Reviews

This delightful experience provides a memorable day out for two adults. Take a scenic riverboat cruise on the Golden Slumber, Bacchanalia or Serafina II through Oxford on one of the busiest and most colourful stretches of the Thames. Head downstream towards Iffley village, passing the ancient Folly Bridge, Christchurch College, Meadows and the university rowing houses. This stretch (locally known as The Isis) is a particularly busy stretch of the river with rowing eights, punts, university boats and large pleasure cruisers, all coming together in a lively display of all that the river has to offer.

Your experience will begin with a warm welcome aboard the vessel where you will be greeted by your skipper who will provide you with a safety briefing before departure. Throughout your scenic cruise you will receive an informal commentary as you pass by the sights of Oxford on this fascinating stretch of river.

Great Experience

I received this as a gift from parents and the experience we had while on the river cruise was amazing. the time of year we went was when the colleges were racing down the thames so we saw the races as well as the cruise.

Messing about on the river

I booked the day for our wedding anniversary. It was delightful. Our skipper was friendly and knowledgeable about the river and local history etc. Lovely hour, beautiful scenery, most pleasant time.

Lovely Oxford River Cruise

This was a birthday gift. We picked a great weekend to do it as the weather on the Sunday was great. Both the reception staff and the boat skipper /guide were very friendly. There was just the right of information given on the trip, giving time to just appreciate the scenery along the bank of the Thames. Highly recommended.

Relaxing afternoon

Received a voucher as a birthday present and was a bit surprised that the 'activity' was 200 miles away. Booked my cruise at very short notice to coincide with a short trip to the Cotswolds, parked in the park and ride and headed for Oxford. Pleasant half hour spent in the bar/restaurant before climbing aboard the electrically powered hence quiet motor launch. Skipper was very thoughtful, provided knee blankets to ward off the cold before setting off for a leisurely amble along the river pointing out historic elements, buildings and stories about this short stretch of the river. A fascinating, interesting and relaxing afternoon.

Good little trip!

We were given an Activity voucher for a Christmas present and picked the river trip. We had to travel to Oxford for the trip but it was worth it - a pleasant slow sail down the river taking in the scenery.

Oh dear

What an overpriced shocking waste of money. I have already done one review for you. Paid you £35 and when we got there the actual cost was £24. The boat used was very poor and with it raining I got quite wet. The date of the "cruise" was June 8th and I had to wrap myself up in a smelly old blanket which was provided. There was really nothing to see on our trip and I felt really bad because it was a present I bought my hubby for Christmas. I don't think I would use your company again.
