Brilliant, lovely trip down the Thames river very pleasent riverboat experience the captain/guide was a very good host. Lovely tea, sandwiches, scones and cakes. I can honesty say that I Can't see why anyone would complain, sure they have no toilets on their riverboats. it is a riverboat for sight seeing not a cruise liner. Excellent value for money especially if the weather is on your side. If not the boats have clear rubber/plastic coverings that cover the all of the seating areas
What could be nicer than a river cruise from central Oxford? The boat was covered which was useful as it wasn't the best day. The cruise itself was great fun, informative and over much too quickly. Good for people like me who have lived in Oxfordshire for years and for visitors too.
These guys could not have been better, absolutely stellar experience. Especially the nice lady who led our tour, give her a raise! :)
Beautiful peaceful tour of the river. Skipper lovely young lady full of interesting facts.
I go there to rebook 4 tickets, they make me call a telephone number and then they ask 7 pounds per 12 pound ticket to be rebooked. Was planning to have a nice family trip with this company, but now will use another, there's one just across the street. Appalling, won't be having my business again.
