A lovely peaceful afternoon on the river in a particularly quiet boat. Beautiful scenery and wonderful wildlife. The picnic provided by the Folly Restaurant was excellent - we loved the old fashioned traditional picnic baskets. The Captain was very informative but a pity he did not speak louder - maybe some audio enhancement would overcome this. The stop at The Perch Pub was great but we would have enjoyed a little more time there. Highly recommend this tour.
Our tour was very peaceful, the lady driver was very welcoming and informative thoughout the trip. Our lunch was very nice but would suggest not putting cucumber in the sandwiches as they were very soggy. Would definitely to the trip again.
