Owner description: The best 45 minute sightseeing cruise in Stratford upon Avon!! We offer excellent sightseeing cruises and we're the only company to have a boat with a licensed bar, wonderful cream teas and a Live commentary by our own on-board guides. Our guides share the history - and the amusing unknown history - of Stratford & Shakespeare during your cruise. We're a family business that operates 365 days a year, river conditions permitting. We can also cater for private parties - birthdays, hen parties, anniversaries, Christmas, schools & coach groups - we do just about everything! Our cruises are popular with local residents and tourists alike.

Really enjoyed the boat trip, the guide was very funny and entertaining, the hour flew by, also had a pot of tea, the antics of the rowers on the river also were mentioned in the commentary. well worth the money,recommended.

Actually, although the river running through Stratford-upon-Avon is very picturesque, there is not a huge about to see from the river. The theatre, the church and some lovely homes……..however it was our tour guide Romeo that made this 45 minute cruise an absolute joy!! A comic genius, Romeo entertained the whole boatload of tourists with his humour, anecdotes and interesting historical facts! There are many river boat cruises on offer and we were so pleased we chose this one!! Great value and good fun!!

A great cruise on a hot July afternoon. This perfectly complements the bus tours which cover different attractions. The guide was friendly and entertaining and worked hard to ensure all were safe, happy and served with food and hot/cold beverages. The Holiday Inn is the perfect venue for drinks if just missed a boat and waiting for the next cruise.

Had a great fun cruise with our guide Romeo. The guy has to gift of the gab and kept a full boat laughing and entertained, as well as informed for the duration of our cruise.

Highly recommended if you want to see such highlights as the Stratford public sewerage disposal, or the fenced island.
