Just spent an hour cruising the Thames from Kris' Cruisers. Fantastic time, very welcoming staff who explained everything we needed to know. Will be looking at hiring a larger boat next time for a few more friends, and making a full day of it.

Once the rest of our party arrived our designated captain and crew (members of our party) listened to the introduction to the boat, boat safety etc. A short test drive later with the Kris Cruiser staff we were off. We have taken similar trips before so we were already versed in what to expect. The boat was very well appointed.... More

The staff were friendly and helped the kids, and as they weren't busy there were relaxed about us arriving early.

We hired a Day Boat from Kris Cruisers and motored along the River Thames. Passing through locks that had Lock Keepers made life much easier than having to manually manage them yourself and you get to meet some lovely people at the same time. The countryside is interesting with not only wildlife but also waterside properties that were spectacular -... More
