Had the pleasure of taking a 2-hour tour from Windsor this afternoon with friends. Upper deck was best place for the cruise which was very well commentated and included going through the lock at Boveney. Our ticket included a delicious cream tea of small sandwiches, scones, clotted cream, jams, and biscuits with tea - all freshly packed in a cardboard... More

Four friends staying in Windsor, we bought the tickets in advance with a cream tea included not quite knowing what to expect. We were all pleasantly surprised, the 2 hour river cruise was very good, a very informative commentary, comfortable seating and a sunshade that could also protect on days with worse weather. Our weather was beautiful. Passing through a... More

Had a great trip on the Lucy Fisher along the Thames near old Windsor. The boat was a replica paddle steamer but still looked the part. Crew were very friendly and vary careful helping wheelchair users on/off the boat. Refreshments were available on board if you wanted a drink or nibble. Our granddaughter who came along us 2 and enjoyed... More

Simple well run boat trips on the Thames. We took the trip after a hot day in Windsor. A chance to sit down in shade with a breeze from the water and country side. The price for the whole family was acceptable for the short trip we took. If you fancy a longer trip be sure not to wait too... More

I took two American guests (I am a qualified tour guide) on the 40-minuite boat trip yesterday. Really lovely experience, and very impressed with the recorded commentary, which was both entertaining and highly informative - and to my ears, accurate too. My guests remarked that the man's voice was very pleasant. A perfect way to spend a summer afternoon after... More

We took the 40 minute river cruise. Great views from the boat, refreshments available, we shared a jug of Pimms which was very good.. The commentary gives lots of information, this is interesting although I gather some people have said it is too much (you don't have to listen). There are quite a number of points of interests and it... More

Booked their cruise for today with cream tea included. A great day out for minimal cost. Nice boats friendly staff and the cream tea on the return leg is superb And they pay for you parking. It's a great day even if Windsor is full of tourists. Well worth the money don't miss it.

This was a treat from my mum for my 40th birthday. The boat trip was from Runnymead to Windsor. Where we were to be met and taken to the Windsor Horticultural show. Very enjoyable and comfortable ride on the boat and the staff were on hand to provide drinks from the on board bar, prices a little more than you... More
