Fantastic surprise
05 August 2020
A pleasurable experience from start to finish. The Captain and crew were very welcoming. The vessel was very clean and seating well spaced out as per Covid guidelines. The Captain gave a good briefing covering all aspects of safety and detailing how the cruise would run. Afternoon tea was served and was delicious. The crew were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The Captain gave a good talk which was both informative and humourous. I would recommend this cruise to anyone wanting a relaxing river experience.

Lovely afternoon on the river

We had a reserved table on the vessel, which was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the afternoon tea was excellent. The boat developed an electrical fault on the return trip, which meant that we were not able to have additional hot drinks. A 5 star experience otherwise!

A great afternoon out
08 October 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on a not too sunny day as it happens - but we were under cover so it didn't really matter about the weather. We had a varied selection of fresh sandwiches and cakes with our tea and there was a bar offering a nice selection of cool refreshing drinks as well. Our only criticism is that the commentary was a little indistinct at times. It was loud enough but there were a lot of hissing noises which tended to make it difficult to understand what he was saying at times. Not sure whether it was a problem with the microphone or the commentator's delivery to be honest. However, our overall experience was a good one and we would recommend it as a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

Lovely day on the boat. The only thing I can say is the staff never smiled or spoke to you, which was a bit of a let down.
