The way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

What a way to spend a Saturday afternoon! The boat was a lovely small intimate one so it was like having your own private party. The food was delicious, quiche, sandwiches, scones and cream and strawberries. All home made served in wicker baskets which added that special something. A trip on the river with gentle music, lapping waves and even the sun. Brilliant.

It was a evening cruise with rain unfortunately . This didn't deter from the enjoyment the other customers were lovely and we bonded straight away. We had George who said it was his first week ( that cant be true ) apart from being handsome and charming - pointed out lots of things out on the river and shared stories of oxford student traditions etc. George was amazing with a family with three young children.....so much patience with them and answering their questions. George made it fun for all. My only disappointment was the picnic which wasn't really as advertised - three finger sandwiches ....a piece of quiche and 2 scones with jam and cream and a small dish of strawbs to share. Also we were given a jug of a soft drink but no glass of wine as advertised

A very pleasant 2 and a half hours on the river. The professional skipper made this an interesting trip with his knowledge and chatty presentation. I was not overly excited by the picnic lunch but this should not detract from a enjoyable experience.

A lovely peaceful afternoon on the river

A lovely peaceful afternoon on the river in a particularly quiet boat. Beautiful scenery and wonderful wildlife. The picnic provided by the Folly Restaurant was excellent - we loved the old fashioned traditional picnic baskets. The Captain was very informative but a pity he did not speak louder - maybe some audio enhancement would overcome this. The stop at The Perch Pub was great but we would have enjoyed a little more time there. Highly recommend this tour.
