One of the best gifts for my wife.

Lovely afternoon, cruising the Oxford section of the River Thames. Nick our skipper past on his wealth of his knowledge of Oxfords historic facts. The picnic was plentiful and of the highest quality. A short stop at a riverside pub finished off a perfect afternoon.

We thoroughly enjoyed this lunchtime picnic for two on the very comfortable Golden Slumbers. Captain Chris was very knowledgeable & kept us all entertained. We enjoyed the picnic lunch in a wicker hamper included finger sandwiches, individual quiches with potato salad followed by fresh strawberries, scones with cream and jam. Perfect with a leisurely cruise to enjoy the riverside scenery of Oxford.

Thoroughly enjoyable cruise with a couple of pub stops. Nick, our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and had a few little stories to go with his knowledge. The Perch Inn was a beautiful old pub with great beer too. No rush to drink it either. If you haven’t finished you can take it back on the boat with you. The picnic was excellent too. Finger sandwiches, quiche and scones to die for. Overall an excellent way to spend a few hours.
