This cruise was included in the bus and boat ticket that cost 18 quid. We were jammed into the boat like sardines with very little room for legs. Was expecting a commentary, but there was nothing - there wasn't anything of particular interest to look at along the way, apart from ducks and swans. A pretty uninteresting way to spend... More

It's rather a shame if a previous reviewer didn't understand his sense of humour , which was all very lighthearted good fun , with no harm intended whatsoever . Our refreshments... More

Generally a worthwhile trip. The crew were reasonably informative with some humour thrown in. Maybe could have lasted a little longer as it seemed over in a flash but worth doing.

Great value for money, cream tea was very enjoyable, the scenery stunning, the tour guide, Andrew was both informative and humorous, a very pleasant way to spend an hour and see some historic sights from the river, the boat was both clean and comfortable and enclosed for the days when the weather is not quite so nice but with windows...

Actually, although the river running through Stratford-upon-Avon is very picturesque, there is not a huge about to see from the river. The theatre, the church and some lovely homes……..however it was our tour guide Romeo that made this 45 minute cruise an absolute joy!! A comic genius, Romeo entertained the whole boatload of tourists with his humour, anecdotes and interesting... More
