A pleasant gentle trip along part of the river through an outer area of Oxford centre (i.e. don't expect to see many colleges or much of Oxford itself as the river doesn't go past those sights). It's mainly about the rowing clubs and their buildings which are quite interesting, but not sure that it's worth £16. We enjoyed it, but felt it was over-priced for what we got.

It is exactly as it says. A gentle trip past the boat houses and back. Interesting commentary. Very pleasant and its nice to see things from a different vantage point.

Just an all-round lovely thing to do. It was a present, bought for me during first lockdown, which the company honoured - a big thank you for that !!

This cruise was excellent - you explore such a beautiful part of Oxford and the guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic. Would highly recommend for anyone visiting Oxford!

Joe the driver was excellent. Not much to see. Was disappointed. Poor Joe did his best. Will NOT do again.
