We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise, which was part of my birthday celebrations - it was informative and friendly, with an excellent commentary.

This was a gift for our anniversary. The folly restaurant is the starting point for this trip and although we didn't dine here during our stay I wish we had it looked stunning there and the white rioja we purchased for the cruise was gorgeous....More

Fantastic afternoon. The picnic was delicious and our captain was very very knowledgeable and informative. Good set up all around. Nice bar / bistro and wine is taken chilled on the boat for you. A must if you're in or around Oxford
