Nice little boat trip, a bit pricey for the duration of whole trip. Overall ok, like the local information about some spots.

A wonderfully relaxing experience, 'Living in the moment',with a most interesting commentary. It was a beautiful sunny day, and a peaceful trip. The crew were friendly and experienced. We would now like to take a longer trip next year, and thoroughly recommend the cruise.

A nice boat trip along the River Thames. There is a bar onboard and table waited service. We sat on the lower deck which was more comfortable and warmer than the lower deck. The windows open so you can peer out at water level and...More
