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...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...More

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...More

Good value - interesting commentary - seats lacking a bit of leg room! £4 for a one way trip... you would find it hard to get better value - it costs more that that to park the car! Well worth taking the trip!

We decided to take a trip down the river whilst staying in Bath. The trip lasts for 1 hour, from Bath to Bathampton. You are able to depart the boat in Bathampton and catch a later turn if you so desire. The trip down to...More

The 2 guys that took us on the tour were nice but the tour its self felt a bit poor. It was lacking substance. All the way to Bathampton the whole boat was silent. There was no information and no talking, we just looked in...More
