We enjoyed our 40 minute boat trip. We thought the price (senior) was very reasonable. The boat was clean and comfortable. There was nothing spectacular though the view of the castle was very good though brief. It was a good way to end our day trip to Windsor and return to London.

Lovely autumnal day, so whilst in Windsor on a short break, we took one of the 40 minute French Bros. boat trips on the Thames from Windsor. The boat left promptly, and we had a 20 min 'there and back' trip in a westerly direction down the river travelling at 5 miles an hour. The commentary was a c.d. one,... More

Not the best way to cruise on the Thames around Windsor. It's okay but certainly not for the money asked: the boats need cleaning and some repainting. I know it's not cheap to look after them but they are not very well kept in my opinion. I did it twice over several months and found the trips short on both... More

We stopped for 10 minutes to visit a new wonderful statue of Queen Elizabeth celebrating her 90th birthday. Saw some lovely English houses on the waterfront. All in all a river cruise which... More

I organised a trip for 33 for 3 hours. The young staff were excellent. The cream tea and sandwiches were fresh and lovely. The boat was very clean. All in all, it couldn't have been better.

We have tried all the river trips offered by this company and have found them all to be excellent. A lovely way to see the Thames from a different prospective. The crew are very knowledgable and helpful . Our favourite trip is to Hampton Court and back which takes up .a whole day. There are drinks and food on board... More
