Thank you glad you enjoyed it, I don't say too much on the commentary as I think it spoils the cruise.

Went on the 12pm trip and there were about 10 passengers spread around the boat. Really relaxing 25 minutes after a morning shopping. Weather was warm, and there was a lovely breeze and the sun came out. Loads of swans, geese and ducks swimming about....More

My friend and I arrived but the boat had already pulled away but the kind skipper came back for us to board and after going under the bridge and turning by the weir we enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing trip along the Avon

Lovely trip on the river. Pleasant people that run it. As we left the riverside heading towards the weir to turn around, we saw a kingfisher sitting on a branch. Would definitely visit again.
