Had a lovely ride on the 40 minute trip which was just enough for the kids. Great views along the river on a beautiful bank holiday Monday afternoon. Although it was interesting hearing about the landmarks, sometimes it was nice when the guide wasn't talking and you could just take in the views in peace. Maybe it would be nice... More

This was a pleasant trip but quite short and there isn't masses to see. On talking to others, if you have the time then go for the 2 hour trip. It's not much more expensive and in hindsight probably well worth it.

I'd booked our 40 minute trip in advance of our visit, hoping it would make easier for us as we had small children and were next to the River Thames. On arriving we were told the next 40 minute trip was at 4.30pm but to come back at 4pm incase they put on an earlier boat. It was already 4pm... More

What a lovely afternoon we had cruising with French brothers from Windsor to Runnymede. The weather was just perfect. French brothers are an established company and do the job well. Recommend without a doubt. Lots of boat trips from Windsor can be had.

We took the 2 hour boat trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. Beautiful scenery and great history of that part of the Thames....only one single down side....the seats on the upper deck could use a cushion.

This trip was so much better than anticipated, really interesting commentary and friendly staff. The cream tea was very enjoyable. We are returning for the bird and wildlife cruise and also the electric boat trip.

I have done two of the trips on the Thames near Windsor and thoroughly enjoyed both, even though on one occasion it rained almost the whole cruise. The commentary is excellent - really informative and significantly enhances the pleasure of the experience. My first trip was from Runnymede to Windsor and I think this was the more interesting as it... More
