This was our second trip on Geanna - two families with 3 kids each (plenty of crew!!) and it is the amount of space on Geanna that keeps us coming back. Beautiful, large but easy to manoeuvre boat, well equipped, excellent instructions and handover. Jane was very accommodating and went out of her way to sort out our poor organisational skills! We have had good weather and rain but amazing experience every time. Getting to Cliveden House and mooring up was definitely a highlight. Getting into the locks without bumping the sides brought a sense of pride! Overall, fantastic way to see how beautiful this small island of ours is. Booking again next year once the chaos of summer holidays are over.
Large, well equipped boat. Bedrooms as expected but bathrooms quite small. Boat easy to drive and responsive. Jane and Rob very helpful in initial set up and training.
We really enjoyed our stay on the Geanna. The extra space you get with a wide beam boat makes your time onboard much more comfortable over the usual narrowboat. This is especially noticeable in the lounge and kitchen areas. The boat is well equipped with everything you need to make you feel at home.
We travelled from Caversham up to Abingdon and back on a 4 night break. We found plenty of places along the way to stop and lots of pubs to visit for lunch or evening meals. The boat is large and it is tricky to see the where the bow is when parking so take walkie-talkies and have someone at the front guiding you in. Other than that the boat is very easy to manoeuvre and of course the Thames is very wide which helps. Jane and Rob were both very nice and did a great job of settling us in and teaching us how to operate the boat. I am sure we will be back in the future for another trip on the Thames.
Spacious, fully functional, easy to handle. Beds very comfy.
Jane and Rob were a pleasure to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble.
Everything explained very clearly.
Only negative thing to say is it was a shame we couldn't go down the kennet and Avon river as the boat was too large.
Look forward to another visit and will definitely use "my river cruising" again
Geanna is a comfortable boat with everything you need provided, including towels, linen, bathroom essentials and a well equipped kitchen. It was clean, tidy and cosy. We went downstream from the pick up point and the River Thames provided lots of places to stop and moor up and stunning countryside views. It was a very enjoyable, relaxing holiday which we would do again.
Geanna is a well equipped broad beam river boat with 3 separate bedrooms plus additional areas that comfortably slept our large family of 7. Jayne provided a good overview of Geanna on our arrival along with a guided trip upstream and through our first lock. Geanna's size looks daunting at first but she is very gentle and easy to control as long as you take things steady. Her galley was well equipped although we only used it for cooked breakfasts and booked dinner at various pubs on our route.
All the family pitched in, operating locks and handling berthing, ropes, and tying her up every stop. The leisurely pace of a river trip allows you to slow down and talk or read or just watch the countryside pass by. A very relaxing 4 days.
Having been on Geanna in July for a friends 50th birthday weekend we booked the boat for a family four day cruise with our three teenagers and two dogs. The kids had not been on a cruise before and were worried and excited at the same time. From Henley we stopped overnight at Cookham and then on to Windsor and returned again via Cookham. We were lucky with the weather and the kids enjoyed helping at the locks and driving the boat under supervision. We all enjoyed the passing scenery, the relaxed pace and the friendly banter from the lockkeepers and other crews. The dogs also enjoyed the many swims and walks. The boat was comfortable and spacious and had all the amenities we needed for 4 days. A very enjoyable and different family short break.
