‘they only accept a printed voucher’. How they expected me to print it, in the middle of the City I don’t know, but they wouldn’t

Response from ChesterBoats, Public Relations Manager at Half-Hour City Cruise on River Dee in Chester

Good Afternoon. I was surprised to received your review, as since our Groupon offer went live last Wednesday we have accepted 29 vouchers and all 29 have been on mobile or tablet. We do not require passengers to print tickets as we recognise that this is not convenient for visitors staying way from home, as well as creating unnecessary waste. Of the 3 ticket sellers (including myself) who have worked since last Wednesday, no-one recalls turning down a Groupon voucher. If you can provide a date/sail time so we can work out who this was, please contact jenny@chesterboat.co.uk. It is disappointing that you chose not to contact us directly - as we would have been more than happy to make up for the inconvenience - but to instead leave a public 1-star review for what sounds like a relatively small mistake made by a member of the team. I hope you were still able to enjoy the cruise itself and the 40% saving with a free hot drink from the special offer.
