Excellent trip last Sunday and we very much appreciated that French Bros ran the trip for such a small group as ours. Weather was perfect and the staff were attentive and polite. Although we could not travel upstream because of the fast flow it didn't matter. We enjoyed an excellent lunch and Father Christmas arrived to give us a present.... More

2 hour boat trip from Windsor to Bray. Very gentle countryside. We passed Windsor racecourse and were told that racegoers could catch the boat to the racecourse rather than brave the traffic - one for the future. The weather was not great; a bit cold. The boat was quite stable, no rolling around and had an upper and a lower... More

Have just been on a Sunday lunch cruise from Runnymede to celebrate our Golden Wedding. It was a very pleasant experience, the meal was very good and the service excellent - nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Good selection of drinks and efficient bar service. Would certainly recommend this trip for a special occasion. Jojo

We went on the last trip of the day and although there was only handful of us on the boat we were treated so well. Before we left the mooring someone came round to take drink orders and we were offered everything from coffee to alcohol. The commentary that accompanied the trip was interesting, yet not too much and we... More

If doing the tourist thing around London, you are going to spend a lot of time on your feet. Therefore, It's nice to sit for awhile and a short cruise combines sitting with seeing something other than people. I took this option, when I went out to Windsor to visit the castle and had time before catching a train back... More

We chose the 2 hour boat trip for £10.50 per head. The boat was very clean and well equipped with loos, a Bar and a great views from the top deck and the boat deck. Staff were very friendly and offer a waiter service throughout the trip. The commentary was absolutely spot on and clear wherever you sit on the... More

We booked this trip on line. It was a nice trip up the Thames and very informative. Only niggle was no food on board due to out of season. Sorry guys don't call that a well stocked bar. Food still advertised. We had traffic delays so unable to have lunch. No food needs to be publicised. Yes we could have... More

This was much, much better than expected for the price. It was a wonderful way to while away nearly 3 hours on the river, despite the changeable weather. The cream tea was delicious, the boat comfortable and the commentary well pitched - amusing but not distracting. In fact, the service was all excellent. The wildlife was out in force -... More
