A great afternoon out in the Baby Klip 4 seater boat. The staff were great and and an easy quick pickup process. We got up to Cromarsh Gifford Lock and back on out 4 hour hire, lovely stretch of the river, we probably could have gone a bit further upstream but instead moored up to eat our picnic lunch. Good level of weather protection on the Klip, kept a few showers at at bay and the wind off us. The Waterside Cafe is right next door so perfect for a meal or coffee before and/or after. We'll be back to another hire come the spring.

We booked our morning on the boat in advance and when the much anticipated day arrived, the weather was atrocious! The gentleman who helped us on our arrival went above and beyond to help us enjoy the river despite the weather. He put all of the sides down on the boat and provided cozy blankets and waited whilst we collected warm coffees and hot chocolates from the adjoining restaurant. We cut the outing short, but was still good fun and we will definitely return in the near future

Hired a baby Klip at Benson for 2 hours. The boat was spotless. Very easy to use. Had an amazing trip up the Thames. Will definitely use AVboats again. Big shout out to James who showed us around and was really friendly and helpful

Four adults and three children, 5, 3 and 7 months. We could have all got into a 6 seater but the 10 seater was better for the kids to move around. Staff were prompt and attentive. Equipment very good and clean. All in all it was a fun time for the two mobile children and relaxing for the grown ups. The bonus was the riverside pub/cafe/restaurant that was great value and very relaxing.
