We did the 2hr trip from Windsor and it was very good. The 2 men crew were very pleasant and the narrator covered all parts of the trip.

There were no staff managing the que, even though had missed two trips by the 3rd we managed to be by the front after almost an hour but then groups of people just started que from the opposite end and then ask hell broke loss I was surprised...

Did the short 40 minute cruise (wife's recommendation) and enjoyed it so much went back the following day and did the whole two hour cruie through the lock. Well worth the effort (sitting with a beer) and the best way to see and learn about Windsor and the Thames. Can be a bit airy upstairs in April however the lounge... More

On a sunny day, this little trip is a must! (We took the 40 minutes trip). Considering this boat trip is one of the a most touristic venue, I felt that French Brothers priced their tour most fairly (£6.20 per adult online booking). Their refreshments were also no more expensive than what you would pay in any pub or café.... More

Our 7 year old greatly enjoyed this trip, spotting cormorants and lots swans. The trip is approx 40mins. A good way to find out more about the area.

We decided to take a river cruise as the queue to get into Windsor castle was too long.french brothers seemed to be a well set up and organised company. We took the two hour trip and the commentary was informative and interesting. It was a very cold day the day we travelled but the boat was heated and it was... More

Went on the 2pm cruise on 7th March with husband, son, a couple of friends and their two children. Pleasant cruise and very relaxing. Bar onboard which was nice as we could have a nice chilled glass of wine as we meandered along. Can't fault the cruise - only slight niggle was that when we arrived all the upper deck... More
