Price for 2 participants

This fabulous Oxford Experience River Cruise for Two People is the perfect way to explore Oxford's historic beauty with a friend or family member - but it also makes a wonderfully special and unique experience gift for anyone with a spirit of adventure!

Whether you have never been to Oxford before and want to admire its famous sights or you are a local and just want to gain a new perspective on this fascinating city, this river cruise for two people can be enjoyed by just about anyone. This is a fantastic opportunity to climb aboard an elegant Edwardian style river boat and gently cruise down the tranquil River Thames, drifting along the university regatta course towards the charming Iffley village. This is one of the most vibrant and exciting stretches of the Thames; known locally as The Isis, you will pass by the ancient Folly Bridge, Christchurch College and Meadows and the university rowing houses. You will experience a real taste of Oxford river life from the comfort of an electrically propelled boat, ensuring an almost silent running as your cares float away down the river! Perfect for those people with limited time in Oxford, this 50 minute tour will show you the most famous landmarks that this beautiful city has to offer. There can be no better way to spend an hour than to enjoy the wonderful peace and quiet that a river cruise offers you - and the sensational views along the way are just an added bonus!

So, whether you want to enjoy this trip yourself as you explore all that Oxford has to offer, or would rather treat a lucky friend to an experience gift that they will never forget, nothing about this superb river cruise will disappoint. Absolutely fantastic...

The Oxford Experience River Cruise for Two

As previous reviewer just the two of us on board with a very nice guide who gave us loads of snippets of history on a calm trip. Shame there weren't more people as we thought he felt he had to keep talking which was good tour guiding but we felt we had to keep listening! Super reception despite The Folly base getting ready for a wedding cruise. We followed the trip with an absolutely fabulous lunch in The Folly.

The Oxford Experience River Cruise for Two

We had an excellent lunch in the restaurant and we also very much enjoyed our trip on the Thames, which was relaxed and informative. All staff on the day were very helpful. I would rate the experience as a 5 but for the difficulty we experienced in booking the cruise with an Experience Days voucher, which recommended telephoning to book. The telephone was never answered, despite several attempts.

The Oxford Experience River Cruise for Two in Southend on Sea

We had a great time on the boat with just the 2 of us and the "captain" who entertained us with a remarkable knowledge of Oxford and the River Thames and their history. Very interesting and the views along the way.We enjoyed it even though it was raining for most of the trip.
