Oxford River Cruise

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.


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.

We shared a table with another couple which was not expected and they were reluctant to do so. This meant having to converse with them the whole time! The picnic provided was no comparison to the description on the website. We only had a small sandwich, a piece of bread, a pot of poached salmon, a pot of mackerel, a pot of Quiona salad and a piece of chocolate brownie. The 'Captain' saved the day, he was very informative!

Oxford River Cruise

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.
