I thought that the slightly difficult time requirements for the 3 parts  were pulled together very well to give a seamless entertaining and  educational day which my wife, Pauline and I thoroughly enjoyed. The guide was particularly good, combining interesting information about  the city sights with amusing anecdotes.  A special 'thank you' is owed  to the driver who got us back safely through the busy Sunday evening  motorway traffic.  John M

Many thanks to the Team for a very enjoyable trip yesterday.   The SeaCity Museum exhibitions were very interesting and I now know a  lot more about the sinking of the Titanic!  I was so impressed with the  trip on the SS Shieldhall, we were so lucky with the weather and the  crew and volunteers on board really looked after us.  The visit to view  the engine room and massive boilers was so informative and made  one  aware of how much the engineers had achieved in getting the engines in  working order when the ship was renovated.  Pam B

A most enjoyable day. Very interesting and informative itinerary. I learnt a lot from the Titanic Museum and the Shieldhall trip was superb. Getting into the engine room when in action (keep your hands behind your back!) as well as the bridge was a rare opportunity. And the weather was absolutely perfect. Thanks to Richard for the research and organisation and Margaret for her hands-on help. Pat L also asked me to echo her thanks for the good work arranging and running the trip.  Andrew B
