We have been on other boat trips that have been more interesting, however the highlight for me was seeing a kingfisher flying passed. We sat on the top deck near the rear of the boat and struggled to hear the brief commentary that was given. The trip was a pleasant end to a day walking around Bath.

Would highly recommend this trip, never realised how beautiful & quiet it was along the river & really nice views. Very reasonable priced & would do it again!!

We picked up the boat at the Bathampton Mill. Easy to park in their car park. £5 a head if you buy a single or £9 for return. The trip to the centre of Bath takes around 45 minutes and the guide is full of interesting information about everything that you see from the history of both mills near the... More

A very pleasant way to spend an hour on the river. We met the boat under Poultney Bridge, next to the Weir. We had a fantastic journey up river and back. On the return journey from Bathampton the boat skipper gave a very interesting commentary on local river facts. Reasonably priced and well worth a visit.

We were walking along the Avon river and we reached the Pulteney Princess just on time for the 3:40 p.m. trip. There was noone else there, so it turned to be a private one-hour trip to Bathampton Mill and back for my wife and me at the very reasonable price of 8 pound per person. We had a nice chat... More

Caught the last boat taxi of the day into Bath from the Bathampton Mill pub, didn't expect too much from the trip, we were simply happy to see a different view of Bath. The boat was rather busy which was a good sign, good value at £5 each, some small snippets of info about the area, just the right amount... More

We went on a wet day and this particular boat is covered but with lots of windows so you can see most things as you go by. Commentary on the return trip was good and both captain and guide picked out the different wildlife. Good value. A pleasant trip.

The trip from Bath to Bathampton and back took an hour. It was a nice break from walking around the city on a hot day, but there wasn't much to see. We just saw people's back gardens, a few bridges, and people rowing. There was no commentary on the way there, but the tour guide did talk to us about... More

We expected a full commentary boat trip, running along the backs of interesting buildings with some history. However, there was very little commentary, which took place mainly on the way back. Views were mostly of people's gardens. Staff were friendly and efficient. It wasn't what we expected at all, though if you need a break from the hubbub, I guess... More
