What a waste of our time for the smug overly self-confident staff to tell us the only boat on a hot summer's day is old, unpleasant looking boat with no outside sitting. Just looking at the boat makes one claustrophobic. Suggestion: look up the definition...More

Fantastic short and informative cruise on boat on the Thames on the famous regatta course. Couldn't believe how clean and comfortable the boat was even having a bar and padded seats. Only one level boat with great views. Would do again.

Enjoyed this hours long cruise on the River Thames after a most enjoyable lunch at the lovely Villa Marina, Italian Restaurant, just up the road. The only reason I gave this trip 4 stars, instead of 5, is because the commentary, whilst nice and clear,...More
