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

A great cruise on a hot July afternoon. This perfectly complements the bus tours which cover different attractions. The guide was friendly and entertaining and worked hard to ensure all were safe, happy and served with food and hot/cold beverages. The Holiday Inn is the perfect venue for drinks if just missed a boat and waiting for the next cruise.

Had a great fun cruise with our guide Romeo. The guy has to gift of the gab and kept a full boat laughing and entertained, as well as informed for the duration of our cruise. Highly recommended if you want to see such highlights as the Stratford public sewerage disposal, or the fenced island.

Lovely setting, great crew and value for money. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in the Stratford upon Avon area. The Holiday Inn hotel where the boat sails from is also a great place for drinks afterwards.

My friends and family surprised me on my hen weekend with a private cruise during the Festival for the fireworks. From the point we were welcomed on board we were treated like VIPs with the crew looking after us all the way - nothing was too much effort and they even took photos throughout the evening, so I have those...
