Such a good price for a 40 minute boat trip. Good pre-recorded commentary telling you about what you can see.... although there was a loud group on our boat so struggled to hear it at times. Beautiful views of the castle from a distance but sadly not up close

We would have gone on the longer trip from Windsor, but only had time for the 40 minute one. Still, it was lovely, and I appreciated the commentary, and was able to see a bit of Eaton this way, too. Boys were running cross country by the river. Also enjoyed the narrow boats (we took a narrow boat vacation a few years ago on the Llangollen). The view of Windsor Castle from the river is second to none. Perhaps we can take the longer ride another time.

Nice little boat trip, a bit pricey for the duration of whole trip. Overall ok, like the local information about some spots.

I would like to pass on our sincere thanks and appreciation to the staff on our boat trip today, Monday 13th August 2018, from Runnymede to Hampton Court.
Your staff were amazing and were very helpful, kind and professional.

Max was incredibly hard working, professional and attentive. He was a real asset today and he really helped with my elderly 92year old mother in answering my questions.
Also to the pilot / skipper of the boat whom I asked about my mother staying on the boat over lunchtime as she is unable to walk even short distances comfortably, was extremely helpful and courteous and I really think you should be very proud of these two exceptional guys.

I will not hesitate, for even a moment, to recommend your boating pleasure cruises to my friends, family and other acquaintances.

Thank you again for a very professional helpful service.
