Lunch River Cruise

Booked this as the description of fun commentary, lunch included sounded great. Boring and brief commentary and cheese, celery, carrot sticks and crackers!

Excellent cruise!

This midday river cruise was excellent! Cheap prices, friendly staff, great knowledge of the history of the houses around the area, the cocktails were great and the booking and arrival procedure/s were easy. Highly recommend and will be back next time :)
