Wonderful trip even with the rain and coach of 53 passengers arriving late. Our trip was spoilt because the coach arrived late missing the departure time and not allowing us much time when arriving at Windsor. At least the sun shone on the return journey...More

Lovely 40 min boat trip on Thames with a tour guide recording playing overhead. Plenty of seating and bar available on board. Good weather and calm waters adding to the experience.

Enjoyable experience. Would have been better if there was a person giving the information not a recording.

We took our elderly disabled father on the trip today in a wheel chair and the staff were brilliant. They were most accommodating and it really made my dads day. I cant thank them enough; they were first class.

Excellent 2hour trip with interesting, informative and often humorous comentary from Dave. It was pretty overcast but we still enjoyed the views from the top deck. Drinks available and some seats more comfortable than others but they were ok. Good value for money.

To be eligible for a senior ticket you must have a senior citizen bus pass. Regarding the Maidenhead service, we would advise you book online at the earliest opportunity to avoid disappointment.
