Splendid tour

Joe was an excellent tour guide, providing lots of information about Iffley and all the sites, a few laughs and an insight into boat life along the Thames. You'll get to take in a few sites like the rowing clubs and lots of geese 🦆🦆 me and my partner has a great time. It's worth the £16 a head and they even brought the drinks we ordered to the boat for us.

Boat trip was very good and the guide was very good too. We found it quite difficult to see your very small sign to say where you were though. The seating area to wait from could do with a revamp maybe?

My mother came to visit from Germany and she always wants to visit Oxford! We has done various walking tours previously so I was looking for something different. The tour was absolutely fantastic, great guide who shared local knowledge, always up for a joke. A wonderful, tranquil experience, a real alternative to the walking tours .

We were a group of 10 friends enjoying a reunion in Oxford 28th April. We all thoroughly enjoyed our trip up the river guided by Evie. She pointed out all the relevant sites and she was also quite entertaining. We would definitely recommend this trip as a bit different. As a tip try to suss out the pick up point in plenty of time. The Folly restaurant looks very smart it is a pity we did not have time to eat there but we did have a coffee.

Mark the skipper was fun, friendly and very knowledgeable. The boat was comfortable with blankets if we were cold and the option to take drinks on board. The Folly Restaurant (where you set off) is a beautiful place, making the whole experience fantastic.
