After breakfast at our Hotel, we went for a walk before driving home. The sun was shining and we had time so we took the 40 min trip, so glad we did. It was so relaxing on the river, and the audio guide was very informative. Cant wait to try the 2hr trip in the summer.

On the 20th December I took a party of friends for a Christmas Party & Dinner on board one of French Brothers Boats. We ravelled up and down the Thames from Runnymede for 4 hours. Having been meeting up with friends to celebrate Christmas and our friendship, this evening turned our to be the best party for many years. The... More

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
