We had 76 pensioners on the boat with room for everyone to sit upstairs The commentary was very entertaining and drinks were brought to you on request at reasonable prices. We had a two hour cruise passing Windsor racecourse and a number of lovely houses and very posh hotels. We saw a red kite and kingfishers and lots of swans... More

This is a "must do" at a great price - I think it was about £6.50 ish. Leaving at 10:30 hours on Saturday morning we set off on this 45 minute boat trip up the Thames. The tickets could be bought from the ticket office right next to the boat - no worries about getting lost or confused .... it... More

Book this trip. I had tickets booked with the afternoon tea + Pimms option and two of our party were late and missed the boat. The team were just super, let us go on the 40min ride to catch the first one, met us at the lock and helped us onto the 2hr boat! Such lovely people with great customer... More

My family and I enjoyed a perfect trip with the French Brothers team on board the Lucy Fisher.My husband is in a wheelchair and the staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating to our needs. The ground leading up to the boat is quite steep and a bit rough and the staff helped us all the way.They provided... More

Two days ago my friend and I treated ourselves to a 2 hour round trip from Windsor and decided to order a cream tea hamper for both of us. We had to book in advance which was no problem. We embarked on to the spacious boat Windsor Majesty and enjoyed the commentary of the history and information of the areas... More

I booked the Streatley Steam boat for my mother's 90th birthday. A 4 hour afternoon trip from Runnymead to Windsor and back. Our group of 19 consisted mostly of family. The boat was probably a little too big for that number but equally it meant there was plenty of room. I booked it for afternoon tea. The food was excellent... More

We booked this trip online the day before, which was easy to do. We thoroughly enjoyed it, it was great value for money and the staff were very friendly. The round trip started at 9.15am and finished at 6.15pm, I highly recommend it. There is free parking in the National Trust car park with a ticket from the boat crew... More

We took the 2 hour cruise from Windsor, we booked online which worked out slightly cheaper. The boat can get full very quickly so get there early to board and grab a seat on the top deck. There are clear roll down plastic windows if it gets too chilly a crew member will lower them for you. A lovely and... More

We took the 40 minute trip and found it quite nice. (We did not take the the 2 hour trip, but I am under the impression that most of the extra time is spent going up and down the lock system and that boat does not really travel much further up the river than the 40 minute trip.) The boats... More
