Relaxing but rather disappointing.Thought would go further and see more of Oxford. Lady who took us was nice but saw same building from different angles. Maybe provide refreshments on board as part of deal. Didn't tell us initially that we could buy drinks in the bar and take on board with us. As said it was relaxing but as a sightseeing trip doesn't really do what it says on the tin hence the 3 stars.

Enjoyable cruise along the Thames with a lovely, knowledgeable skipper. Three course meal back at The Folly was delicious. We were lucky in having a perfect summer evening so could enjoy our meal outside. Despite paying for the meal & cruise in advance we still paid another £60 on the day for drinks, meal supplements & an extra tip. Worth it though. Food was amazing.

This was a trip selected with a voucher I was given over 2 years ago, and have not been able to take until now, due to health reasons, and the pandemic restrictions. Oxford River Cruises were absolutely brilliant and allowed us to postpone and rebook this on four occasions, with no extra cost necessary. The trip itself lasted two and a half hours, and was so relaxing and informative, without being over the top with uninteresting facts. Our helmsman Chris was good fun, knowledgeable, interesting and was sensitive to everyone’s needs on the boat…he made our trip so enjoyable in the virtually silent electric-powered boat, and is a real asset to the company.
I would thoroughly recommend one of their boat trips, and although we didn’t have a picnic included in our particular voucher, the others on the boat did, and the refreshments looked amazing and were delicious according to the other guests…I’ll remember to book this on our next trip, as we’d love to do this again! If you visit Oxford, which is a wonderfully interesting city, you must have a trip with Oxford River Cruises…all the staff being so friendly and helpful, the boat was spotless, and we couldn’t fault this trip in any way…enjoy!

The cruise was brilliant! I learnt a lot and we had a lot of fun. So pleased we booked this for our weekend in Oxford. Our guide was brilliant, really knowledgeable and funny. I booked the 50 min one but would probably book the longer one now as I didn’t want it to end! Great fun!

We hired a small private boat for 9 to celebrate my daughters 21st birthday. We had an absolutely lovely cruise along the river. The boat was really comfortable and clean. George our driver and guide was super friendly and told us lots of little facts along the way.
