The booking process was very easy and all staff were very helpful and friendly. We were allowed to put a few banners and balloons up which made the experience even more special. The crew on the...

We attended a family 60th Birthday party in December. I was worried it might be cold or choppy. Even though the weather was awful that night the trip was fantastic. The boat was warm, the food was AMAZING there was plenty of alcohol and the staff were fantastic and soooo helpful and polite. We all had a truly memorable and... More

I have used the French Brothers boats many a time to go up the river on either the 40 minute or 2 hour cruises. The staff are very informative and friendly and they have a well stocked bar on board. They also offer packages for special occasions to hire a boat for the evening. This i intend to do myself... More

We did the 40 minute boat ride. It was reasonably priced for the 3 of us and just long enough. Beautiful scenery. Staff were very friendly as they offered drinks from the bar.

Booked a group of 22 on the Autumn Colours Cruise last Sunday. Excellent helpful crew, entertaining commentary and a superb afternoon tea. The lovely autumn scenery topped a very relaxing afternoon which was sunny from start to finish. Very helpful booking staff also make French Brothers an excellent company to travel with.

My wife and middle son both have their birthdays in October. As both were "special" (ending in a zero) birthdays, I decided to push the boat out, literally and metaphorically. I booked a private party with barbecue on a French Brothers boat. We arrived at Windsor Promenade right on time and Dave and his crew were ready and waiting for... More

I can't review them as a visitor attraction but I was recently speaking at an event held on a French Brothers boat from Windsor and was very pleased with the way that crew dealt with us as a corporate event. From the moment we arrived early as the set up party, we were welcomed and every effort made to arrange... More

The boat, crew and food were all fantastic. My husband knew nothing about it until he stepped on board and everything about it was perfect. It was so easy to arrange and a very relaxed atmosphere on the day. Everyone who was there have wonderful memories to cherish. Thank you French Brothers
